We made this outfit for a customer in Baltimore who wanted something unique to wear to her brother’s wedding.
The corset top is made from a wool herringbone tweed in blues and greys. It is completely structured and shaped.
The skirt is made from 100% silk duchess with wide pleats.
The whole outfit feels completely fifties; but like all of the retro pieces that we make, it is modern enough in fit and details to look exactly right for wearing to a wedding or party today.
After sketching several different options for her, the customer decided that she had to have sleeves feeling that this look would be more flattering. But this style would look amazing without the sleeves as well.
We are more than a tailoring or alteration shop….
We can design and make and original pattern for almost anything imaginable.
So if you are looking for something that is impossible to find anywhere, just contact us and we will send you some sketches and swatches and let you know how much it will cost to have made.
For certain items (like this set, with a corset) we offer a full couture muslin fitting. This entails having us make a complete mock-up of the outfit from rough cotton. We mail this to you for feedback and pictures, thereby assuring a perfect fit for the final garment.
Located in Denver, Colorado, we make clothing for customers all over the world.
