We’ve had quite a few Etsy-lingerie-finds on The Lingerie Post before (mostly thanks to Kelly, who has a knack for these things), and today – we have another one!
Louise Black has been selling her breathtaking custom corsets (and other special high-end items) online since the year 2000 – and she’s still adding designs to her Etsy shop every once in a while, which means her spot on TLP is well-deserved if you ask me…
Below — my 3 favorite pieces from her Etsy Boutique.
Victorian Anatomical Steampunk Cameo Corset
“The lace trimmed cameo corset is a Louise Black signature item and has been around since 2004. It is constructed from 7 panels of black twill canvas. It’s reinforced with an additional layer of heavy weight canvas for even more cinching power. The entire piece is lined in a decorative cotton layer. The edges and seams are encased in bias tape & lace. This sturdy, under-bust style is more of a decorative corset (not for severe waist reduction/ training), but it will pull in your waist a couple inches and give your mid-section a waspy, hour glass appearance” link
Court Jester Circus Neck Ruff Choker
“This whimsical neck adornment is made from ruffled Victorian cotton lace backed with wide pink satin ribbon. I’ve sewn a second layer of vintage metallic lace down the center front and topped with with hand-sewn antique glass pearls. The center piece is a hand-cut tattered rose made from silk chiffon and pink/gold 20’s metallic lace. I’ve sewn an art deco brooch to the center and trimmed the flower with 20’s silver bugle bead fringe.” link
Marionette Inspired Black Silk Party Dress
The black silk dupioni was all hand pleated by Louise Black, and have been angled chevron style at each seam. The double ruffled collar has been interfaced into the neckline so it stands up high around the neck rather than flopping down (though if you prefer this look, the collar can be pushed down). It is fully lined in satin, has an invisible bottom hem, zips up at the side, and closes down the back with 30 glass ball buttons. The gathered cap sleeves are lined with black and white striped satin and the waist belt is hand beaded. link
Prices for these breathtaking unique creations are much lower than what you’d expect. For example — that corset on number one is for sale at under $150. That’s not bad, is it? Check out her complete shop right here on Etsy!
