The Mourning Dove is made of soft, black leather. The front opening is closed with one leather strap and buckle along with black satin lacing. Black lacing up the left side creates asymmetrical, simple detailing; leaving the gorgeous leather to speak for itself. A small cameo at the top right is the only other addition. The overall length of the Morning Dove is long, the front dips low and wraps around over the hips to sit low on the back.
The matching short, pleated skirt is the Little Bee-Eater Skirt.
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.
