Bronze and Gold full view by ladylucrezia Bronze and Gold full view by ladylucrezia
Tada!!! Isn't it so frickin' awesome?!?! This was the inspiration and basis for this outfit: [link] . For more info about the process of making this ensemble, go here: [link]

The coat, corset, breeches, sash, and headscarf (and the decoration on the hat) were all done by me. The coat borrowed the back and side-back pieces of Simplicity #4900, the sleeves were altered from Butterick #3894, the front pieces, skirting, and collar were all drafted/designed by me (yay mockups, but BOO to mockups without a dress form!). The coat closes up the front with gold "chariot" clasps. The corset was entirely my design and laces up the back. Fabrics were gold-marigold-bronze paisley satin brocade (lined in toffee colored broadcloth), brown/bronze chenille upholstery (lined in toffee colored cotton duck), the trim on the coat was brown gimp braid, and the corset used brown double-fold bias along the top. The buttons are nice gold and pearl ones I've had around for a while. For the breeches, they were made from Butterick #6884, only lengthened. I was going to make the breeches end in 2-3" cuffs, but it was around 3 AM the day of Feast, so I just made elastic cuffs for the time being. I'll change that later. The breeches were made from toffee colored moleskin. Very comfy outfit, quite breatheable, and I made the corset so well, I didn't have to adjust the lacing even after I ate tons for dinner at the Feast, lol! Yay for no corset trauma! XD

Other parts of the outfit. The sash was made of this nifty Idontknowhowtoclassifyit fabric in a scale-like pattern that I found at Walmart, and the head scarf was made from a triangle of the coat lining fabric. The chemise was not meant for this outfit, but since I didn't have time to make a new, less poofy one, I had to use this (it's a satin chemise made from Simplicity #9966, sewn by my friend ). The hat was a blank hat purchased from Halloween USA, then trimmed and pinned up with buttons turned into brooches, in this case, using gold trim and gold-black velvet "x" buttons. The earrings were a gift that came with purchasing a gold coin belt at Gilkeyshire Faire last year, I made all the cute hair bead strands and the choker, and the necklace (which is actually upside down...oops) was purchased at JCPenny. I've had some people ask where I got my pocketwatch (which can kinda be seen hanging on the belt). I found it 2 years ago at a Walmart :D Yaaay, Walmart!

If you have other questions about the outfit, ask away :D The outfit was definately a hit at Feast, and I can't wait to wear it again to Pirate weekends at Faire :boogie: And to see POTC 2 :D!!

I need to join the Privateer's guild this year :3

Amazingly awesome outfit. I <3 female pirate costumes that aren't omg revealing. Also, a bit of a side note, I think i know where this was taken, it looks really familiar to a town not too far from me. 80

I haven't done commissions yet because I only know how to make garments for myself. I still have to learn how to make things for others. Sorry :(

Sweet! Man, I really do need to make a point to visit devart more during the school year, don't I? ^^;;; This is delightful, a great blend between classy and rougish (though I must say, you always seem to look classy)

And making a good corset is so hard! Major Kudos to you. My tudor corset still needs to be gromited for lacing in the back. I lost weight, so it keeps sliding up into my armpits, since my hips are so wide, and I made it with fully boned skirt tabs ;.;

I can't wait to see your next project!

:iconladylucrezia:
ladylucrezia Featured By Owner Jun 5, 2006
Hehe. My corsets are always fun to make cuz I do so with only one pattern piece :3 It's more dependent on carefully placed boning channels more than the design which fron the outside is only one long piece of fabric cut in the right shape, hehe.

I'm waiting for the sewing muse to smack me upside the head so I can get back to work. So much to sew, so little inpiration at the moment *sigh* If I could find the right fabric for my cosplay, I would SOOO make that :3 I want a cosplay soooo bad!!

Curious as always but how historically accurate (and to what era) would your costume be? It is amazing!
Reply
:iconladylucrezia:
ladylucrezia Featured By Owner May 26, 2006
Not very actually, lol! This particular outfit is more of a feminized and slightly fantasized version of a historical frockcoat ensemble (with a variation of a tricorn hat) of the 1700s. The chemise and corset are pretty close to actual garments of the 1500s though. Hope that answers your question :)
