September 2014 – October 2014
Laughing Moon’s Dore corset from pattern #100. The bottom was shortened 1 5/8″ to allow for a bit of hip movement. The top was taken down just a smidge and I used a 9″ busk. This is sewn as a single layer of coutil with internal bone casings. The boning is a combination of spiral steel, spring steel, and cable ties. I have to say that despite the attempt to make a can-can-able corset, it’s still rather restrictive.
