The second 17th century bodice I have made! Worn a few times, but still in respectable condition.
features: *made in red wool, with cotton lining, * decorative open sleeves, with panes draped over the shoulder rolls *soft, unboned, so will need to be worn over a pair of stays or a bodiced petticoat. *buttons in front with cloth covered buttos, handstitched buttoholes * natural/slightly higher waist *measurements - chest 38", waist 30, * has points at the waist as I also used it as a man's doublet when i was doing rapier fighting shows - so can be used as a bloke's item too! *no visible machine stitching, complete hand finish
collar and skirts etc not included
