This blog post is one I wrote months ago and forgot to schedule. Since it wasn’t recently written my measurements mentioned are not my current measurements, but the information regarding the fit of the top and sizing apply to my size at the time so all the advice on that subject still holds true.
I only have a couple of vintage style bustier tops, both by Pinup Girl Clothing. Those bustiers have a frill bust detail and adjustable fit due to the button closure of the back. I love them but have been searching for a plainer bustier with a more traditional sweetheart shaped bust line and a folded collar style trim to the bust. That’s when I found Fables by Barrie.
The Scarlett bustier is a classic vintage styled bustier top featuring a sweetheart neckline and a darted and seamed bodice in cotton sateen, my favourite fabric finish for a versatile look. It’s a lovely piece so I wish I had better pictures for you, but after another wet washed weekend it meant taking pictures once more in my insufficient kitchen-cum-studio set up.
