A single layer underbust corset in veige cotton herringbone coutil. Structured with a mix of 7mm spiral and flat steel bones. The busk fastening is the narrow steel in silver. The back eyelets are silver and the cotton lacing is unbleached cotton.
The corset is embellished with 'sweetheart' lace appliqué scalloped placement at the bustline, and symmetrical floral motifs at each hip. There is extensive flossing embroidery at the bone channels, in hand waxed cotton thread. Ruched cotton bobbinet tulle trims the top and bottom edges.
Flaws: This garment is not stitched to a retail standard and uses a longer stitch length than a bespoke garment would. There are a few areas of doubled over stitching and some very slight inaccuracy on some top stitching, but all of this is barely visible when worn. There is a tiny mark to the fabric under one of the eyelets, but this is also barely noticeable and may lift with spot cleaning.
