I love integrated corsetry and how a dress looks on the body when corseted. The corset is always the centre of attention I think and I like to build the dress around it. When I have created a vertically pannelled corset dress I have often had issues with the boned coutil strength layer showing uderneath the fashion fabric - there can be a distinct unsightly line. By constructing the panels in a horizontal manner this doesn't happen - the concentric skirt panels fall away from the corseted section beautifully. It is difficult to attain too much reduction constructing the corset in this way but the smooth silhouette obtained more than makes up for it I think.
