I have a gorgeous silk corset that I've had for several year and I am going to a ball next month and want to wear it. The only problem is that I have put on a little bit of weight and when i do it up I get quite a bit of back cleavage showing through the lacing.
I was just wondering if anyone knew how to make a vanity panel to go behind the lacing so I can hide my that bit of pudge? Or any advice on how to design one as I'm not used to making templates.
Also if anyone could give me advice on whether to go for a pencil skirt or A line skirt that would be most appreciated.
Cut an hourglass shape that will fit the space you need to cover in the back + a few inches. You'll want to sew a lining to it and you may want to add an interfacing for added support. Sew one side of the the pannel to one side of the corset so that it is behind the grommets. You should still have plenty of space for lacing them up. And that's it.
Also wear a pencil skirt. A-lines are no-go for corsets.
