Custom Feathered and Rhinestone Corset Dress
This overbust corset is constructed from 7 panels of bone white or solid black silk; your choice. It's reinforced with a layer of thick duck canvas and lined with a thick canvas toile print fabric. The edges and seams are encased in bias tape. it will pull in your waist 2-3 inches and give your mid-section a nice waspy, hour glass appearance. If you choose the white version it will be done in white silk with all off-white feathers. Conversely the black version will be in black silk with raven black (blackish green) coque feathers and solid black ostrich plumes as shown in the 4th and 5th photos.
There is flat steel boning throughout (1/2" and 1/4" flat spring steel). It laces up through double sided grommets in the back. I've appliquéd large rhinestone brooches to the front as well as hand applied and carefully glued ostrich and coque feathers over most of the corset.
It is truly a wearable work of art! Will be carefully secured and packaged in a large box so the feathers will not be crushed during shipment.
There will be a small gap in the back so please consider this when planning your complete outfit. The bottom feathers will overlap a tad to cover most of your behind :)
the Skirt bottom is a separate piece and is fully lined with ample amounts of gathered fine tulle mesh. Can be made with a train or not.
Because of the expense of materials for this corset I'm only custom making this piece up to a size 32" natural waist before charging up-sizing fees. Please inquire if you need a larger size.
*This is a custom-sewn corset made to your measurements (see diagram). I will need 5 measurements in order to complete your corset. 1.) how tall are you? 2.) your overbust and bra size, #3) your underbust measurement 4.) your natural waist measurement 5.) your upper hip measurement.
For the last 4 measurements, measure around your torso at the points which correspond to the lines on the diagram ( the last image). You can give me measurements in inches or centimeters. Please ask if you have any questions about how to take your measurements.
When deciding which size is right for you, it's best to go 3-5" smaller than your natural waist. 2-3" smaller will allow you to almost fully close the corset and 4-5" will leave a small gap in the back to show off the lacing. Please take into consideration that bulky clothing will add 1/2"-1" to your measurements. Please convo if you have any questions about sizing.
