Heather of Army of Knitters tells us
"I couldn’t design a collection based on Victorian undies without my version of
a corset!" And Violet is perfect with its snap front closure as well as its laced up back. The cups and halterneck bring it stylishly up to date and can
be worn on its own or over a lightweight top. As this is a knitted corset,
there is no real support so it is very important to use a stiff, non-stretchy,
non-drapy yarn to get a proper fit.
