I’ve always been fascinated with Victorian maternity and pregnancy corsets, so last year during my pregnancy I finally had the opportunity to experiment and make one for myself. Whilst I looked to history for inspiration, I decided to design my own “modern hybrid” interpretation (rather than make a replica of any existing extant design). Using a self drafted pattern, spot broche coutil, German synthetic whalebone, elastic and lots of adjustable lacing I was able to create a comfortable, supportive corset that fit throughout the entirety of my pregnancy.

2020 has been full of big changes and exciting milestones in my personal life – my partner and I will be welcoming our first baby into our lives in the next few days. We celebrated our impending arrival at 38 weeks (nearly 4 weeks ago now) with a special photoshoot in Wellington with Yvonne Liew. I made myself a maternity gown out of a delicious black floral brocade and made it to fit over a maternity corset that I made for myself during my pregnancy.
