Is made of a rich crimson cotton damask fabric with a subtle woven design. The attached epaulets and peplum are made from the same fabric and are an elegant addition to my standard bodice . It has been embellished with luxurious jacquard trim in the front and back which results in a figure-flattering effect.
The 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!). Rich black cording laces up the front through 14 black grommets. The cording ends are crimped with aiglets for ease of threading and a nice, finished look. It is lined with black canvas, interlined with heavy decor weight interfacing and contains 8 pieces of supportive boning (a combination of spring steel and poly). What does all this mean to you? Superb support and excellent durability while still being reasonably comfortable.
YOUR bust and waist measurements should be at least the same as the Bodice and can be up to 3 inches LARGER. The tighter it’s laced, the more “push up and together” effect you’ll get.
is made the same crimson damask. It is gored to eliminate bulk at the waist (triangular shaped panels rather than rectangular) and has a drawstring waist for the perfect fit. The openings of the split front have been embellished with more of the matching jacquard trim. Serge hemmed to desired length.
Is made with a forepart in a linen rayon blend. The remainder of the underskirt is made with black cotton. Drawstring waist with reinforced openings for the cording. Serge hemmed to desired length.
