Celtic Merchant Bodice / Celtic Petal Bodice


Gorgeously embroidered with traditional Celtic knotwork, this lovely bodice is made in a heavy cotton twill with embroidery on the peplums (waist) and epaulets (shoulders) for the Celtic Merchant Bodice.  The Petal Bodice would have just the peplums. The epaulets also help keep shoulders from getting sunburned! 

As is standard with our bodices, it is made of heavy, washable cotton twill with boning next to the lacing to avoid unseemly bunching. All seams are reinforced to withstand the rigors of Faire / LARP life. This garment is REVERSIBLE! (Exception! If you order sleeves for your Merchant Bodice, then it can no longer be reversible) Your fabric color choice is the 'outside' of the garment.  The "liner" side comes standard in black. Other color options for the "liner" side may be requested in the Special Instructions section. 

  • Made in 100% cotton fabric and is machine washable. 
  • Removable Sleeves are available. Pictures below. Sleeves would tie in under the epaulets for the Merchant Bodice. Petal Bodice would have a line of grommets at the shoulder for lacing. Sleeve option for the Merchant Bodice renders it NON Reversible. 
  • To ensure a properly fitted garment, please give us your Measurements in the Special Instructions. Measuring chart and form available via email as well. 
  • For a fancier, more noble look, velveteen is available by Special Order. Special Orders my result in additional costs. Please contact us for more details.
  • Shown here with our Split Sleeves, and Celtic Wench Chemise. Complete the look with our Celtic Merchant Overskirt, Celtic Petticoat and Basic Boots. 
  • Our garments are not massed produced.  Each one is hand made to your specifications here in the USA and our quality takes time.  This means it will take 4 to 6 weeks to get your order to you.  July through November orders may run over 10 weeks due to our show schedule.   Occasionally we can manage rush orders or MAY have the item in stock, please contact us before ordering.  Thank you for taking this into consideration when placing your order.
