Description

This was commissioned for a cruise. I used the sheer panels featured in one of my other corsets displayed in my gallery. I used basic corset construction techinques, but I used hand sewing to insert the the panels – far less stressful on this occassion! I dyed the coutil using Dylon ‘Tropical Green’. Coutil takes dye beautifully and I always wait with anticipation to see what shade the fabric becomes. Each corset I make is a one off, so my customers truly end up with a designer garment.

    STUNNING! The sheer panels create a illusion of smaller waist and make this corset look modern!!!

      lol it was my first time making one and I didnt have any instructions.. the ones I saw online didn’t make sense to me hahaha But I do have it posted in my projects under “The Stress Dress” haha

      Im definitely inspired to make another one now though :P maybe to replace the one I did make. haha I forgot to put a busk in it :P
