This design can be made to order in other sizes. No 2 are exactly identical, each one is an individual item of wearable art, I often use vintage and recycled materials in my work, so where this applies, identical fabric may not be found, where identical fabric cannot be used, I will source alternatives/ make to your design specifics. For made-to-measure prices and to discuss your specific design ideas and requirements just get in touch :)
Collar is optional.

If you are interested in ordering a corset, note that all of my made to measure corsets are made with width measurements AND length measurements, not just waist size. So I can cater for a multitude of shapes, sizes and proportions, as well as any design specifications. Just get in touch to discuss! :) If an ex display sample, or a sample size item is listed with a clothing size, rather than a 'waist' size, please don't be put off- I do this because 'clothing' sizes seem to be more universally understood. My steel boned corsets are suitable for tight lacing. If you are interested in one of my samples but cannot find a waist sizein the description, just send me a message and I'll get back to you ASAP!xMost of my designs are custom designed for the customer, and whilst I may create a smilar style, I promise never to make 2 the same. I want every item I make to be unique,and I want my customers to have something that is theirs, and theirs alone.
The construction process;
I design and draft a pattern, alter the pattern to any specific custom requests and I source material. My steel corsets all consist of three layers; a cotton lining, a coutil middle layer (this is a non stretchy, rigid corset middle, and the outer layer of fabric unique to each design (finer fabrics are mounted on an additional coutil layer when necessary). The corsets have 10 spiral steel bones, and 4 flat steel bones, always at least 7mm wide, and, where used, a steel centre front busk and a minimum 1" wide waist stay. All bones are capped, and the ensemble is double stitched on all seams, and top stitched. Bias binding is sewn down by hand to ensure an even, professional result.
Eyelets are fixed in with washers to make them extra secure, this is done with a mechanical press. And then I make and attach modesty panels and any embellishments.
