Halloween de jouy Corset
PLEASE NOTE THE CUT OFF TO ORDER THESE IN TIME FOR CHRISTMAS HAS BEEN AND GONE (12/11/2020) ANY ORDERS AFTER THIS DATE WILL NOT ARRIVE IN TIME FOR CHRISTMAS.
Going to a Halloween party this year? Nor me. These are corsets for the all year round Halloween enthusiast.
Based upon the toile de jouy French vintage patterns, this beautiful Witchy print has been designed by the wonderful Georgie Collinson . You may recognise some of the people in the design, as well as all the clothes. Georgie has wonderfully captured my designs, demographic, and Victorian style in this print.
The patterned fabric is 100% cotton and printed locally in the UK, and the green silk is deadstock taffeta.
Please see the final image for details of the print. The motif you get in the middle of the corset will vary, and you should get a good mix of motifs on the different panels of your corset, but if you have a preference please leave it in the order notes.
These garments are made to order, please allow up to a month for your order to arrive, COVID delays and me being a one woman band mean eveything is arriving in a very slow fashion manner. 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 size paramaters available, just email and I should be able to cater to you. 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. All orders will come with the appropriate ribbon to lace up the corset.
*Corset Top = Straight bottom hem. Classic Corset = Pointed front.
XS 22-24 28-30 S 26-28 32-34 M 30-32 36-38 L 34-36 40-42 XL 38-40 44-46 XXL 42-44 48-50
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.
- Due to the delicate nature of these corsets they are best being hand washed, alternatively I tested and you can wash under 30 on a short wash!
- Outer of the corsets is 100% cotton, panelled with 100% silk, with satin binding and metal eyelets, so they should be pretty sound but still treat them with care as they are totally hand made.
