Display Corsets

I hope you all had a great Halloween season, it is always a busy one around here – many parties and fancy corsets to be made. Here are two corsets –each with a lot of personality – that I made for a display. The first is a green silk with embroidered shocking pink dots – not to my usual taste, but there was something about how the two colors played together that I couldn’t resist.
The second, is a denim – stitched in the style of jeans – and frosted with pink rhinestones and pink lace and silver nail heads – just to add the ‘over the top’ element for a ‘Country Western Queen’ look – again, not at all my usual style. But I really like the jean stitching – it worked out very well.

Both these corsets are available – I’ll give the specifications below. Please contact me for pricing if you are interested. I can always make a similar style in your size – as that is what custom work is all about. And, I now I have some corset samples on hand – which is really rare for me! All my best things go out the door – and sometimes I grow attached to them and miss them when they are gone – ok – too much information!

Here are the specifics:
Green and pink silk – black lining – Over the Bust style Actual corset measurements: Bust 35 (B-C cup) Waist 27 Hip 34.5 – Center front 15” – It will fit a figure 3-6 inches larger than the measurements.

Medium Blue Denim – black lining – 1890’s cut – with hip panels Bust 36 (C-D cup), Waist 28, Hip 37, Center front 15” – It will fit a figure 3-6 inches larger than these measurements.  Skirt -Waist 31 (sits below corset waist) Hip 36 – Lenght 17″ – stretch denim – should fit pretty tight!
