PLEASE NOTE: This listing is for the installment! For this corset I will require a non-refundable deposit of $237.50 to secure the order with one balance payment of $237.50 plus shipping due with the second payment for a total of $475 plus shipping. This corset will not ship until both payments have been made.

This is also available as a custom pattern: https://www.etsy.com/listing/106060571/custom-pattern-roses-titanic-edwardian

For Rose, being laced into her corset by her mother was intentionally and directly symbolic of being bound into the future her mother and society expected. For you, there is no such symbolism, only an undergarment of beauty.

Corsets were once serious business. Without one, a woman may as well have been naked. Some states even enacted laws prohibiting women from being in public without one. Yes, it is easy to the trained eye to tell is a lady is in a corset, a bra, or nothing at all. In states without laws mandating corsets, only the boldest of women went without corsets.

Edwardian corsets were often much longer than corsets of previous eras, extending down to the hips giving a very clean line, free from tummy bulge. For this they are called longlines. Usually they ended under the bust with the chemise underneath pulled tightly to contain and smooth the bust. Rose is an exception. Titanic happened a couple years after the end of the Edwardian era (1912 was when Titanic sailed and sank, and the Edwardian era ended with the death of the king in 1910). Your corset can be made mid-bust, as Rose's, or under the bust, which was far more typical.

I used 1/4" flat steel bones for this corset, with a stainless steel busk, and match the bone placement as closely as possible to Rose's corset, such as which seams have two bones versus one. The bones end where a non-longline corset would have them end for comfort and because extending them all to the bottom would prevent sitting. The corset laces in back with two-piece metal grommets with washers which is much stronger than fabric store one-piece eyelets that split. I use your choice of polished cotton or coutil for the outside and line with coutil, 100% cotton. The top and bottom are trimmed with 100% cotton eyelet lace in a period-correct pattern. Garters can be added on request for $10 per pair. Three pairs were common on most corsets of the era.

If you would like a mock-up for fitting purposes, which is the only way any seamstress can absolutely guarantee a 100% perfect fit on a corset that can't be fit in person, the cost is $100. However a seamstress who knows what she's doing should rarely have fitting issues. However, it can still happen due to the form-fitting nature of corsets. So far I've never had a corset that didn't fit. (*Knock on wood!*) But I will not pretend that it can not happen, for me or for anyone else. I can not guarantee an absolute perfect fit without one. But unless you have an unusual shape or fitting issues or are a man (yes, I will gladly make corsets for me - even though the styling was different, throughout much of history men actually wore corsets too!, but even i you want one like this, that's fine with me), then I suggest skipping the mock-up.

I typically will need between six and eight weeks to create your corset, depending on my current schedule. If you have a specific time you need your corset, please convo me ahead of time. Any corset needed sooner will incur a rush fee. As all the supplies are ordered from different companies (no one company carries all the supplies that meet my standards), there are rush fees I have to pay to get things sooner than the typical two-week window from time of order, plus who is happy to work overtime without being properly compensated? I do this full-time, often logging 8 hours a day six days a week with a day off (which is usually when I'll do rush-orders if I don't already have prior plans). My day off is worth something to me. :)

These pictures were taken on a couple pillows which aren't shaped like a body, so the outward pressure isn't distributed the same as it would be on a human body. Your body will not make your corset lumpy like this pillow made this corset. The bride this is for promised pictures after she finished making her own chemise, so I will share pics of this corset on a body once I have them.

SIZING: After you decide to make a purchase, I will contact you with measurements I need to make the corset. ALL gowns will involve a contract with measurements, ship-by date, shipping address, etc., for your protection as well as mine.

TIME: Please contact me. When my schedule is more open, this item can be made in as few as a couple weeks, and sometimes as long as twelve weeks. I am never in a position where I have no commissions scheduled. So please contact me PRIOR to purchase for a date, which will go into the above-mentioned contract.

SHIPPING INFORMATION: I DO ship internationally. Please convo me directly for international rates. All shipping is by UPS.

PAYMENT INFORMATION: I accept Square for payments. An invoice will be sent to you from from Square Invoicing with payment instructions, AFTER all sizing information is received and details are agreed upon. While payment isn't made the very second you order, it is much more secure than Paypal. By paying with a credit or debit card, you are protected and still have the right to file disputes, only with your card-issuer directly. Paypal also requires that good be delivered within 21 days, which is simply not alway possible when something is custom-made and will take longer than 21 days to produce and ship.

