Explore the dark side of Steampunk with this beautiful costume. It’s a corset dress in a cute and trendy Steamy-Goth style. Its pleated mini skirt front will make your legs look oh so long and shapely. The skirt’s back is full enough to fit a full bustle petticoat underneath, and the hem is trimmed in ruffled black lace for extra sass.
This look is mostly ready-to-ship in sizes Small through Large. If you have an event that’s coming soon, please contact me and send your measurements for an exact shipping timeframe. All other sizes will be made-to-order, which takes about 6 to 8 weeks.
The photos show the look with a fashion corset – which comes in size S through XL. (Fashion corset sizes run small, please see size charts). Or, you can purchase this with a top quality steel boned corset in the same style – the “Buckles” style in this listing in my shop.
This set includes my uber-versatile vintage diva skirt, which can be worn in many ways for many different looks. Here are a few of the possibilities. Photos 2-4 also show items from my collection of handmade “underthings”!
I make my skirts and sleeves, but I don’t make corsets, so I have different size charts for each. With this look, the sleeves are attached directly to the corset, and the attachment point is customized based on your exact size and shape. Because of the customization, this item cannot be returned! Please include your measurements when you check out, so I can be sure I’m crafting your look correctly.

Real corsets require breaking in – your first time wearing them should not be the day of your special event! Instead, you’ll want to put your corset on for just a few hours at a time – both to get your body used to the feeling, and to start the process of the corset itself molding to your form. You’ll start by lacing the corset loosely – so that the modesty panel in back barely touches below the lacing. It may take several days of breaking in before you’re able to comfortably wear your corset all day long.
My fashion corsets are steel boned, but they do not reduce your waist size. So they do not require a breaking in period, and can be worn for the first time on the day of your special event.
