Investigating selected key words from this year's theme (satin, intersection of light, stripes, interlacing, ribbon and the softness of light), I approached this project with the desire to weave a fabric in satin ribbon which changed in different light conditions. Using a technique known as triaxel weaving or Japanese meshwork, I created a handwoven satin fabric with 6mm single sided satin ribbon and broke up the woven panels with intense black satin for contrast.   This corset has been a project of firsts for me; using satin, weaving my own fabric to use in my work, underbust shape with interesting curves on the hems and construction techniques and I have enjoyed every moment.   It's been wonderful to incorporate my knowledge of weaving with my developing skills in corsetry.
