CUSTOM SIZED RENAISSANCE BODICE AND SKIRT ENSEMBLE INCLUDES A REVERSIBLE BODICE AND TWO SKIRTS!

The Bodice
The first side is made with a drop-dead gorgeous whimsical tapestry fabric which a woven design in shades of crimson, blue, black and gold. It reverses to a high quality textured black suede fabric. Black cording laces up the front through 14 grommets and at the shoulders through 8 more grommets. The cording ends are crimped with aiglets for ease of threading and a nice, finished look.

This very sturdy bodice is designed to achieve the period-correct conical figure (no darts or princess seams) by pressing the chest and stomach flat and squeezing the bosom up above the neckline. (Unfortunately, my dress form can’t “squish”, but hopefully you get the idea!). It has 8 pieces of supportive boning (a combination of spring steel, spiral steel and heavy poly…not that bridal stuff) and is interlined with heavy weight interfacing. What does all this mean to you? Superb support, comfort and excellent durability for many years of wear.

The tighter the fit, the more “push up” and “cinching” effect achieved.

The Cotton Skirt
Is made with four full yards of black 100% cotton fabric in a cool, comfortable weight (not a poly/cotton blend which has a distinct synthetic sheen in the sunlight). It has a drawstring waist for the perfect fit. (I prefer drawstring to elastic in the skirts of my own costumes since they can be worn very tightly under a gown or bodice without riding down.) Circumference is a full 144″. Serge hemmed to desired length up to 43 inches.

The Crinkle Gauze Skirt
Is full and flowing. It’s made with 100% cotton crinkle gauze in lipstick red. (Slightly brighter than shown in the photos.) It has a drawstring waist for the perfect fit. (I prefer drawstring to elastic in the skirts of my own costumes since they can be worn very tightly under a gown or bodice without riding down.) Circumference is a full 144″. Serge hemmed to desired length up to 43 inches.

My normal lead time is 2-3 weeks. If you have a deadline, please convo me prior to purchasing to confirm your timeframe can be met.

THE BELT, MUG STRAP, MUG AND CHEMISE BLOUSE ARE NOT INCLUDED BUT ARE AVAILABLE FOR SALE SEPARATELY IN MY ETSY STORE.
