Upcycled Black Corset

This corset was made from a satin Chinese style shirt.
In our excitement on making this corset we had forgotten to take pictures of the Original shirt.
This corset is lined with black cotton fabric.
We used twill fabric to reinforce the busk area.
This Corset is a size 10
It has black Grommets and 3 yards of black lacing cord.
The design is Chinese Dragons and peacocks.
We used Black Satin Bias Edging.
Flat Steel Boning
Fits these measurements the best (just a guideline):
Bust 32 1/2 inches
Waist 25 inches
Hip 34 1/2 inches

If you are wanting to tight lace and are bigger then these measurements please be advised that one should take special precautions on this. For safe tight lacing we recommend that the body be a size 12 (the fallowing measurements are a guideline for a size 12).
Bust: 34 inches
waist: 26 1/2 inches
hip: 36 inches
