These cotton twill bodices are available in Hunter Green, Navy and Burgundy. I've been carrying these bodices to sell at Renaissance Fairs where they have been displayed on a clothing rack. The encased boning is on both sides of the grommets to give plenty of support and lift even for women who are gifted.
The Navy and a few of the other colors bodices are slightly different. I got them later and the shoulders on these had grommets in them as well to be able to adjust the bodice for a better fit. I'm short waisted and with shoulder adjustments I can tighten up the bodice to fit my body style while those with longer waists can let them out. These cost a bit more because of the extra work and materials involved. The bodices with shoulder ties are $85 while the ones without are $75.00. If you need one in a different color, style or size please let me know and I can usually get them for you but delivery is longer.
This listing is available in several sizes. Please measure your waist at your natural waist above your belly button not the more modern lower waist. The first number is with the bodice closed completely and the second is when you let it gap a bit which is an authentic way to wear a bodice. I do recommend that those ladies whose chest measurement is a lot larger than the waist that you choose a size up from your waist measurement for a more comfortable fit. If you don't see your size listed please contact me and I can order in whatever size you need. Sizes are available from a 24" Waist up to 60 inches.
Machine wash cool, tumble dry on delicate or hang to dry. It should be worn with a chemise or a shirt underneath and works well with the Renaissance petticoat skirt or pants all of which are listed in my store.

Yes, I made the snoods worn by Alyssa Milano on Charmed. The listing in my shop for a Net Beaded Snood Standard length is the same style that I made for the show. A replica of the Burgundy Snood she wore is the first one you'll see on that listing.
Yes, I have made several different snoods over the years for DMGM Creative Costuming with Disney, Florida. They are worn by Cinderella's dancers in the daily parade as well as several others have appeared in different productions for Disney as well as for shows on the Disney cruise ships.
The length of a snood depends on the thickness and length of ones own hair. If you have fine or average thickness of hair the standard length will work fine. My hair is average and just past the middle of my back and I wear the 8" length. I like having it up off of my back and level with my shoulders. If you'd like it to hang longer or you have longer and/or thicker hair you should go with a longer snood. I would also caution on the Net pattern that if one has very fine or layered hair you might want to choose another pattern. Since the openings are larger on this snood that type of hair may poke through the openings and look messy. A snood with smaller openings works better for ladies with fine hair.
All snoods and bun covers are made to order so please allow 2-4 weeks for delivery of those items. Hats and Renaissance Garb that I sell are in stock and ship out as soon as order is received and processed, taking no more than 2 business days.
