I adore the images of women photographed by Irving Penn in the 50's. The style was amazing, the women always older and so very elegant. I have pored over them all my adult life in utter admiration. I have also always loved the Georgian Sack dresses that women wore over their corsetry with the huge pleated back of the dress emphasising the tiny, pinched waist in the front. This dress is my homage to both of these loves. A dress that works on a fuller figure, to flatter and create a fabulous figure, that is comfortable and easy to wear. The illusion is created by the belt only going around part of the dress, through slits in the front. I am wearing a corset, a waist cincher, beneath with my own belt in front to give the illusion of a small waist. The dress flares out behind me doing all the rest of the work.
