Seperates of the 1860's

I have have been stewing on this idea for sometime now of corsets as outerwear.  Now, this is a corselet meant to be worn as an accessory piece not necessarily meant to shape as a full corset would do.  This is of navy blue linen lined in black cotton with self piping of linen. I am very pleased on how this came out.  The Garibaldi blouse is from Truly Victorian.  I am working on another design variation of the corselet.

The skirt, well, lets just say that it is one hot mess at the moment.  It is pinned to an inch of it's life at the waist.

  1. What a lovely outfit. I love the idea of the corselet as part of outer wear. I've actually seen something like this in modern wear, back when the disco dance craze began. The blouse is really very pretty, too.

    How did the skirt turn out for you?
