Black & Gold Elizabethan for Sale

The bad thing about losing weight is uber-cool stuff you bought before losing weight is now too big. Tried on the bodice to my black & gold Elizabethan and I am swimming in it. As I don't ever intend to get back where I was sadly I must let this go.

Before anyone suggests it, no it cannot be altered smaller without ruining the embroidery. It's about a size 14+ & adjustable to much larger sizes(laced back bodice to which a modesty panel can be added under the lacing, overskirt has lacing & underskirt has hook & slide); looking for the measurements now but pretty adjustable. Will measure for seriously interested parties.

EDIT: Measurements!
Please remember the bodice is supposed to be TIGHT & worn as you would a corset as it is boned so you would not wear another corset beneath it! Also you can leave some of the lacing open in the back & add a modesty panel!
Bust 41
Waist 35
Hips are freesized.

This is a gown for ROYALTY. Made from very high quality black cotton velvet and elaborate gold brocade. Heavily embroidered & embellished. The sleeves are wrapped ribbons of velvet which were embroidered and then pearled within an inch of their life. Also has an attached dainty pouch hanging off the back of the bodice made in matching velvet & embroidered in the same designs. Made for someone about 5'6/5'7; I am 5'5 and had to hitch the skirt up pretty high under the bodice to get it to a good length for me.







(Wow, I really hate the above pic but it shows off the amazing sleeves)

Beautiful work! Was it done by one of our Laurels?

No it was not made by an SCA member but a high end Faire Dressmaker.

Ah, Sindra made many Coronation gowns.
Most of my Baronial robes were made by costumers in Stargate (I'd commission then to showcase their skills).

Kajira lost a lot of weight recently too so this might be a little big for her now. But yes, I did post it on FB.
