The Shweshwe Corset

11 Jul

Over at Lady Wilhelmine’s I have been documenting my long and relatively stress-free journey of creating the Shweshwe corset. This definitely falls under the more miscellaneous of my creations.

Here are some pics:

To see the process and here my thoughts on 18th century corsetry in general check out Lady Wilhelmine’s Boudoir.
