This item sold on July 31, 2012.
The sample has an 11" steel busk with gold metal hooks&studs. Antique gold busks are also available now, let me know if you'd prefer antique when you order (see last photo for a sample of the antique)! Finished front length is approximately 12". The straps are made of the black silk; they attach with buttons on the front of the corset, and have smaller matching buttons connected with chains where they cross in front. Buttons are attached through buttonholes; they can be removed to wear the straps crossed in the back. Can also be made without the straps, as shown in model photo, see: http://www.etsy.com/listing/88801793/sky-pirate-striped-steampunk-corset-no
There are 22 spring steel bones placed throughout the corset, to cinch in your waist while also placed in position to be comfortable on your body. The corset laces in the back with 2 piece gold grommets, which are smooth against the skin, and laces with black satin ribbon.
I made the pattern for this corset, custom designed, based on Victorian patterns, but modified to fit the bodies of modern women.
**It can be made in any measurements below 30" corseted waist, and 40" corseted bust/hip. Other sizes, please contact me first, as your corset may require more boning!
Corsets are generally made 4" smaller than your natural waist measurement. Please make sure you measure properly as this is a custom piece, there are no returns, I would be happy to assist you with the measurements, should you need any clarifications on where to measure. I will send you a measurement diagram upon ordering, with the measurements I need. It will take about 2-3 weeks after payment clears for construction and shipping.
I can ship internationally, but please keep in mind the customs charges of your own country, as you will be responsible for them.
Please feel free to ask any questions you may have!
