Lorelle's Pink and Black One Shoulder Corset Dress
During this week, I finished hand making a custom order for one of my dear customer's, Lorelle.
Lorelle and her sister Leanne, wanted one of my corset dresses each to wear to a family wedding in January 2011. Leanne instantly loved the Silver Floral Corset Dress, and coincidentally the size 10 fitted her perfectly.
Lorelle originally wanted a corset dress like the Black Citrus Corset Dress, but since Leanne was already wearing the same shape, I suggested that I design on especially for her!
Introducing the Pink and Black One Shouldered Corset Dress!
I thought you may like to see a few photos of me creating this beautiful dress!

The dress itself has 3 layers: outer fabric (either Pink cotton/elastane print, or black ribbed poly blend), fusing then bright pink lining.

Above, the back of the dress. Note that all seams are matched!

Sewing through a few layers of the corset to secure the boning in place.

And under-stitching the neckline so the black fabric stays rolled under.
You can also read about another lady's feedback, who wore the Silver Floral Corset Dress to her daughter's wedding, here.
I am looking forward to seeing some photos from the wedding day ladies!
