Black Velvet Corset
Available 25/09/2020 at 8pm GMT
Be a vision in velvet. These corsets will make a fabulous addition to your witchy wardrobes. Wonderful for yourself, as a gift for a someone, or for your local Victorian fanatic.
They're BACK! I am so happy to announce that these corsets will now be made from 100% deadstock fabric. This means that they will be available in limited batches whenever I can get my hands on remnant or deadstock black silk velvet.
As usual these garments are made to order so please allow up to 4 weeks for your new purchase to arrive. Made to order is a far more sustainable way to make new clothes as it means I am not making surplus that could end up un-sold! Being made to order also means if you don’t think you fit the sizes available, email me and I should be able to cater to whatever ammendments you need. I will endeavour to get orders to you as soon as possible, but if you need it for a specific date do not hesitate to message me prior to buying and we can work something out.
These corsets are not boned but are strengthened by the outer fabric being bonded to the lining. Being not boned makes them more comfortable than a traditional corset but still structurally sound enough to cinch you in. Another new element on the velvet corsets is that the eyelets are not metal but are hand sewn by me, just as Victorian women did. A lovely nod to traditional corsetry techniques. This is a very time consuming process and is reflected in the slightly raised price in these corsets.
All orders will come with the appropriate ribbon to lace up the corset.
*Corset Top is the straight across the bottom style, Classic Corset is the pointed bottom style.

Measure the smallest part of your waist and the widest part of your chest (across the nipples) tightly. If you wear a bra I would advise doing this without a bra as this is more likely how you'll wear it.
If you are on the cusp of a size (for instance 25" waist) I would advise sizing down if you want that classic 18th century wench look, the corset will still fit fine and will just have that traditional gap at the back with the lacing up. If you are worried or have a larger bust/waist for instance than what is listed, just add it to the order notes and I will adjust the size of your corset accordingly.
