Contemporary Classic? A contemporary classic is something that could have been worn in a previous time period but fit's into a contemporary wardrobe to. Think basic black waist cincher. Perfect accessory for Victorian re-enactment, Steampunk events, or with your grey pencil skirt and white blouse, black turtle neck maxi dress! Make one up and then try it on with anything in your wardrobe...or wear it alone with nothing but a bra and panties.
Black Matte Satin Corset
The most practical corset you could ever own! A definite investment as it's more versatile than a "little black dress" and more cost effective - think how muc more wear you'll get out of this and how much less it costs. This is one corset that every woman should own.
Black matte satin, no trim no frou frou, just that classic black! Please NOTE: the photos above do not exactly represent the kit - all corset kits have a "V" front which means they are pointed at the center front. The above corsets are Farthingales Corsets but are not currently available in kit form.
Black Suede Corset
Black suede, this is also listed under "Pirate Wench" but it's so versatile it can be worn for gothic, vampire, club or at the office! It's not what you wear - it's how you wear it!

This photo shows a silver and black applieque on the hip of the corset. The applique is NOT included in the kit.
Silk! Who doesn't love silk, the rich colours the sheen. (No, I didn't spell colour wrong...I'm Canadian..so it's colour.) Currenly all of these kits are cut from duoppioni...now that - I may have spelt wrong...but who really knows.
Duoppioni is often "shot" which means there are two colours of threads in the weaving. For example a red silk may be "shot" with a purple thread so that you get a purplish hue visible when the fabric moves. Not all silk is shot but where it is we indicate it by stating the primary colour first and shot colour second.
NOTE:Dye lots vary as does colour on a compute screen. The colour you see is not going to be exactly what you get.
