Vintage 1970s Burgundy Leather & Velvet Corset Belt
Rare and wonderful late 1970s corset-style lace-up belt featuring a wide construction, suede leather front and gathered velvet back. Pairs perfectly with your flowing Gunne Sax gowns or an oversized tunic and leggings. Lace-up closure at front, unlined.
MEASUREMENTS: (taken with garment lying flat; waist doubled for your convenience) →waist: 25 - 26 inches; could go a bit larger if you're okay with a larger gap where the laces cross →width: 5.25 inches
ESTIMATED SIZE: X-Small to Small
CONDITION: Good vintage condition. This piece appears to be homemade and well-loved. There's some wear to the leather seams, as pictured, and some homemade details like uneven stitching visible under close inspection. Additionally, this belt came to me with no corset laces. I'd normally replace them with true vintage corset laces, but due to the shutdown, I can't reach my source. I've added a thin black grosgrain ribbon, and it's wearable as-is, but I do think this corset would function better with a thicker corset lace. Reflected in price! Please keep in mind this is a vintage garment, which means minor signs of wear are to be expected. Any significant flaws are always noted in the description. All garments are mended, cleaned and ready to wear unless otherwise noted.
COLOR: Reddish suede, deep burgundy velvet,
MORE INFORMATION: No maker or contents labels; appears homemade. Appears to be made of suede leather and velvet. Specialist leather care only.
