Corded Corset

This is my attempt at creating a late nineteenth century corded corset. I found the pattern quite challenging but I feel the result is well worth it, especially when I finally get around to doing the flossing. The design is probably not quite right for bridal wear, but I think it would be fabulous worn beneath period costume.

I may try and create a very similar shaped, but much simpler corset that I can use beneath some of my bridal dresses as the shape is so flattering. The majority of the dresses I make are corseted, as it creates such a flattering foundation.
