Reserved listing with expedited shipping.
All items in my shop are handmade in England!
Handmade, completely unique. Fully steel boned corset. Various materials (recycled wherever possible!) (The materials used in the dress photographed include; recycled cotton bedding, recycled scarves and recycled leather upholstery samples.)
A version of this design was featured in 'Rock 'n' Roll bride' (thank you, Sadie!!)
This listing is for made-to-order Steampunk wedding/ prom dress. No 2 are exactly identical, (The dresses photographed are examples) each one is an individual item of wearable art, I often use vintage and recycled materials in my work, so where this applies, identical fabric may not be found, where identical fabric cannot be used, I will source alternatives/ make to your design specifics. To discuss your specific design ideas and requirements just get in touch 🙂 The shoulder strap (main image) is optional, but is not adjustable, and is very difficult to create to the correct length without measuring in person, so please let me know when ordering if you would like the shoulder strap, or would prefer no strap/ a different kind of strap (I can make a belt style strap instead, which is adjustable, if preferred. Contact me if you'd like me to send a picture of the belt style strap).
PLEASE READ MY SHOP POLICIES SECTION CAREFULLY **BEFORE** ORDERING ANYTHING, MY POLICIES COVER A FEW FAQ's, LARGER SIZES, (I do make plus size items, but you must contact me 1st with your size to discuss!!) THE POSTAGE COSTS, PRODUCTION TIMES, REFUND/RETURNS, ETC, AND I NEED YOU TO ACCEPT THESE POLICIES IN ORDER FOR ME TO WORK WITH YOU! THANK YOU 🙂 🙂

All of my bridal wear is professionally custom handmade to YOUR measurements, and no 2 are identical. You get a UNIQUE, NEW dress, professionally CUSTOM made FOR YOU!!
If you are interested in ordering a corset, note that all of my made to measure corsets are made with width measurements AND length measurements, not just waist size. So I can cater for a multitude of shapes, sizes and proportions, as well as any design specifications. Just get in touch to discuss! :)Most of my designs are custom designed for the customer, and whilst I may create a smilar style, I promise never to make 2 the same. I want every item I make to be unique,and I want my customers to have something that is theirs, and theirs alone.
The construction process;
I design and draft a pattern, alter the pattern to any specific custom requests and I source material. My steel corsets all consist of three layers; a cotton lining, a coutil middle layer (this is a non stretchy, rigid corset middle, and the outer layer of fabric unique to each design (finer fabrics are mounted on an additional coutil layer when necessary). The corsets have 10 spiral steel bones, and 4 flat steel bones, always at least 7mm wide, and, where used, a steel centre front busk and a minimum 1" wide waist stay. All bones are capped, and the ensemble is double stitched on all seams, and top stitched. Bias binding is sewn down by hand to ensure an even, professional result.
Eyelets are fixed in with washers to make them extra secure, this is done with a mechanical press. And then I make and attach modesty panels and any embellishments.Some of my shipping costs may seem high, this is because they are for bulky items. I over estimate shipping, and ALWAYS refund any shipping overpaid, I'm very honest- I do this to make sure I'm covered! If shipping comes to less than charged I will reimburse, I always do. If you'd like to discuss alternative shipping methods, just get in touch .Courier is a cheaper up front option, but always incurs customs charges, so it often works out more expensive for customer than the method I use (Royal mail/ parcelforce) which often avoids customs charges (but not always!)
