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.
