With 22 Iron bones. 6 flatsteels and 16 9mm spiral steels. The waist size is 58 cm. I made a matching neck corset with a lace trimm and red rose. Maby I should replace the corset lacing with black ribbon, That might look nice!
The main fabric is a pink/purple silk shantung with a bluish green venice lace overlay. Fully-boned with 1/4" spiral steel and 1/2" flat steel (2 bones per channel for extra stiffness). I also made 6 detachable suspenders and a garter. The bows on the front of the corset are removable and can also be put on the tabs of the front 2 suspenders.
I found this design in a magazine, and made the pattern myself based off the picture. On the right is a photo of me wearing the finished product.
Edit: Thanks to ~monhegan for finding the original designer of this corset, alter-ego-erotics*llc on ebay. Mine is a much more demure take on it, as the original ends up a very bondage affair showing more of the ladies chest than not, hehe. But its a lovely corset and thanks for the inspiration to make my own pg version! If you want a direct link to the ebay store just send me a note and I'll pass it on.
A Victorian corset for my friend, Christy's, wedding. It is a three layer corset, made from washable "silk", with a lace overlay on front and back panels. It has 16 bones, both spiral and white steel. The laces are ivory ribbon. 2008
