Black Velvet Corset by Stahlrose Black Velvet Corset by Stahlrose
Just finished ... the last piece for my clothes for Wave Gotik Treffen.
It's a corset made from black embossed velvet and trimmed with a special braid that allows fake lacings. I've set this one over the side panels (my corset has 5 panels per side), used a black satin ribbon for the lacing and attached silver aiglets to the ends of the ribbons.

I used a 34cm long busk - the longest one I've ever used for one of the corsets I've made for myself, but I have to say that it is the most comfortable corset I have.
I used 14 steel bones inside - spring steels and flat steels.

Th corset should go over a hoop skirt with a satin and lace overskirt and a "victorian" blouse (not made after a historical pattern ;) it doesn't need to be historical) and if it's getting too cold I've made a dark violet frock coat as well.
I will surely have pictures from the complete gown after the WGT :)

Fabric is awesome! But I'm totally into the design - it looks simple at first but all those details make it stylish.

Where on earth would you get the boning for this piece? I've always wanted to create a corset and can never find the boning or a pattern. I have no clue how to make it! Any help would be great.

Well, the best commercial pattern I know is the LM 100 package from Laughing Moon, it includes two corset patterns and a set of victorian underwear ;) just have a look for it.

About the boning .. well, I have a few internet shops where I can get my supplies but they won't be of any help for you, I'm from Germany :D

Perhaps this guy can help you: iconwaistedspace: or you ask here: :iconcorsetcrafters:

Me want it! Me want it! ;)
The pattern is delicious. Really gothic, and would fit any black skirt. I'm sure you had pleasure wearing it. ^^
I think that it might be quite comfortable with all that work you've putted into it. There's nothing more pleasurable, than looking at your work and smiling at your good work. :D
Why should they hide their corsets in old time? I think they're worth to show, even though I haven't got one, but I think they're doing a great job as accessories. And you're getting thinner :P
Well, I think it's pretty. I will add it to favourites, but it'll be when I'm accessing another computer, because on this one, DeviantArt is just stupid.. xD
Very very pretty ^^

Thanks for your nice comment :)

This one really is my favourite corset so far, but I have plans for more *gg* I just have to finish a big pile of comissions first

Of course more :D I'm addicted to corsets, no matter if it's wearing them (although I only do that for going out in the evening) or making them :D

Actually I'm working on getting a trade license here because I would like to take comissions officially :)

You've been there?
Great, what did you wear by the way ;)

It was too hot to wear what I wanted too, but monday was cold enough for my "elizabethan reloaded" gown ;)

.. if you come there next year, it might be a possibillity if you search for green ribbons pinned to bags, that's a sign from another forum, the people have their names written on it, my ribbon has "Steelrose" on it (my nick in english ;) )

I go every other year but I want to go more often, hopefully I'll try and make it next year, but I didn't know about green ribbons! I had to leave on monday though, that's probably why I missed the outfit :(

Well, the green ribbon thing is just a sign for the people who are member of a german forum, so I doubt that many people know about that :)

I hope to come next year as well, if you see me, just talk to me, would be great to meet someone from DA :)

It's very authenitic and luxurious looking (although I can't say that it looks too "comfortable", but I guess that's relative).

Thanks a lot :)

Well, it's not a historical authentic corset, corsets always were underwear and no women dared to show that piece ;) ... it's quite a modern fashion that corsets are worn as a top garment, and that was my intention to make this one a bit more elaborate.

.. it's authentic gothic *gg*

Well, if you wear a corste for the first time, you wouldn't call it comfortable, that's sure, but if you get a little used to it it really can be :) .. it's not that easy to explain ;)
