The Addy overbust worked in beige coutil and trimmed in champagnes and creams with a touch of cinnamon.

Addy is an 8 panel overbust. It has 22 sping steel bones (the grommets are supported by 4 bones on each centre back panel, 1 on centre back side and 3 on the other) and 4 spiral bones at the centre bust (2 on each front piece).

Centre bust is also worked with horizontal cording for softer support and aesthetics.

Cinnamon coloured 6cm double faced satin ribbon laces the back and antique cream coloured cotton lace (dyed and weathered) adorns the lower edge with cream coloured insertion lace fitted with 5mm soft gold doble faced satin ribbon.

A bow made of grosgrain edged champagne blush double faced satin ribbon with cinnamon coloured cotton/silk floss cente is placed mid decolletage.

The busk will feature handpainted pale gold over silver fittings and pale gold machine punched grommets.


  • Handstitching trim and embroidery left to go.
