* Measurments for corsets are given for fully laced garment. Normally a corset has a gap between center back panels. I construct 4 cm gap, but this space varies from one body to another.

Mark Twain's “The Prince and the Pauper” inspired corset. Corset is made of soft corsetry mesh covered with the thinnest dotted tulle. Side panels and top edge are decorated with hand embroidered silk velvet. Ornaments on the corset refer to the recognizable patterns of the Tudor dynasty. Embroidery is made of gimp wire, Swarovski bicones, metallic beads and sequins in various techniques including goldwork and luneville embroidery.

Historically accurate S-curve construction, pattern drafted by Joëlle Verne of Atelier Sylphe.

This corset took part in Foundation Revealed Contest 2021.
