Bespoke Made to Measure Corsets

The Sewing Lab has extensive experience in bespoke custom made corsetry. These can be boudoir corsets customised to your matching lingerie, or worn as a fashion item with a pair of killer heels for a night out. We also cater for the cos-play, steampunk and gothic wearers of these beautiful items.

Years of our experience and skill is put into every step of your corset’s creation. We have range of styles and depending on your budget we find a creation that is perfect for you.

Every commission begins with a discussion about your aesthetic vision and we send you a detailed measuring chart and a quote for the work we have discussed. Depending on your corset and your geographical location we are happy to arrange a fitting for a toile to ensure that it fits perfectly, or we will ship your toille to you.                                                         

These corsets were recently made for a client for her Edinburgh fringe show

 

We offer several styles ~ but we look forward to the challenge of creating something new for our clients.

We are also happy to work with steampunk, gothic and cos-play clients for your specific requirements and fabrics.  For a true Victoriana look we can also make a lace/cotton chemise, a Victorian bustle or lace undergarments & tops.

 

Underbust Corsets

An underbust corset is perfect for creating curves that retains a natural bust line

We currently have 2 styles :

The Seductressthis a 12 panel corset is constructed with a beautiful curved edge to accentuate your bust and hips

The Riding Corset – this pattern is created by us from an original 1890’s Edwardian riding corset. It is 14 panel corset with a deep ‘V’ at the top and bottom

 

Overbust Corsets

The overbust corset gives the ultimate shape and produces the perfect hourglass figure.

We currently have 2 styles :

The Victorian ~ This is a 12 panel classic overbust style with vertical seams sweeping down the body to elongate and enhance your figure and works beautifully with sizes up to a D-cup

The Marilyn ~ This is a 12 panel cupped overbust corset ~ the separate cups create extra support and lift ~ this can be worn on petite figures all the way up to the fuller figures to create a natural looking bust line

 

Waspies

The petite appearance of a waspie belies a powerful force for waist reduction.

Our waspies are based on our 12 & 14 panel underbust patterns, so they are perfectly equipped to flow around your curves with ease. They are cut with a high hip line and low rib line

These corsets can be decorative in coutil, or made in a sheer mesh as part of a lingerie look.

 

Our Corset Construction

We pride ourselves in offering corsets for every price point.

There are aspects that you may want to upgrade such as extra silk ruffles, garters, appliques or hand sewn flossing.

Or if you are on a budget we can create your design as a single layer corset – but whatever your price point every corset will be made to the highest standards.
