Halter neck corset and gown notes and ideas

There are so many different ways of approaching straps on a corset gown, one of the most popular for some women is the halter neck.  It is a great way to disguise broader shoulders and create a gorgeous, feminine look on every body type but even within this one idea, there is so much room for imagination and individualisation...

These are some rough mock up of various arrangements with chiffon and lace to fuel your inspiration...

I made five of these for my wedding party, they looked great all together on the day, I loved the fact that each element that went in to the design had some history or tale behind it.

New fabrics for August...

August is a really exciting month, the colours of spring are still lingering, with the vibrance of summer deepening in to the promise of autumnal shades...anything goes in August.

We have a few new designs this month and a selection of new fabrics, antique and vintages laces.

My favorite new design for this month is the Alice inspired corset gown.... Click on the image to see more...

We always get very excited about new supplies of Victorian, antique and vintage lace because they are so rare and unique... These are the results of a recent treasure hunt!

Do feel free to get in touch if there is something that you are looking for in particular, we are constantly updating the inspiration section of our website if you are browsing for ideas.


Finally an update!

It has been a bit of a whirl wind ride for the last few too many months but we are back posting new fabric colours and inspirations for you!

One of my biggest favourites at the moment is cream with burgundy accents, the pearls and garnets complement each other so well and can be made as dramatic or subtle as the whim takes you, more burgundy means more drama.

Another colour combination that I have recently developed a new infatuation with is dark forest green and dark cream, a spectacular combination for spring and summer weddings or proms.

About this blog

Whether you are shopping on my website or on my Etsy shop, I needed a way to catalogue and display a large number of the fabrics that I have available for corsetry, evening wear, bridal gowns and custom clothing from standard stock ranges, limited editions, vintage pieces and new arrivals.

Use this for inspiration and design help... have a look at my other blogs for pictures of made items and frockumentaries.

Feel free to message me if you have questions because it will take a while to get through all the fabrics, photograph and post them especially as I have new stock in all the time and I am REALLY busy in the studio.
