Damsel in this Dress Corsets
Caribbean Paisley Courtier Corset
-Sleeves NOT included. I promise, I was going to take a picture without the sleeves, but I was so cold that my teeth were chattering and I was wiping a way tears. Sleeves stayed on! ;)
*NOTE* this fabric is still an upholstery/drapery weight, but it's a different weave than I have used before. Because it hasn't been tested with time, distress, and repeated wearing like my other fabrics, I'm offering these with a HUGE discount. The only thing that I ask is that you test the fabric out and shoot me an email after you've worn the corset several times. Let me know how it holds up. This had a tendency to fraying when we were sewing it, so we did a TON of extra reinforcement on the insides. You will also see extra rows of stitching in some places. I just like to check all the boxes and do the best job I can. ;) If you need help down the road, the normal fees for repairs will apply.
-This Corset features a beautiful shaping sweetheart neckline, adjustable shoulder straps, a dashing little collar that can stand up or be folded down, and winding, hourglass lines. It has wonderful “supportive” powers for larger chested women, but also works cleanly for all shapes of women, as corsets are meant to “reshape” the body you have. As with all of our overbust corsets, it was designed to be worn over a bra, making it so you can wear your normal support, and this fits cleanly over it. Since our corsets don't have bras built into them, I've always felt that it's better to have a proper initial shape and support, and then wear a bodice along with it.
*These corsets are built with 9 pieces of boning, which includes our standardized extra back boning which we started putting into all of the "vest" full back corsets this year. Heck-to-the-YES.
