This costume was a project designed and created for a customer who was looking for a flattering Tia Dalma Inspired dress in a plus size. Some of the details and fabric prints were scaled up to provide a lovely look to the costume.
My other Tia Dalma Inspired costumes can be viewed on the gallery or my recent creation is here
Costume includes corset, beaded belt, ornate skirt and detailed over dress. All fabrics have been aged and dyed (Sadly my camera did not capture the true depth of the dyed colors)
Two rows of shells were added to achieve a more hourglass shape. This detail can be seen the photo above.
Lots of antique lace and vintage fabrics were used to create a rich textured costume.
