Not an historic (or modern) garmet

Postby Sujean » Fri May 27, 2011 6:57 pm

What goes under a corset? What goes over a corset? Could it be one thing?
I thought I would try something weird.

This is a tube of cotton knit with 4 straps. Note, two are at the bottom

This is not being worn with an historical dress, so a smidgeon of extra fabric here or there shouldn't spoil the final lines of the dress.

Thanks,
I think the idea would work with a much more structured shape, but wanted something that could be whipped out in less than an hour with at most one fitting. It has a shaped seam in back that gives more room over the butt. I've seen several tanks used for under the corset and was thinking of just using a couple either separately or seamed together, but my feet didn't like the idea of a shopping trip without knowing I'd find tanks that were long enough.
