The complicated fin de siecle corset era has to be my bestest favorite…that’s what gives that black sequined gown it’s shape. I need more of these in my life.
Working in Color!
Working in color today! Hand finishing corsets and pairing their silk ribbon corsages…classic black satin is nice, but salmon, coral, and blue are so cheerful. 😃
Corsets & Petticoats
What’s a corset without the softness of a petticoat? I love the contrast of lacy layers spilling from a tightened waist, don’t you?
Long sewing day…time to unlace and watch a movie. Currently enjoying “Hotel Portofino” on PBS via Amazon Prime. Now I want to go to Italy…combined with a little dress up, of course.
And More From The Atelier…
Corsets I can understand…but intentionally shelfing your rear view is well, insane.
And yet…we wear them and think they’re awesome. Check out that side view! In 1885, that was tres chic.
