Today I have a costume to share with you that was inspired by my Tia Dalma costumes, but in a green and blue color scheme. With a selection of fabrics chosen to represent the sea and an assortment of vintage trims this gown was created.
The costume consists of a fully boned corset, detailed skirt, overdress and beaded belt.
For the belt we used a range of beads, shells and other vintage findings.
The fabric I used for the Over Dress has a lovely colonial inspired print on it of swirled roses and flowers. I accented it with handyed tassles and a stone gray fish net.
You can see touches of vintage lace on the lower sleeves.
The Corset is a deep blue and accented with a selection of fabrics used throughout the costume. Back laces up with green eyelets.
The hem of the skirt is trimmed with a sheer dark green chiffon and completely underlined with seaweed green linen. Gives a nice weight to the skirt when it is just worn with the corset.
