SAMPLE - Deadly Nightshade Couture corset dress and skirt, 22" waist, 30D/32C/34B bust
A one-of-a-kind couture sample corset dress and skirt ensemble, created in the Summer of 2015. Crafted in multi-panelled cotton bobbinet tulle, lime silk satin binding and corded French lace in a beautiful shade of lilac. Fastens with an unusual 1900s antique busk and front and back lacing. Bra fit cups are made of lightly padded foam, joining at the centre front with a hook and eye with an adjustable signature bra band. The corset body has been appliquéd by hand with hand-cut French lace. Binding has been hand sewn for an invisible exterior finish. Bone channels and waist tape are constructed from cotton twill tape, encasing a combination of spiral and flat steel bones. The matching skirt has been constructed from French lace, using the scallop design along a pointed hem. The skirt has been subtly boned throughout with plastic boning and underwire channels for extra flounce, with hand embroidered flossing at the bottom of each channel. A waist band of black elastic gives a comfortable stretch fit. This ensemble is sold as one piece, including the corset dress and the skirt.
The corset has a closed waist of 22" and is best suited for a UK 10. The cups are best suited for sizes 30D/32C/34B. The skirt is best suited to a UK 10.
Please note that due to the flexible and lightweight nature of bobbinet, this garment is not suitable for tightlacing, but is an occasionwear piece only.
This ensemble has been worn for a handful of photoshoots but is otherwise in excellent condition.
Specialist dry clean only.
