Exciting news from our atelier – we designed the custom corsets worn by Miranda Lambert and The Pistol Annie’s at their CMA Music Festival performance at LP Field. The show, Country’s Night To Rock, was taped in June but airs tonight on ABC!
Miranda’s corset was a challenge because of its custom cap sleeve, something we’ve never attempted before and she ended up loving.
Our sleeve innovation started with this simple bra cup that we turned into a structured shoulder pad. We then attached a custom made leather strap that is detachable from the corset.
For the next step was to cover the shoulder pad with the stretched black lambs leather. Guess what we used? Rubber cement a trick we learned from watching our dad make saddles for cowboys in our basement – Thanks Dad!
Once the sleeves were covered in leather and sewn together we hand stitched two rows of chains around the rim of the shoulder pad. We spent extra time carefully measuring the chains to get the asymmetrical flattering look.
Voila!!! They turned out so cool and Miranda looked amazing in them!
