Are you looking for ready made or a pattern or just inspiration?

What age/rough size is she? Does she already have the underpinnings to go with it? (cage and corset plus chemise and petticoats?)

Let me know, oh and what part of the country.

If you're looking to have one made, I can recommend a few people but I've not seen any 'off the peg' that I could hand on heart -endorse.
