These corsets are pure inspiration. They are designed to mix and match with an existing wardrobe and go wonderfully with the new Decadence SqueakyMonkey blouses, micro petticoats, micro skirts and they also look amazing over the Melancholy series dresses. The corset is a lovely grey color with grey top stitching on all of the seams. The back is amazing! 10 eyelets go 3/4 of the way down the corset to leave room for a “tulip flare”. Depending on what you are layering it over, you can only lace up 8 eyelets (the super flared short micro petticoats) or you can lace up all of the eyelets to go over a less billowy dress or skirt. The neckline of the corset has handsewn tiny black eyelash trim and the bottom of the petticoat has handsewn lovely cotton imported Japanese lace.
