Merchant Bodice / Petal Bodice


This lovely bodice is made in a heavy cotton twill with peplums (waist) and epaulets (shoulders) for the Merchant Bodice. A slightly higher class level than our plain Bodice.  The epaulets can help keep shoulders from getting sunburned!  The Petal Bodice version is great for a bit of detail at the waist (just the peplums, not the epaulets), also great for Fairies and Fey!  Can be made in other fancier materials if desired, please inquire. 

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! (the exception is 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. 

BASE PRICE LISTED ABOVE IS FOR THE PLAIN PETAL BODICE (not pictured at the moment), shoulder epaulets and other options are extra.

  • Made in 100% cotton fabric and is machine washable. 
  • Removable Sleeve Options 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.
