Sooo... I was able to find more or less perfect replicas of the fabrics and patterns of her cloak. Her shirt is a fancy peasant blouse and so is her skirt. BUT THE CORSET IS KILLING ME. Can anyone help? These are my questions:

- Does any one know of a good corset/bodice pattern to use for her? I'm poor at altering a pattern and the deep point at the bottom is what I'm having the hardest time envisioning. I found a few with the correct neckline, but that V at the bottom...! I don't even know how I'd keep it from trying to curl up.

- FABRIC. I cannot for the life of me find that corset fabric. I'm so frustrated because I can find all the others to a T and this single one eludes me. Has anyone found this fabric???

If no one has found this fabric, then has anyone found something passably close color and looks-wise? I keep coming up with things too olive or too bright green or without the shine it has. I'm going mad over here.

Any help is appreciated.

Have you considered getting some fabric embroidered with that pattern? It's what I would do. If you can make a high resolution of vector image that tiles of the pattern you need, it's easy enough to convert it into a format an embroidery machine can read. Then you just need to find someone with an embroidery machine who can embroider it for you.

You could also find a plain corset and paint or draw on the pattern yourself.
