Another impulse fabric purchase and my first attempt at making a corset style top. Plastic boned, with gimp braid over the boning for decoration and extra strength. The front of the top is made from a Japanese design cotton fabric and lined with cotton drill. The back and side panels are corduroy with cotton drill lining (learnt the hard way that corduroy is only strong in one direction, so the back panels had to be taken apart and relined with the stronger cotton drill). Decorative trim at the top is made from purple tulle ribbon and more gimp braid.
Matching hat made from a fascinator base covered with the same fabric, hat netting gathered on top and sewn loosely in random places to creat a full, ruffed up effect. Matching tulle ribbon tied in a bow and added to the back as extra decoration
Cotton, corduroy, cotton drill, rigiline boning, gimp braid, tulle ribbon, fascinator hat base.
