Costume Piece: Corsets

Of the two corsets featured here, the cream coloured one I designed for a costume specifically, the black was my first corset, which was made from a purchased pattern.
For the cream underbust corset I draped the pattern. It is designed to be a waist cincher specifically. Both use coutil as the main structural fabric, with no decorative layer. The cream corset has a very subtle floral pattern in the weave. I made my own silk piping trim for each.
