Yellow silk dupion corset. very loosely based (at the front) on Butterick B4254, View D but very heavily modified by me. Made to complement the stunning millinery of Le Hat Noir (http://www.myspace.com/lehatnoir).

This corset was made for another model but we swapped them all around on the day. It is actually miles too big for the model (you can see this especially at the hip) but I think that we got away with it. I also ran out of busks so just used a short one and pinned the front. Still have to put a couple of grommets there so I can add a ribbon closure for the top. Was shut with a pin for the show!!

Material Notes

Gorgeous yellow/white shot silk dupion outer shell, 2 layers of white corset coutil lining/interlining, black Prym 5mm grommets, black duchesse satin binding, black lace trim with black/white/gold jaquard ribbon between. Steel boning and busk.

    That is very snazzy! It’ll be great to see it on the proper model so that it is ‘filled up’ at bust and hips. :)

      HI Kate it would be. We winged it on the day as it is such a tight lacer but it was really abut a sz16. Our lovely model was about an sz8, but she carried it off very well. x

    Oh Adriana, I am laughing here too. It was such a rush to finish all these. I was still sewing people into things backstage 10 minutes before the show. I would love to help you out. I think that I would learn so much :-) I am sure that your wedding dress will be beautiful. Have a great week too. xx
