This was a custom commission to make a costume based on the DC Bombshells Supergirl figure.  The WWII nose art inspired version of Supergirl features a bustier style corset with gold trim and lace panels, flowing skater skirt, silk scarf, and custom matching fingerless gloves.  I patterned and sewed each piece from scratch to fit the wearer's measurements and the belt was made by someone else.
The full costume all together: silk and lace bustier corset, leather waist cincher, silk skirt, scarf, and gloves.
The front of the custom bustier.  This piece is supported with built in bra cups and spiral steel boning at the seams.
The swirl design on the statue was replicated with a beaded/embroidered lace overlay at the back and side panels.
The lacing and piping was all custom made to match the cup trim fabric.
Bias cut silk with a lace overlay for the gloves, with hand finished fingers, and elastic at the cuffs for a snug but flexible fit.