When purchasing, please check the "other" checkbox and an invoice will be sent directly to you. Thank you!

If you are looking for the most authentic Wendy Darling gown, Aria's design is definitely the one! The soft cotton fabric is hand dyed a lovely blue, and she uses sewing techniques appropriate to the time period of the original story. Aria provided me with excellent customer service from my first inquiry to the time of shipment. I am so happy with this beautiful gown, and I know I will wear it over and over!

Shipping

Shipping from United States
Processing time
Please contact me to find out when this item will be ready to ship
Within the US, items under $150 ship via USPS with delivery confirmation, or UPS at my discretion (and I will pay any additional fees if I use this method). All other items ship UPS. For international orders, orders will be shipped via USPS, and I am not responsible for items getting caught up in customs or otherwise taking a while in shipping. Sometimes items get to their destinations quickly, and sometimes they take months. This is not in my control, and you agree, by using a non-US shipping address, to hold me harmless if a package takes a longer time in shipping than the post office estimates. If you wish, UPS can be used, which guarantees a delivery date since any customs fees are billed directly to me instead of collected from you, but the cost is substantially higher, and you will be responsible for payment.

Payments

Secure options
  • Pay with Visa
  • Pay with Master Card
  • Pay with American Express
  • Pay with Discover

RUSH ORDERS: ANY gown with a needed-by date less than four weeks after order, unless otherwise stated in the listing, will incur a rush fee. The general rush fees are 25% for 21-28 days, 50% for 14-20 days plus an upgrade to overnight shipping, and 100% for fewer than 14 days plus an upgrade to overnight shipping. I can not always accommodate rush order.

I know rush fees aren't popular, but they are industry standard. For single-person businesses, like I am, accommodating rush orders can mean canceling personal plans, rearranging our schedules entirely, working very long hours (do you like to work 12 hours a day without being paid overtime?), or hiring babysitters who wouldn't otherwise be needed. While most day cares used by parents who work outside the home full time have very modest fees, or sometimes no fees, for a bit of extra time, for those of us who aren't parents and don't use day cares, we have to hire babysitters who can be very expensive depending on area. Any costs associated with a rush order will be passed to the client, which is what the rush fee is for, otherwise I may end up not only making money, but losing enough money that I would have come out financially ahead by declining the order.

In big businesses where an unknown person can be assigned to make a garment with an order-taker acting as the go-between, with small, one-person businesses, like Aria Couture and many others on Etsy, there is no one else to pass the extra work off to. The benefit is you only deal directly with the person making your creation, but the downside is that this exclusivity comes with a cost, especially if you wait until the last minute to order and we have to put our personal lives on the back burner. If you were in our shoes, you'd feel the same way.

This is why it's so important to plan ahead for your vacations, parties, Confirmations, and other events. I do what I can to accommodate rush orders.

You may be able to find a hobbyist who wants to make extra money to fund the hobby who has tons of extra times, but please understand that a true business does this full-time. This isn't an occasional-order order operation with a gown sold and made every month or two. This is an operation that takes 40 or 50 hours a week, sometimes more, a lot of time spent honing and perfecting skills to get a quality you just won't find with someone who makes something here and there. It's talent AND a skill that requires time, lots of time, and for businesses, it's typical to expect bookings months into the future, making a rush order being accepted a privilege at all, not a right with no additional fees.


CANCELLATIONS/REFUNDS: Once an order is placed, there are no cancellations or refunds. Sorry, but as soon as an order is placed, I purchase the fabrics needed to safeguard against price increases and schedule your order into my agenda.


TAXES: Due to state laws, I have to collect sales tax for items shipped to the states of California and Washington. If a business has an affiliate (whether it's someone who does work for a company, or who promotes, or who makes purchases, or is in any way affiliated with the business) in the state, then California requires the business to collect sales tax. As I am a registered business, I have to collect and remit sales tax, and can not make exceptions. Since I have to keep shipping records, there's a paper trail of what's been shipped and to where.

Returns & exchanges

Refunds or exchanges are only allowed for errors on my part, not for changing your mind. No money paid is refundable if you wish to cancel.

Additional policies

All times listed are from when the measurements are received. For my full FAQs, please see here:
