What does one wear to a birthday party on April fools day in San Francisco at Golden Gate park? Why, a silly outfit, of course!
Here is a preview of my latest pair of stays. The pattern is not directly based on any one corset but from merging some modern patterns of my own corsets with images in Corsets and Crinolines for 17th and 18th century corsets. I adapted it until I had a unique pattern that I loved on myself. I’m going to adapt the pattern to create more accurate 18th century details for my personal wedding corset. I chose to pattern match all pieces focusing at the waist-point except at the back where I centered the design on the back panels. This is the first corset where I’ve added a tail to the backpanel that flares out.
The current corset project has progressed nicely. The client even decided to make all three skirt options to increase the versatility of the corset. Luckily I have enough of this fabric to do so!
My favorite part is the piping in contrasting silk.
I’m excited about a corset/skirt design that is inprogress. Rich shot silks and embroidery in a luscious ensemble. A Venetian-style mask completes the package. Check back in a few days for pictures!
