Padme - Elizabethan Corset by Verdaera Padme - Elizabethan Corset by Verdaera
This corset is meant to go with my Padme Gown I'm making. The gown in question appeared in Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones, but was cut from the final movie. (It can be seen in the Special Features on the DVD. Here is a picture of the gown I am going to create: [link] )

The shape of the gown and the shaping in the bodice suggested to me she had historical-shaped undergarments, so I made it Elizabethan in style, using the 'effigy corset' in Norah Waugh's Corsets and Crinolines and modifying it. It's not 100% Historically accurate because it's meant for a Star Wars costume, but I may reuse it for historical purposes.

I used the 'watered' or 'moire' "silk" fabric (which is actually a poly/cotton from JoAnn's home dec section) for the front because it's the same fabric I'm using on the front of the dress. The top layer is backed with cotton coutil, and is lined with a heavy decorative cotton I had leftover from an Elizabeth Swann underdress. I used metal grommets in the back, and decided to do double-lacing so I could get into it more easily myself (that's the historically innaccurate part... but who cares!) I used metal eyelets for lacing on the future hoopskirt, and hand-stitched over them because that kind of eyelet falls out. It's boned with reed and a steel bone in the center front.

Came out very nice!

Always thought it was facinating the Tudor-era corsets were designed to squish in womens boobs...

Thanks! Yeah, the whole "Ice Cream Cone" silhouette seems so strange and unnatural
