I am not sure who made this, but it is in the photo below on Vivi Van Stori's pinup art website. I think the outfit is the prettiest thing I have ever seen and I would love ot re-create this. How could I do it?

It looks as though it is a combination of an underbust corset and an off the shoulder bra, plus a little bustle-esque thing near the hips.

I would love to see that! I think you would do a great job

I thought so too, but it appears to have some stretchy lace up front. so I am thinking maybe modifying a bra and attaching it to panties with spandex and lace?

That is so sexy!!!  If I were going to make it I would probably start out with a premade lace teddy/corset similar to this, without the ruffle and with better quality lace.

and then redo the straps and add the satin embelishments.  It might even work to start out with a really pretty lace bra and go from there or maybe a start with a black velvet corset and apply the lace and then cut the velvet from underneath.
I guess it depends on your sewing skills, but it looks like there are definately underwires in the cups to support the boobage for those off the shoulder straps.
Good luck, I want to see the finished version.

 Tongue would love to see your polymer version, nanner!

I would start with a back-hook black satin underwire corset with built in panty (I think they do or did call them a teddy) - cut the cups to be demi-bra, and top with lace.  Cut out the front panel, sew in the lace panel, and make the wide strap lacing up the front. Make a small black satin bustle in the back The sleeves are wide rectangles loosely draped and gathered.  The bottom is a flirty mini that is gathered up in a sexy cinderella style.

I don't think that lacing in the front is actual lacing, I think it's just criss crossing fabric that is sewn directly into the seams of the front panel.

oh no, I wasnt talking about the black lacing...I am talking about what is underneath.

I think I will try to Modify a teddy. Sometimes the Goodwill has brand new ones (with the tags, apparently never worn. I got a dior nightie like that once...for 2 bucks) for cheap. I really dont wanna thrift a used teddy (ick). If all else fails I can find an inexpensive one somewhere. I think I wanna stay with the red and black coloring...if it works out, I may experiment with different style variations and colors.

wow--I love red and black together...there is so much going on with this...the red and black lace is what I like the best...do you have a source for that?

It almost looks like you could use a bathing suit pattern and embellish it with the draping, etc.  I would definitely not use a teddy that has been worn...ick...I hope you make one similar and post it with how you did it...it is gorgeous!

Sorry to bump an old thread, but incase you were still interested, I found  what looks to be the exact article of clothing.

Viva always credits the clothes and designers she uses in her photos. Shoot her an email and she may remember who made the clothes.
