The Merrick dress design was inspired by various European folk costumes, and especially influenced by the paintings of Eugen de Blaas.
Merrick is available on red and on black – This refers to the color of the skirt and (optional) detachable sleeves. The colors of the corset vest will stay the same regardless of the skirt color chosen.
The Merrick dress is here to make your romantic pastoral dreams come true!
The dress is made of two different fabrics. The bodice or the corset vest is made out of a nice plaid fabric. The bodice is fully boned and adjustable, lacing in front, at the shoulders, and on the sides. The top adjusts with metal eyelets laced with sateen cord, corset style.
The skirt is made out of a durable fabric that doesn’t crease or snag easily. The skirt is wide and gathered around the waist. The same skirt can accommodate a smaller waist size or a bigger waist size using an ingenious system of ties (or ribbons) which the wearer can adjust to their size.
The dress is designed to have V shaped gap in front, optically making the waist seem smaller and the bust seem fuller.
The straps of the bodice are laced with sateen cord, they can be untied, controlling how high or low the top sits on your bust. You can choose to tie the cord lower, exposing more of the chest, or tie it higher, covering the chest completely.
Because the top is boned and adjusts with lacing, it cinches the waist and bust, lifting the breasts and giving the torso an elegant slimmed look, accentuating the curves of the body. No bra is needed when wearing this dress. The top, when laced tight, is very supportive to the bust.
The Merrick dress is truly flattering on all figures, and accentuates the curves and beauty of each body type!
The white linen chemise is simple and classic, off the shoulders. It is wide and gathered. The neckline and cuffs are gathered by elastic. The corset vest is fully lined.
The detachable sleeves are an optional add-on! They are made out of the same fabric as the skirt. They attach to the dress at the shoulders and they tie with 6 sateen ribbons on each sleeve.
The white chemise is designed to be seen through the gaps of the sleeves, like in a beautiful renaissance painting!
The optional apron is simple, made of ivory linen.
