Well look no further!
This steampunk 5 piece ensemble includes: corset, caplet, bustle, bloomers and petticoat.
The Corset is made in a diamond pattern bronze brocade silk, and trimmed at the neckline with vintage hand tatted lace. (It almost killed our designer to cut the lace to fit-- we both agreed it was for a good cause!) The center front neckline has a working latch hook and eye mechanism. The corset closes in the front with a traditional spoon busk closure which we hand painted bronze to match the ensemble.
The Bustle is made of a loosely woven, sturdy see through linen mesh, dyed a golden bronze. Steel boning makes it hold its shape. We finished the bottom hem with box pleated a raw silk stripe ruffle. The same stripe fabric is used in the side panels. The bustle and the corset are tied together with a brown leather shaped belt with double buckles. Both the belt and the bustle are trimmed with clock gears. (Go to www.periodcorsets.blogspot.com for the making of the gears for this special ensemble!)
The tailored chocolate brown dupioni silk caplet’s three tiers are cut on the bias and fastened together at the stand collar neckline with a bronze chain. The edge of each tier and collar are trimmed with a ¼” cotton lace.
The Bustle Petticoat as you can see in the inset is made of 100% Gold Shantung silk. It can be worn over the bustle or without.
The bloomers are made of an ecru cotton eyelet with an adjustable waist.
