Black silk organza flatlined with taffetta gives this bodice an old world feel. The yards and yards of fine tulle ruffles combined with tulle puffed sleeves give the costume fluff and a fairy tale feel.
This was one of those rare times when I tried to follow a pre existing pattern by the letter. Except that I just added the ruffle to the face of the skirt in a non period way. Couldnt help myself! I am capable, though, of creating historicly accurate clothing - I love doing the research!
