The VOLUSPA pattern was inspired by the cut of the riding/sports corsets C1900, short in length and finishing high over the hip.
The corset is constructed from 13 panels and measures a 20" corset waist. I chose to make this sample buskless using a single centre front panel to hold 6 flat steels in stitched channels to compress to the stomach. The corset features a further 16 bones; a combination of flexi spiral steels and flat steels either side of the eyelets. I chose a slate grey silk backed with coutil and constructed the corset with external bone casings of the same silk.
The corset was decorated with hand cut couture embellished lace applique with conical stud detail.
The style can also be made to order plain or decorated from our shop.
