Fusion Edwardian Demibust
This pattern was developed through pattern draping following style lines from an antique which I had studied but wanted to modify for the modern corset wearer. The ribs and bust are rounded for an hourglass look and fit. Much more wearable than the classic Edwardian. The front is straight for smoothness but allows for rounded bust shaping while the silhouette is a rounded hourglass rather than the conical. Made in Chicago by Gerry Quinton the corsetière behind Morúa.
