For this costume my customer was in need of an outfit inspired by Belle's battle garb worn in the tv show Once Upon A Time.
The original costume looks like this...
The inspired by version is below.
My customer is using her own leather gloves and leggings. (not pictured here)

The undershirt has a fairytale hood and features a low neckline with full sleeves.
I used a very pretty and soft organic hemp fabric for the undershirt because I wanted it to feel magical. This fabric is also perfect for tucking into leggings.
The bodice was created from a very high quality deep wine colored suede fabric edged with dark brown linen and tapestry accents. Lacing up the front allows a custom fit.
I fully lined the bodice with a soft brown linen as well to give it a pretty feel and texture.
The fairytale sleeves are my favorite part of the costume! It gives the whole look a very "Belle" feel. The belt was created from silk, suede, trim and rows of all metal button accents.
Thank you for looking at this Belle Inspired Costume.
