Minimal Corsetry - thoughts
Oh dear... Following on from my post about trends the other day, I have just thought of a way of perhaps getting the number of panels per side ever further down, for corsetry that is somehow simultaneously a sister and total stranger to the Birds Wing...
It may not prove the most pleasing or practical option, but certainly worth exploring. And it's based around a few antique patents I have seen. One in particular, which makes use of three panels per side plus darts. My feeling is that in attempting "minimal" corsetry, one would not want to incorporate darts. It seems less elegant, somehow. But I have just thought of a way around it. A pretty obvious way, now that I think about it! So perhaps I will give it a go.
Another challenge to tackle!
