From the Leicestershire County Council’s Heritage Services:
Each of these extant Victorian corsets features bold flossing, from very complex to very simple, and all beautifully done.
I spoke about this beautiful corset during the Beginning Corset Flossing Workshop on Jan 29th. It’s an 1895 woman’s corset, in the Symington Collection of Early Corsets.
This corset features gorgeous embroidery that looks like feathers, applied over the boning and cording. If you wanted to create a similar design on your own corset, I would recommend applying it decoratively, in only the top layer of material.
This woman’s corset, dated to 1900, features contrast boning channels in differing lengths adorned with wheat-chaff pattern black flossing.
Another corset from 1900, features contrast crossed flossing in a wide design.
