Pop Antique "Knit Corsets" have the same internal strength and structure (organic cotton canvas lining, waist tape, steel hardware, etc.) but covered with a chic yet cozy knit outer. There are three varations of knit corsets: "Sweater corsets" are available in either a sleek machined knit or beautifully textured bulky hand knit while "t-shirt corsets" have a fashion fabric made from t-shirt like jersey fabric. Feel free to email me to discuss having your favorite t-shirt turned into a stylish corset.
All knit corsets have woven bindings and back bone casings. Bindings may be hidden if you so desire, but the woven back bone casings are a necessity as the knits would not stand up to the abrasion from the lacing.
"Fully Fashioned" machine knit corsets are the cream of the crop. Available in three pattern design styles, jersey, jacquard, or intarsia, each panel is knitted to shape, rather than cut. Each change of yarn or design requires the knitting pattern to be fully recalculated. From the design phase to knitting the panels and attaching them to structured interior, machine knit corsets take two to three times the amount of work as conventional woven corsets. Jersey and jacquard corsets include a silk-lined busk cover; intarsia corsets are only available with closed fronts.
Jersey, striped or solid: add $200 to corset base price
Jacquard patterns: add
Intarsia knit custom graphics: add $500
A bulky ribbed handknit outer creates a stylish corset perfect for crisp days, easy to mix and match with a casual daywear wardrobe.
Pricing TBD but will likely run between pricing for standard styles ($250-$399) and classic jersey ($200 upgrade). Limited silhouettes available, closed front standard as shown above.
T-shirt corsets have a sleek jersey outer, and can in fact be made from upcycled t-shirts. Samples and costing are still in progress. Expect stock fabrics to be primarily organic cotton, including original prints, and pricing will not vary significantly from the standard styles.
Prices are subject to change at any time. Sales tax will be applied to orders within California.
