This garment was built for a theatrical production of Shakespeare’s MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING set in 1898. It is expertly constructed, very sturdy, and designed and built by theatre professionals. The one-piece garment is fashioned out of a charming pale yellow cotton with a floral motif in shades of pale pink, fuchsia, white, and green and is trimmed in ivory lace at the neck, wrists, and skirt bottom. The bodice is gathered in the front and closes up the back with seven industrial hooks and eyes. Seven pearly white buttons are sewn on over the hooks and eyes but are purely decorative. The fitted sleeves feature a puffed shoulder, gathering at the upper arm and underarm gussets for an expert fit. The skirt falls in five panels (one center front, two at the center left and right, and two in the back) and is made to be worn over a full petticoat (not included). The entire garment is flat-lined in muslin. This is perfect for Halloween or costume parties!
