Sheri Jurnecka, a local attorney, is ROMANTASY's senior corset maker working with our clients since about 1992! You will be hard pressed to find anyone on the web with as much corset-making experience as Sheri, producing such a variety of designs with a comfortable fit. Expert at fitting full-figured clients, Sheri also delights in working with brides (see her Bridal Collection).

Sheri is past Events Coordinator of the Greater Bay Area Costumers' Guild and a current active member. She has been making costumes since she was a teenager. She learned to make corsets as undergarments for her costumes, but her present interest is developing in the direction of fanciful corsets as a basis for building evening wear or imaginative costumes. Please inquire about original costume designs or Sheri's historical and fantasy costumes, posture collars, and gauntlets to coordinate with your corset.

She specializes in unusual patterned and metallic leathers and PVC. You can see Sheri modeling her own red and green metallic leather flame Elizabeth corset and her imaginative "Russian Princess" overbust corset ensemble. Her technique in leather is superb.

Sheri will mirror-match special patterns in fabric for a dramatic look.

18th Century Corset

This corset can be worn much like a vest or tank top because it has shoulder straps and covers the bust a la "Dangerous Liasons" style. It provides a very flat vertical profile, pushing the bust upwards.

The second photo is of the same style with matching full skirt, worn by ROMANTASY staffer, Liz. Photo three shows Sheri in a leopard and black patent " Elizabeth" Corset.

Waist Cincher

(Front-laced only)
This corset is appropriate as a belt over a dress, or for beginning waist training. It can also effectively be worn when back laced, as a cummerbund corset by men.

All corsets are produced in polysatin, with a modest upcharge for higher-quality cotton backed satin or brocade, fully lined in cotton twill, flat or spiral boned with 11-13 bones per side (double boning), are grommeted in silver, brass or black, and unless style indicates otherwise are laced in back with sturdy flat lacing and include a front busk. Excluding the Cincher, corsets come with a boned back lacing protector. Overbust styles include a fitting in the Bay Area, and for an additional fee, underbust styles may request a fitting. Additional fittings may be necessary at a modest additional fee. Some pattern variations, such as to accommodate for scoliosis or add a unique feature may require a patterning fee. Customer fabric may be provided with advance approval, however there is no fabric credit provided, and occasionally there will be an additional charge for extra lining or interfacing, mirror-matching of patterns, or special sewing techniques required.
