This beautiful black leather waist cincher is the perfect accessory to wear over your dress, tunic or any piece of clothing you desire. It is made of a 3 oz soft cow leather, firm enough to keep its shape but soft enough that it will mold to your body. Since it is a soft-medium weight leather, it may create natural creases over long time use which adds to the authentic aesthetics. Each cincher is made to order, customized to your measurement. Perfect accessory to your Viking garb, SCA, LARP, Medieval, Renaissance Faire or various reenactment events. Can be incorporated into any woodland witch ensembles or even worn over modern clothing to give it an edgy touch. This listing is only for the cincher and includes a genuine leather cording.
I created a unique shape to this cincher that accents the natural waist and creates an hourglass shape on any figure. The outline of the cincher is edgy and crisp, drawing the eyes and your waist inward. It's the perfect accessory to wear with an oversized outfit as it allows you to wear a loose garment and still have a figure.
Cincher features 12 stainless steel grommets - 6 on each side and is laced up with sturdy leather cording. The laces can be loosened, tightened and removed so the cincher can be slipped on and off easily. Can be worn with laces in the front or back, tucked in or tied in a bow with the cords dangling. There is no boning which allows the cincher to be flexible and comfortable and mold to the shape of your body.
Can be wiped down with a damp rag but is not to be placed in a washer or dryer. Keep in a cool dry place. Leather (like your skin) can get dried out, cracked and warped if not properly cared for. The cincher is designed and sewn by a professional seamstress. All seams are aesthetically and professionally finished. Inside seams are machine stitched, hammered flat and top stitched. The edges are raw and feature a double top stitch design.
Please have measurements specified upon order so I can start on your item right away. Take all measurements tight to the body with no slack in the measuring tape. This specific item is made to fit extremely close to the body and therefore the measurement accuracy is crucial for a proper fit. For visual reference, the model has a size 26" waist. The largest point of the cincher pattern is 8" and the smallest point is 3" wide. The width of the cincher will be the same for most measurements unless it needs to be modified to fit specific measurements. Contact me if you need any help with measurements!
The measurements I need upon order are as follows:
Circumference of natural waist (the smallest part of your waist where the cincher will sit):
Circumference of hips:

Since you are ordering custom made items, there are no refunds after 24 hours of placing your order. All items are custom made so they are final sale and there are no exchanges or returns. Everything is made based on the measurements I am provided by the buyer. I suggest having a qualified person help the buyer with taking their measurements so they are accurate. I change and alter my handmade patterns to custom fit to the measurements I am provided. Therefore I only ship out items if they are correctly made by me, according to the measurements provided to me by the buyer. Because of this I cannot offer to make any adjustments to them afterwards. My formula for proper fit is based on my almost 100% 5 star reviews and customer feedback for over 1,000 garments made. If an item doesn't fit and it was made correctly based off the measurements provided to me by the buyer, the responsibility is of the buyer. If a buyer places an order and does not provide measurements, a refund cannot be issued at a later date. If a buyer places an order for a plus size item and didn’t order the plus size fee required, the responsibility is of the buyers. Therefore no returns, exchanges or refunds will not be possible.
