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
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...
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
