A Skeletons in the Closet corset is made with the best materials available.
The construction of a corset starts with the drafting of a good pattern. A well fitted corset is drafted to your measurements. A corset should smooth your curves, chinch your waist, but should never be uncomfortable. Therefore we draft all patterns from scratch. We specialise in both modern corsetry shapes aswell as the historical patterning.
After creating the pattern we move on to the construction of a corset. A Skeletons in the Closet corset is always made out of a non-stretch material. Usually coutil, a material specifically made for corsetry, or a corsetry mesh if we are looking for more of a boudoir look. A corset has internal or external boning casings. The boning is a mix of spiral and flat steels. The corset has a waist tape to help to keep the waist in check.
The binding is hand finished for a smooth look, and we often use a soft cotton to line the corset. We obsess over little details, like properly pressed seams and smooth curves, making a Skeletons in the Closet corset almost a piece or art.
