SAMPLE Spot Broche Short Cincher With Lace Appliqué - 24" 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. A single layer underbust corset in white/pink spot broche coutil. Structured with a mix of 7mm spiral and flat steel bones. The centre back eyelets have a baby pink coating and are laced with unbleached cotton laces. These can be switched out for white laces for an additional charge. There is a one inch cotton twill waist tape.
The corset is embellished at the sides with hand painted flourishes of French chantilly lace in soft pink and ivory tones.
There are numerous flaws to this piece but they do not affect the garment wearability and aren't visible from a distance. Due to sewing machine issues with stitch tension, the stitching on the front bone channels is doubled over. The thread is slightly offshade from the main fabric, as is the binding. The binding is made of a pre-made cotton sateen and is entirely machine stitched.
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.
Closed waist: 24"
CF height: 8"
CB height: 8.5"
Side height: 4.5"
This piece is not recommended for tightlacing due to the construction methods used, so is best suited for someone with an individual with a natural hourglass figure.
