fashion illustrated – wool corset

When I got home I discovered that the key was attached to a USB with a voucher for a free custom corset! Amazing!  The options are either vinyl or bring-your-own-fabric so I looked into my stash and cut some swatches to help me picture a corset made of some lovely brushed wool that I have.

I will be posting a series on the process of getting a custom corset from Starkers!, so stay tuned for that in the upcoming weeks.
