Here is a somewhat better lit shot of the front of an asymmetrical bespoke corset. This piece was a fun adventure as my client allowed me a good deal of creative freedom with the design. It’s also a bit of a departure from my usual construction methods with the boning being hidden for a smoother look under clothes. I was so thrilled to hear from this client a couple of weeks ago to let me know how much she’s enjoying wearing it and that it’s very comfortable!
Cassandra decided on colours that would imply an elegant take on traditional shapewear and I just adore the richness of the beige with the black coutil. The bones of this piece are built on to an inner foundation of coutil, covered by a soft cotton sateen lining. The outside is an asymmetrical six panel design in rose brocade coutil. The coutil was hand dyed to match the beige colour of the plush Italian silk peau de soie appliques. Gold hardware completes the warm tones of the fabric. Much basting and draping went into this gorgeous piece!
