This rich and elegant ensemble features a red and black brocade corset with matching ruby shimmering silk skirt with attached petticoat and a lace trimmed chemise.
The contouring corset is patterned to enhance and lift the soft curve of the bust, and shape in the waist. Based on a historical silhouette from the 18th century, this modern version is heavily boned for maximum shaping and structure. The waist tabs, cut in one with the corset, curve over the hips. The shoulder straps adjust with ribbon ties and form a high, off the shoulder neckline. The back is laced with a matching ribbon tie, allowing for extra adjustability. The corset is made of red with black brocade and flatlined to sturdy black cotton coutil, for long-term structure.
The full, long skirt is made of shimmering silk with a convertible back for versatility. With the use of several strategically placed ribbons, the back can be pulled up to create a full bustle or, for an extra dramatic effect, the ribbons can be untied giving the back a long full train.
For coverage and a hint of lace, a black batiste chemise is worn underneath the corset. Matching deep red lace is along the top and at the shoulders with a drawstring of 1/4″ black elastic along the neckline for adjustability. This peak of delicate lace adds a beautiful touch to the decolletage and at the upper arms.
