The William Morris Collection - "Evelyn"
Brocade corset in gold and purple, fully boned and laced. The fabric is based on Arts and Crafts styles. Gauntlet style seperate sleeves with flowing chiffon mediaeval drapes. Matching gold silk skirt with small train.

A contemporary gown with Medieval styling consisting of a long-line laced corset, ribbon-laced upper arm gauntlets with hanging sleeves and a toning skirt with train.

The stunning brocade fabric of the bodice is based on a Victorian Gothic design after the William Morris school.  It is available in a variety of two coloured and self-coloured options.  (The violet/ gold version is shown above, see below for other colour variations).  Skirts and sleeves can always be co-ordinated with all possible colours.

Ruth chose to have the "Evelyn" design in plain, yet shot (two-toned) purple/ green
silk with green contrast piping and ribbon trims.

Shown below is the original of the "Evelyn" design - a corset constructed in antique textiles: moiré silk and goldwork embroidery.

These designs are made-to-measure.
