More from the Love-ly Corset line

This very fun corset can be worn to adorn a plain shirt or wear alone for evening dress.
Red with black lace overlay, laces up the back - the picture is a little bright because of the flash.  Very beautiful fabric, must see in person to appreciate it!
sizes down to 32" up to 42"
I only make corsets with the lace up option if the client asks for them.  This one has a lace up for demo purposes.

This is unlined, full boning, black "eyelash" detailing around top and bottom.
