How to Style A Corset with a Long Skirt

his is the same corset that can be styled with a pencil skirt. But paired with a very different skirt. In this case, it is an ankle-length red wool skirt with a pleated waistline.

This skirt features heavy pleating into the waist and quite a bit of volume. It would work well in winter with a few layers of petticoats and tights.

As with the other look on this model, she is dressed with a high neckline. In this case a white peasant blouse.

This corset is made from brown suit-weight wool (lined in cotton and linen) and trimmed with hand-woven ribbon. It is boned with cable ties under the trim.
