Kerrang 2010

Glasgow, United ...






After being lucky enough to be invited to the London Kerrang Awards I decided to go the whole hog and created a fitted bodice with a waspie to boot… It boasted a wide brimmed neck and a scoop back that skimmed the top of the corset beautifully. A circle skirt with a netting underlay added volume and extenuated the waist.

Material Notes

Silk taffeta for the body.
Tulle for the underlay.
Embroidered satin for the corset with a poly cotton lining.

    HOLY…! I need to make something like this.

    What did you do for a corset pattern? Did you use one or did you self-draft?

      This was a butterick I jazzed around with…

      I recommend sizing the panel pieces to your measurements then sketching the finished shape onto the toile while sitting on the body.

      If you don’t have an accomplice for this/don’t trust anyone else to shape it correctly you can always smooth the lines out when you take it off and fold it in half before you cut it to guarantee symmetry.

    Great color and silhouette. Love the volume in the skirt.
