From Vogue Knitting, Holiday 2004:

“Want to look romantic and sexy all at once? Cue the corset. Jennifer Hansen uses Tunisian crochet to bring a 19th-century undergarment into the 21st-century spotlight. It’s worked in “Karat” by Skacel Collection. The front and back are laced together with a length of “Hanah Silk” ribbon by Artemis.“
