Iceberg Corset Dress
Added Feb 3, 2012
This corset dress is based on a 1912/1914 patent for a ‘boneless’ corset. The palette is inspired by the colour of icebergs above and below water. I am a member of the corsetry site Foundations Revealed and this is my entry into their annual competiion.
It has a coutil strength layer with deep blue dupion silk below the waist and white patent leather above. The original patent has been adapted with the addition of gores at the bottom of the dress made from power mesh. They add comfort (and cheekiness) to the dress. The gores in the top panel are highlighted in pearlescent ice crystal sequins.
