Black and purple gothic steampunk halter corset and butterfly skirt

This corset has a halter neck strap, panels in deep purple silk, black silk and black brocade. Ornamental lacing on the front side, silver filigree buttons, and D rings and attachments for accessories give it a gothic steampunk styling. It has hand finished black silk binding, and a front busk.

The matching skirt has been lovingly hand painted with twisting purple butterflies, accented with gold and silver. The ensemble is completed with a black lace undershirt, carefully trimmed at the neckline to show a little couture lace at the edge of the halter, and a hand sculpted butterfly hair piece. More details on the hair piece can be viewed here.
