Onora Bodice / Vest


The influence for this bodice is the Scottish Mens military coat, but instead of ribbon and buttons on the peplums, we have done a very fine embroidery work in Celtic knotwork. This bodice is made of a heavy cotton twill.  The shoulder epaulets also help keep shoulders from getting sunburned!  A comfortable piece that also looks fantastic with a kilt. It can be made either one of two ways. As a wench bodice style with boning and lacing (shown here), or for a dressier look clasps can be chosen for more of a vest fit. 

Our bodices are a period garment that provides lift and support, without the confining full boning of a corset, if the lacing option is chosen. They help to create that much sought after hourglass figure and are staple item to add to any wardrobe.  Liner side comes standard in black. Different liner color options may be requested after ordering.   As with all our bodices, it is made of heavy, washable cotton twill. There is boning next to the lacing to avoid unseemly bunching. Our seams won't split and our grommets won't give out. All seams are reinforced to withstand the rigors of wenching.  If clasps are chosen, for a vest fit, there will be no boning in the front.  Clasp are a gunmetal in color, other colors may be chosen by Custom Order. 

    Can be made with or without the piping option. The model is wearing one without piping. The close-up pictures shows the piping. Piping is an additional cost.  Piping will match color chosen for the diamonds.
