Violet

I couldn’t design a collection based on Victorian undies without my version of a corset!
This one has a snap front closure as well as a laced up back. The cups and halterneck bring it stylishly up to date and can be worn on its own or over a lightweight top.
As this is a knitted corset, there is no real support so it is very important to use a stiff, non-stretchy, non-drapy yarn to get a proper fit.
