1890s Victorian Day Dress Costume of Yellow silk with Victorian hat

1890s Victorian Day Dress Costume of Yellow silk with Victorian hat.

Beautiful reproduction of an 1890s "natural form" era (no bustle needed) day dress of yellow Dupioni silk with blue silk accents, and vintage ivory lace. This Gibson Girl ensemble consists of 4 pieces, overjacket, lace undershirt, skirt and hat. This Belle Epoch ensemble will make you feel transported in time for those special outings!

JACKET: The short over jacket comes to points in the front, and is trimmed with yellow soutache braid that I have hand sewn pale, blue-glass beading onto. The jacket is held closed in front with a vintage ivory frog, and has the smaller puffed sleeves to the elbow with lace covered straight sleeves below the elbow. Jacket is lined in yellow cotton and has boning in the side seams.

UNDERSHIRT BODICE: The undershirt is made of ivory silk taffeta with ivory lace overlaid on top. It closes down the front and has an elastic band around the back at the waist, which is open to the collar. The blue silk half bows are snapped on the collar, and undershirt can be worn with, or, without them.

SKIRT: The flared skirt is of yellow silk dupioni, and has been trimmed with a wide, gathered vintage ivory lace. It is flat-lined, and trimmed down the front panel with the yellow soutache trim. There are two blue silk bows on the front, and one at the rear of the flair. In the center of the bows is a yellow applique' with blue glass beading. Between the lace and the skirt, wrapping around to the rear is another row of the yellow silk which has been trimmed with a finely pleated row of silk. This adds more interest at the back of the dress and makes the flare fuller.

The hat is a 22 Inch wide brim, which has been covered in yellow silk that is gathered on the underside. Yellow soutache trim runs around the brim, and pale blue tulle streams down the back with a large wired bow of blue and yellow on the top. Blue and yellow flowers, with a blue ostrich plume adorn the top.

This dress is perfect for tea or an afternoon stroll and has never been worn. Brooch is not included.

USA shipping cost (in 2 boxes) of $14.00 USD. I never charge a handling fee, and only charge my shipping cost. My overseas shipping rate is very reasonable, and can be delivered within 5 working days. Overseas buyers please contact me for International shipping cost. Paypal only for outside US.


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.
