“Old blood” corset
Named “Old blood” by Laura for the deep red color of this silk. It morphs from a dark brown to a brilliant red in different lighting conditions. I’m a touch small for the corset but these photos show off the shape. The front panels have been machine quilted.
Absolutely gorgeous. I love the shape.
I’m curious, have you shaped the busk or does it curve like that naturally?
There is a shaped underbusk underneath that helps cup the stomach. The heavier duty steel will take a curve and keep it nicely. The busk steel itself is too flexible to keep a curve. The curve mimics an antique corset I have.
