SAMPLE Hand painted white coutil 'Bird's Wing' overbust corset - 22" waist
Please read the condition description carefully, as this is a flawed sample piece and is not sewn to a retail or bespoke standard.
This corset sample was made as a detailed toile to test a Sparklewren corset pattern. It uses a single layer of white herringbone coutil and is structured with a mix of synthetic baleen and flat steel. The eyelets at the centre back are finished with black enamel. The garment has been hand painted in an ink drip style. The binding is all hand finished.
An unembellished overbust corset typically starts at 17,500NOK when custom made; an unembellished Bird's Wing style would start at around 25,000NOK
The binding is a pre-made cotton sateen with a different texture from the main fabric, with slight buckling at the centre front point of the bustline (barely visible when worn). There are some issues with inconsistent stitch length, particularly on particularly bulky fabric areas, however this is not visible from a distance. The back panels are lined with contrasting white/pink spot broche coutil (not visible from the exterior). This sample has been worn briefly for one photoshoot.
Best suited for approximately a UK 12. See the full measurements below for details.
Measurements are provided with the corset laced completely shut, but of course the garment can be worn with a gap in the back (recommended up to 2"). Lacing gaps should be one of the following shapes: /\ \/ || - a lacing gap of )( or () shapes may damage the corset with prolonged wear.
