CuriousCouture Corset Photos

It's been a while since I was able to organize a photoshoot for some of the corsets I have made; ragingamazon did a fabulous job behind the camera as usual. I just finished up cropping the first set of pics for the site. This first one is for a blue velvet underbust that I designed for ayalanya It was made from fabric that she supplied as well as two layers of coutil. There was a pair of 1/2" flat steel bones under the busk as well as 1/4" flat steel bones around the grommets. The rest of the corset is boned with 5/8" spiral steels.

I designed a skirt to go with, it is made of the same fabric and lined using a poly lining. The flower/vine pattern in the blue velvet was brought into the velvet flocked organza gore in the skirt. I drafted a standard pencil skirt and made a sweeping curve from the hip down to the mid calf for the gore. I wanted the gore to flare out A-line so I drafted the peice to be twice the size as the opening. In order to make this easier I pleated a peice of brown paper and layed the folded mockup on it and traced the outline of the gore. I cut on this line and opened up the pattern peice, the top edge was basically a sawtooth. This made it easy to cut the organza and then line back up the top edge for basting prior to inserting the gore. I also designed/created the choker to complete the outfit.

The complete set of photos can be found here. There are three pages of pics that can be accessed through the first three picture buttons on the bottom.
