Starburst Edwardian Corset
Added Jun 27, 2012
This corset is made from a pattern in Norah Waugh’s Corsets and Crinolines Book. It’s a pattern from 1901 and I really love the sweeping curves of the panels. This was a new construction technique for me and I think I will use it again. I tend to draft quite curvy panel shapes which are then tricky to bone without ruining the lines of the design. This technique constructs the outer fashion layer and the inner strength layer separately and then joins them at the the centre back seams. This means the boning is all in the hidden inner layer leaving the outer layer free.
Coutil with leather and silk. Vintage lace appliqus and Swarovski crystals.
