Diabolical Nightjar




The Diabolical Nightjar, is aristocratically alternative, with its exquisitely rich green, ruched fabric, and tastefully placed, laced D-rings on the side. The asymmetrical slanted top line is edged in black lace, it’s off center angle is detailed with soft, black, breezy feathers, and a simple black bow.

The matching paired skirt is the Conquered Lorikeet.

Nightjar Design Description

The Nightjar is an asymmetrical top line; that has one side sitting higher than the other. The right side sits above the middle of the breast, which then plunges straight down a couple inches and then angles back over to the other breast in a straight line. This Corset design is both elegant and edgy.

About Birdcage Corsets

Every corset is hand-made with steel boning, constructed of three layers of fabric for durability, and can be altered to your specifications.  All corsets can be made shorter or longer, the bottoms pointed into deep Vs or gentle curves. The backs can be straight, curved or pointed – it’s entirely to your preference. We can work with you to make something that you’ve had in mind or saw somewhere and thought, “Wow! I want that!”  All corset designs can be tailored to your personal style: Alty, Pin-up, Steam Punk, Goth, Elegant, Country…you name it.

Birdcage Corsets don’t often incorporate front busks as we find we don’t like the way they alter the front and limit creative options. We also find that they are a pain to close, and most corsets start coming apart there from all the wear and tear.  But if you would like a busk, we’re happy to put one in for you.

Every piece on the site is original; the patterns shown are a template for you. You’re more than welcome to order any product shown, but be aware that we will not be able to exactly recreate it. We do not purchase bolts of fabric or accessories to mass produce any of the designs. The idea behind a custom ordered piece is that it is original. You’re the only person who will be walking around in your outfit. No more awkward moments at events!  We encourage you to choose your favorite color and style and we will work with you to create a piece tailored only for you.
