SALE - Was £19.00, now £12.00

This beautiful upcycled piece has been re-vamped with gorgeous gothic lolita style vintage buttons, each featuring an etched royal crown.

The many tiers of black cotton have been elegantly ruched up, and the buttons accent the tip of each drape. Can be worn, burlesque - style, gathered up further with ribbons to show off a fine pair of patterned tights, on its own, or also as a bustled overskirt for a Steampunk look. The lowest hem point is about knee-length, (so do not fret for your modesty - I was careful not to pin these drapes TOO high at the back!).

I only use good quality materials when upcycling garments! I use pieces that are properly constructed, made from durable fabrics, and either have no flaws (apart from being dead boring!) or have only flaws that will be removed during customization (e.g removing a torn hem to replace with a new professional hem and lace trim), to give an imperfect garment a new lease of life! The low price reflects only that it takes less time to re-vamp than to make from scratch.

Size S (UK 8-10)
