There are more ways to be inspired by eighteenth century style dress than the classic Marie Antoinette and "Dangerous Liaisons" routes. A 1780's corset, cut for the 21st century body (albeit "underwear as outerwear"!) is a style which sculpts the waist and cleavage.
Shown here, a fully boned, eighteenth century style
corset in gold/black silk dupion with hand-stitched silk-bound tabs at the waist and matching organza tie-on sleeves. Decorated
with dark green velvet leaves and scattered beading.
Corset and tie-on sleeves (before decoration) - £950 plus fabric and chosen decoration. Skirts are designed to each individual order, varying from organza ballgown shapes to fitted fish-tails or matching silk dupion skirts. Priced from £900, depending on style and fabric.
