Jill Hoverman specializes in historical styles and design
techniques, such as traditional flossing, seen left. Flossing is
embroidery that was popular in Victorian corsets and initially used in corset making
to secure boning in channels.
Today it is primarily
used as a decorative addition to period-perfect
We offer three designs and many colors of thread
which can contrast with, or closely match, your corset
fabric. In choosing thread color, note that the brighter
colors will tend to show best on a dark background,
while pastel colors on pastel fabric will be more subtle.
Note that colors you envision may not be the same
as those we mention. For example, there are many shades
of "red" from blue-red to tomato red. If you have a specific
color or hue in mind, please send us a sample of the
color you desire for a match.
If you wish
flossing to be in a different color from your grommet
embroidery, also send us email to specify grommet color,
otherwise both elements will be created in the same
You may view below the individual style choices for flossing, and
