The Knitter Sews a Corset. Why?




Here we have Laughing Moon's Victorian Underwear pattern - the Dore and the Silverado corsets. The fitting muslin for the Silverado went like clockwork. At some point I am sure I will get back to the knitting, but this sure is fun. (AND NO, it's not kinky)
Farthingales explains it all:
"Why wear a corset?
A corset can be worn for many reasons. At Farthingales L.A. we focus on beauty and practicality. Yes, a corset is seen by some to have sexual connotations but no one can deny that more than anything they beautify the body. The shape is appealing to the eye and there is something fascinating about the structure. You will never be missed if you’re wearing a corset but more importantly you will feel great.
Wear a corset to be noticed.
Wear a corset to feel confident.
Wear a corset to get a vintage silhouette and fit a period costume
Wear a corset to fit last years dress or this year’s bargain buy
Wear a corset to fit into vintage dresses!
Wear a corset to support your back
Wear a corset to encourage better posture
Wear a corset for FUN… we may even still have the pink camouflage one in stock… or the purple leopard skin.
Wear a corset for elegance
Wear a corset because there is no better way to go strapless!
Wear a corset to make a statement. "
Progress will be posted.
