Pirates of the Caribbean Inspired Black and Red Dress

Pirates of the Caribbean: Curse of the Black Pearl is one of my favorite fun movies to watch and the costumes are fantastic. The costumes have always inspired me and Penny Rose did such a wonderful job of blending historical elements with a unique color palette.

I thought it would be a fun idea to create a costume that I felt was inspired by the original Pirates of the Caribbean movie. Here is what I came up with.

This costume includes a black fully boned corset that is detailed with lace and trims.

The skirt is a slightly bustle shape with layers of black lace and deep red embroidered fabric.

Back of the corset laces up fully and is trimmed with red silk fabric. Sleeves feature layers of deep red lace and are a very historical style shape.
