Cleo Bodice- Black Only
CLEO Bodice UPDATE (2018): Due to trim supply issues the Cleo Bodice is now only being produced in black.
Cleo is our first girlie frou frou outfittito since the Fairy Godmother stuff in ’97. This time we went all out with ruffles, ribbons, roses, scrolls and swags. Period wise, it’s more 18th C. or Fairytale - Cinderella’s wicked step sisters rather than herself, coquettes to the nines. The fabrics are edged with rayon ribbon, rather than our heavier bias binding for a softer, daintier feel.
The Cleo bodice, with lacing front and back, is a bodice, with boning, but of lighter construction than our brocade bodices.
Photographed in the swatch over a vintage Lace Blouse. (not sold on website- inquire for availability)
Not a hard-wearing heavy-duty wenchy corset, or particularly well-suited to especially curvy figures, though sturdy enough for some jumping around.
The bodice is made of several textures of bengaline, grosgrain, and lined with cotton/poly.
Sizing- Laced fully closed (both openings can be opened 2-3" to adjust for best fit)
Dry cleaning : Notify Dry Cleaner to use Petroleum Solvent only "F"! Tumble on Gentle cycle only. Or Spot clean.
