September's Paper Corset Inspiration: Degas

There is something so wonderful about Edgar Degas' La Petite Danseuse de Quatorze Ans. (little dancer of 14 years). The crisp, paper look of the corset juxtaposed with the fine softness of her antique mesh skirt is so incredibly inspirational that I just can't get over it.

Edgar Degas - Little Dancer of 14 Years
This month I will create a corset in a similar style. I'll be creating the corset from paper whilst incorporating a little bit of a fabric frill at the bottom edge. I wish I could see other views of this particular piece but alas, this one will have to be enough for now. :)


  1. Hi Kellie -

    Here's a link to a different view:

    And this one has several views under the main picture that you can click on and make larger:[showUid]=171&no_cache=1


  2. Hi Elaine,

    Thank you for the links. Those were very helpful. Why didn't I think about looking for the museum website?! Ha!

    Have a great day. ;)


    1. You can buy corset dresses that are available in the internet also and can find good designs of bridal corset dresses.
