Silk Filigree Corset by taeliac Silk Filigree Corset by taeliac
Well, I finally got a chance to get the measurements on this corset and get it listed on Etsy!

This was the actual reason I made the red Kimona wrap, because I couldn't think of anything pretty to show off this corset. The idea for the wrap hit me when I was falling asleep, thinking too much about it ^^;


Anywho, this corset is one of my favorites. It's a combination of leather and silk for the outside. The red sakura flowers are filigree cut-outs, and made from the silk from an old, red obi (the same one that this corset was made from as well)

The silk is stitched down under the leather, and then the leather is (carefully!) cut away to show the silk - that was perhaps one of the most nerve-wracking things I had done in a long time when I made this one.

All coutil, boned on each seam, two part grommets, and fully reversible (check the Etsy listing for pictures of the inside fabric - I :heart: it!) No nasty top-stitching, even around the bias - no sense in making it look ugly on one side, or at least, that's my view on corsets...

:star: This is currently available in my Etsy store @ TSVintage.Etsy.com if you are interested in it.

I can also remake this in different colors/styles/sizes, just let me know what you're thinking of.

As per before, my model is the lovely ~MedeaHiasobi

Thank you very much!! I was happy that the reds matched so closely - I get irritated that it's impossible to find reds that match :faint:

Yeah the issue being money still, but now I got a job I might be able to save up better after summer (since during the summer my girlfriend gets less work and thus less payment and we need to make up for that) which means new outfits sooooooner!

Thank you thank you!!

Yep! Well, I kind of designed it - I knew I wanted to do something with the silk and leather (first time working with leather :faint:) but wasn't really sure what to do, and then it just kind of clicked - most of my designs and ideas come that way, just more out of the blue than anything :blush:

I only design. I can't sew all that well, and when I do I'm lucky to get projects even mostly finished. ^^;

You have started a business for this, right? Web based?
