I'm so glad to hear that Moresca has such a great reputation.  I've been coveting a Moresca bodice for about a year but wanted to wait until Faire started to get a fitting in person.  I'm very tall and have a long torso so I've only ever worn Damsel in this Dress corsets.  I love DitD but I want to try out Moresca since they'll be at MDRF and I'll be able to try out a few different styles in one visit.  I'm leaning towards the Max 2 and Mega and I love their new Gitana skirt.  It's not H/A at all but it all looks so cool!  Now, I'm just wondering how much money I should set aside for a complete look...

between $300 to $500, depending on what you finally decide and how much you want to accessorize.  Worth every penny!  It's probably a good thing they don't come to any faires close to me.  ;D

I think Moresca is VERY well suited to long-waisted ladies.  My hubby is a big concerned over the way the bodice pushes the girls up, but the flat, elizabethan stomacher styling does that.

My final bill is 489 with shipping, and I got it a couple weeks ago.  I have a Max 2, blue Falda skirt and a brocade skirt that matches the bodice. Oh, and I HAD to get a lace blouse.  The neckline on that blouse is gorgeous, people.  Its not elastic, but has these adorable gathers,you gotta see it.  *squee*

I am seriously considering the pirate bodice from Moresca but alas, they do not do the faires I am at.

How is the fit for someone who is small through the shoulders, small in the waist but has an abundance of...hello!

 The Pirate bodice will make your ladies fluff nicely.  They have a ruffle on the shoulders to give width, and if you already have a small waist (I'm jealous) remember this bodice is famous for making you look 4" smaller than you are.   I'd do it.   Get a Molly skirt to go with.

Thanks, Rowen,  because I am definitely not short-waisted.
I do have a problem with the small shoulders but I think I can cope with it and have a few ideas.

I have my eye on the skirt too.

Renee, as usual, you look great!
And I recognize your shoes..... ;D

I am long waisted, too.  In Pendragon bodices, I have to purchase the "tall" version, then have a skirt band about 3 inches wide, to keep my chemise from showing between the bodice & the skirt.  But the Moresca fits me fine.  And it matches my shoes.   ;D

My dream shopping trip is to Moresca's main business address when they have one of their open houses.  It's a good thing it's in NY state, too far for a weekend road trip for me, but I can always dream.

P.S.  wildthingjew has a pirate bodice and she looks gorgeous in it.  Maybe she will post pictures of it.

That's where I have the problem too, Renee. Getting them to meet. A bit long-waisted too.

And that is why God invented hip-huggers.

RE: Morescas- i utterly ADORE my Pirate. (and faerie- they're built on a similar pattern) If you have an abundance as mentioned, the pirate will support, lift, but not SQUISH the way Pendragons will. and the line nips in the waist so well- I'm just addicted.

Anyway, wanted to show off the skirt I made today, and the embellishment I'm doing to my faerie Moresca.

Maybe I'm odd, but I like the non H/A stuff a thousand times better.

I worked really hard on getting what made ME feel beautiful and still celebrate times gone by, and I hadn't even known there was such thing as to tell someone thy weren't accurate. Honestly. I had always gotten compliments so I was happy! The last time at the fair, I did get a few "That isn't accurate." Multiple times. I was shocked and beside myself the first one.

They were so insistant that I tell them who made my items so they could tell them what to change - at this point I was really ticked!  I told them I had two friends to introduce them to in response to their poor choice in wording - one on each hand. Ugh, dont' yell at me for saying that, I realize I was rude right back. I has a temper. I didn't actually do it, I said it; I have a tad bit o'manners when I'm wearing a dress.  lol. I'm cranky when someone is rude (and that is rude, not helpful!)

Unsolicited advice is always rude. Unless it is a "Your chesties are out, completely" or "Your shoe is untied."

That is the only two things allowed to be said in reference to garb worn...oh or "your barnacles are out" (for the boys). OR if someone is obviously having an issue and needs a pin or a lacing.




If I wanna wear a birdcage veil and feathers on my head, I'm gonna!

:)

Thanks to everyone for sharing, you allgave great ideas. I'll post after this weekend my garb for this year.

I LOVE  that steampunk house!  I want to spend my next holiday in it!

I love the skirt and the embellishments going on here.

And fantasy is good.

So, I finally built up the courage and tried on a Max 2 at Moresca yesterday.  I must say, it is a  gorgeous black and green brocade (and it figures I would love the really expensive one best)!  I'm going back to MDRF tomorrow with a good friend to finish picking out everything.  Someone once suggested (not sure if it was here) going to faire in danes and heading straight to Moresca after opening to let them dress you.  I plan to do that.  Whoot!

I just got my first bodice (which I absolutely LOVE--I have a grey Irish dress, but now I don't think it's gonna get much wear this faire season!!) from Ophelia's at KCRF this past weekend. Here's a shot of me in my fairewear! (Flower garland, blue, all kinds of doodads/pins on the bodice already, I think it counts as fairewear, doesn't it? ;-D) I'm the one in the middle who's *not* a faerie. ;-)
