This group is made from a lovely iridescent silk cross-weave (blue and black.)

I have no additional fabric to make custom orders to match the pieces shown.

This is a very soft crepe-backed satin. All tops are lined, while the skirts are not.

I have more pieces in the Periwinkle Blue, including a variety of other tops and skirts in this fabric, please email if you would like further details.

The "Flowered" Bustier is Venise Lace Flowers individually applied to a Spring Green Bustier. This Bustier can fit Tyler or Gene style bodies. The Spring Green Skirt also fits both body styles. (Note: this color is more vivid than shows in this picture.)
