Doctor Who Exploding T.A.R.D.I.S. Steel Boned Corset - You Choose Your Corset Style - Custom Sized
This listing is for the corset only. The other items (Ragamuffin Dresses, Bustle Belt, and Mini Cecilia Skirt) may be available in separate listings. =) It's important to note that it is shown worn directly atop a Bustle Belt in the photos. The bustle is not attached and is not included.

I'm trying something new with my custom made corset listings. Since I stock the fabrics and can easily make a particular combo in any corset style, I'm opening up the option right from the custom listing. Simply select the style you'd like from the menu, and I'll let you know upon purchase which measurements I will need for that particular style. Please note that the photo showing all of the corset styles is meant as a style reference ONLY. You are purchasing a corset in the fabrics shown in the other photos and described below.

The corset styles I offer in this combo are:
WASPIE: Shorter-torso option. Maximum side length I can do is 8" (standard patterning is about 7"-7 1/2", upper hip is 3 1/2" below waistline)
UNDERBUST: Basic underbust cut. Maximum side length is 10" (standard patterning is about 9", upper hip is 4 1/2" below waistline)
LONG-LINE UNDERBUST: Higher cut on the ribs and lower at the upper hip. Maximum side length is 12" (standard patterning is around 10", upper hip is 5" below waistline).
SEMI-STRAIGHT NECKLINE OVERBUST: Lower cut across bustline, slightly shorter upper hip than Sweetheart (4" below waist).
SWEETHEART OVERBUST: Curvy bustline, upper hip hits at 4 1/2" below waist.

Every corset I make is built to take a beating. I use only high-end, durable upholstery fabrics. Every corset is reinforced in the inside with a layer of coutil, and further reinforced with heavy duty twill waist tape. All seams are secured with 4 rows of stitching. My work is made to last. =)

This corset will be custom made to fit the buyer. My current wait time before shipment on custom corsets is approximately 4-5 weeks. If you need your corset sooner, please contact me before purchase. I am occasionally able to get things made faster, but you need to ask first to be sure.

Fabric: Patchwork of blue tone on tone striped damask and exploding T.A.R.D.I.S. cotton print
Lining: Coordinating damask of my choosing
Interlining: Cotton coutil (a super-dense, tightly woven fabric made specifically for corsetry)
Trim: Black satin bias
Grommets: Antique Brass, Brass, Matte Black, or Nickel
Lacing: Flat White Heavy Duty Polypropylene Laces
Steel: 22 Pieces (2-1/2" wide flats, 4-1/4" wide flats, 2-1/4" wide double thick English steel flats down the back lacings for extra support, and 16-1/4" wide spirals for both support and curves)
Center Front Style: Solid Front (no front closure. If you want a front closure, you can convo to request the addition. It is $15 for a busk or front lacings on a Waspie, $20 for the other 2 underbust styles, and $25 for the overbust styles.)

Upon purchase, I will send you a detailed list of the measurements and details I will require. I will need this information within 2 weeks of purchase in order to meet the quoted ship date.

There is an approximately 4-5 week wait on all custom made corsets prior to shipment. I ship US orders via Priority Mail w/Delivery Confirmation and Insurance. International orders ship out via 1st Class Mail International. If you'd prefer Priority International, please message me with your country so that I can quote you a price. Priority International usually runs about $30-$40 on items of this weight.

I do try to have an all sales are final policy with custom made garments since they are very individually sized for the buyer. Should you have any problems at all with the fit of your corset, I need to know immediately. I don't issue refunds, but I do want happy customers, so please send me a message with any questions/concerns that you may have. You'll get a quick reply, and I promise I'll work really hard to be sure you're absolutely in love with your clothing!

Please email me with any questions. =) Thanks!
