Gorgeous lime green & black corset

Gorgeous lime green & black corset

This Lime green & black corset was based on a pattern that a friend drafted. As she has copyrighted it I asked her permission first! My client had a dress which she really liked, and she had been trying to find other garments in a similiar colour. I dyed the coutil using Dylon 'Tropical Green'. It is always nerve wrecking waiting to see what colour comes out of the washing machine! Coutil takes dye beautifully. I used sheer black fabric in the panels so that you could get an unexpected flash of skin. There was more handsewing than normal in this corset. I found it easier to hand sew the sheer black panels into place rather than trying to use the sewing machine. Another corset wish I could wear myself!
