One great thing about making your own corset is being able to put the trims anywhere you want.
You can purchase extra ribbon to embellish your skirt or your partners jerkin!
This faux suede corset is perfect for any wench - renaissance or modern! You can wear it to the Renaisance Faire or with your favorite plaid shirt, jeans and cowboy boots. The renaissance girls knew how great a corset made them look even if they couldn't get a velvet one. And just as the waist cincher made the wench look amazing the so it can make you stand out in a crowd to. Wear it to the faire or the modern day pub.
Note: A silver and black applique has been added to this corset at one hip. The kit DOES NOT include the applique
Even a wench should have a choice.
This corset has internal bone casings and black cotton binding along the top and bottom edge.
The Pirate Queen is no shrinking violet though she may like a bit of purple in her corset. She's courageous in all of her endeavors and this is loud and clear in her choice of corset.
This corset is made with striped silk that chevrons to each seam, there is nothing subtle about it and it's a corset that will get the attention that is due to any queen.

The stripes chevron to the seams where it does not matter if they meet as each seam is encased in black satin binding. Imagine adding black fringe or coins. Each corset kit is a base for your to build and then decorate.

Some of us just love to be a "wench" and only a pirate can really say the word "wench" the way it should really sound. So if you're the Pirate Wench type this is the waist cincher for you. In faux leather this waist cincher looks as great with a pirate shirt or chemise and nothing but tights and high boot as it does with a white t.shirt, faded jeans and sandals. You can wear this corset anywhere as it's a perfect accessory for today or yesteryear, for the local pub or for the poop deck.
Coming in Late February 2010
