I Love this Corset style mini dress so much If it was a bit smaller I would keep it for Myself !

This would be prefect for sooooo many Halloween costume -Fairy , woodland sprite ,forest Nymph , Pixie , Poison Ivy , leaf goddess , camo princess , swamp fairy , Moss fairy / Zombie swamp zombie and much more

The bodice is super this and sturdy ! Fully lined in Egyptian cotton and quilted in a style inspired By Gibbous designs with 2 rows of boning and strong canvas eyellets for lacing . Layers and layers of scrappy lace and tattered net along with remnants of various green and Earth tone fabrics , bits and pieces of many treasured items even a beautiful silk screened wing and tiny gold leaf charms all stitched together to create the mossy tree bark like effect of this  bodice . The whole thing is finished off with an attached leaf skirt , Many colors and patterns of different green silk/ acetate leaves ombre down to golden fall harvest leaves at the bottom . Two under layers of super soft fabric for comfort !

The bodice is a bit big on Me pictured and would be even more flattering on a larger frame

 This is not a " waist cinching " corset . This is a fashion corset -style top. Slightly structured but still comfortable and flexible .

 Thanks so much for looking
 Have a great night/ day

Quite lovely. I enjoy seeing costumes on this site. Wonderful job, and the fitting of it seems perfect for your figure. I hope you enjoy wearing it!


NEW REQUEST: Need quilting fabric with ONLY purple, grey, green. Solids or Prints in any combination/shades, but NO OTHER COLORS ALLOWED. HELP! They are hard to find.
