Been getting a lot of client work so haven’t had time to do any making on my own projects recentally. So snuck in a bit of making on my rose corset base, want to try and incorporate corded panels instead of boning…only problem is I didn’t test out the cording on some spare fabric first, rookie mistake!
Got one panel done but not sure if I like the direction or size of the cord may take it a step back and now do some samples, ow well I’m only waistline 100% silk 😂
Finally after many hours resulting in, now very painful fingertips, but also most importantly some beautiful rose embroidery!
Finally the main focal point to my corset is taking shape the embroidery that will circle the waistband.
For my Red Rose corset I want to stick to a rich colour scheme so I am using deep reds for the rose petals and gold for the stems and thorns.
had a recent bout of inspiration and decided to create some pieces for photoshoots, starting with this beautiful RedRose corset, which will be made of cream silk, and red pleather with decorative embroidery around the waistband.
