This corset is based on the pattern in Norah Waugh's Corsets and Crinolines for the 1911 corset. The corset is very lightly boned with spiral steels and is constructed using two layers of coutil - an outer layer of white satin coutil and an inner layer of herringbone coutil. The dragons are hand embroidered in black cotton embroidery floss.
This was my first attempt at several techniques including applying an embroidered section and creating a corset with gores. As such, if I were to make it again I think I would try some different construction methods - but that's what learning is all about!
