One of several outfits made with this teal satin brocade
for a teal invasion of Gaskell's ball. Was intended to look
Victorianesque, but more fancy than historical. Use a
small hoopskirt for a fuller look. Dressform was too large so bodice is pinned to it and is smaller.
BodiceTeal synthetic brocade bodice with pink satin pleated bertha, piped in black satin, white ruffled lace on edge of bertha, and white lace on neck edge. Black satin hem trim with white lace. Pink satin bowed belt. Satin puff sleeve with lace overlay tied with ribbons. Articial rose pinned to front.

Bust approx 32.5"
Waist approx 27.5" (waist on skirt 26.5")
