Silk duchesse, cotton bobbinet tulle, silk tulle, French chantilly leavers lace.
An ensemble inspired by couture 1950s foundationwear. The Cathedral style bra is based on an original vintage pattern, whilst the cincher incorporates a double layered circle skirt in silk tulle and horsehair braid hem. Both pieces use cotton bobbinet tulle (a fabric favoured by couturiers for strong yet flexible foundations), fine silk duchesse satin and hand applied French chantilly lace appliqué. Lace motifs are hand stitched flat and with 3D texture, finished with sew on Swarovski crystal elements.
