Victorian Costume 1880s Bustle style with silk and taffeta with 6 pieces SALE Was 435 NOW 399

This Victorian costume ensemble is an 1880's Victorian Bustled style dress, which consists of 6 PCS; Victorian style Hat, 2 removable lace cuffs, removable white bib, Victorian style bodice and skirt only (The Victorian traveling case, Victorian style broach, hankerchief and black lace shawl are NOT included for this sale.). This lovely Victorian costume is made of a black taffeta, and copper/blk striped silk. Designed to be convertible for both Day or Evening wear!

Bodice: Bodice is made of black taffeta, with a front insert of the copper and striped silk fabric, which has been trimmed with matching fabric ruching on each side. The Victorian style bodice is lined in black cotton and fully boned in each seam. The sleeves are of the black taffeta and 3/4 style with finely pleated taffeta at the wrists. Note: The buttons are for decoration- the bodice closes with hook and eye in the front. The bodice rear has a small, pleated peplum, which has a larger length of ruched fabric for femininity. Also, on each sleeve is a shorter piece of the matching, edged ruching below the elbow..

Skirt: This Victorian style skirt is a 4 gored skirt. 3 of the gores are made of black taffeta, flat lined with black cotton and finished at the bottom with a length of finely pleated copper silk and trimmed with narrow black velvet ribbon. The bustled rear has been pulled up on the inside to create the bustle puffs, and there is black netting sewn to the inside for more "body" for the bustling. The rear gore is made of the Dupioni striped silk and flat lined. (Bustle not included).

HAT: The Victorian style hat is made of straw painted black and turned up at both sides. A piece of the ruched fabric covers the crown, as well as a black tulle bow and two black Ostrich Plumes.

LACE CUFFS: The white embroidered net lace cuffs are 5 inches wide, and have elastic sewn in at the wrist so they just pull on and off to peak out of the black taffeta pleats when desired. They are easily removed for a different effect... or day to evening.

WHITE COLLAR BIB: THis Victorian style collar is made of a patterned white jacquard fabric with a stand up collar. The bib extends to just below the bust in the front and is trimmed at the neckline with narrow black velvet ribbon. It is easily removed for evening wear.

Please note that the traveling case, broach, hankerchief and black lace shawl are NOT included. For Day wear, wear the bib, cuffs and hat and for evening just remove them for a lower neckline! This dress is brand new and shown over a bustle cage which is NOT included in the price.


A short note on the construction of my dresses... I always try to maintain an accurate representation of whatever period I am reproducing. All of my seams are pinked to prevent unraveling. I never use Velcro, fabric glue or zippers on the garments and proper interfacing is always used in the waistbands and collars to prevent rolling. I also adjust my patterns slightly to allow for more upper arm comfort than original patterns of this period provide. If a fabric easily unravels, I flat line each piece with a zig-zag stitch. US shipping of $14.00. Outside the US, please e-mail me for a very reasonable shipping cost. Delivery time approx. 3-5 days within US and 5-7 days outside the US. I prefer payment via credit cards through paypal.
