We've recently received samples from two of our manufacturers; 5 new coutils and new lacing bones. The lacing bones were not quite right another sample is being made. I'll test them when they arrive and post the info here.
The new coutils include two vintage blue/grey ones - one is the same very fine herrringbone we stock in white, beige and black and the other is a matte satin. They match each other so would make an incredible double layer coutil corset - strong and beautiful.
The other three coutils are all brocades; black with deep red roses, black with deep red dots and a very pale lavender rose patterned brocade coutil.
I'm also waiting on "bra cup" samples and hope we'll be able to stock two different shapes in both black and beige but the samples have not yet arrived so time will tell. They could be used for bra making but we'll demonstrate how to cover them on the "tips n tricks" section of our web site.
