Velvet Gown with Two Bodices, Headpiece!

This gown is made from old cotton drapery velvet in plum and forest green. Bodice one is 17th century, with white lace, green embossed velvet stomacher w/ faux pearl beaded appliqué, and antique silver trim. It has plastic boning and a push-up pad.

Bodice two is 16th cent, with vintage gold braid trim. No boning, you will need a foundation garment like a corset. Sleeves puffs have net for stiffening, but are unlined (I didn't have time to finish it before I wore it!)

Both bodices tie to the skirt with gold-tipped ties, and both lace up the back.

The headpiece is for 16th century, sits easily on the head, with a metallic gold bag for your hair. Click thumbnail for more pics.

Approx. size 14. Skirt is 45" long, waist 32".  Email any questions.
