It is made from pure silk dupion in a soft willow shade. The construction of the corset is based on a traditional 19th century block. All of the seams are fully boned with sprung steel rods and the back of the corset is laced through antique brass eyelets.
The detailed applique work on the shoulders is a result of many, many hours of hand finishing. The flowers are constructed from intricate layers of silk, chiffon, organza and netting. Each layer is delicately frayed and singed then gathered together. The centre of the flowers are detailed with beading and embroidery before being hand stitched into place with the soft ragged layers that fall onto the arm. Droplets of crystal beads further enhance this beautiful shoulder detail.
We can offer variations of this design in a wide selection of colours and fabrics. The price to produce something similar to this would be in the region of £150 - £200
