Victorian 1881 Bustle Dress Reproduction made for and video worn by Country Music Artist PATTY LOVELESS




Elegant 1881 Victorian gown reproduction, custom made and worn by Country Music artist, Patty Loveless (see photos of Patty wearing the dress). This mourning style dress is brand new, and was worn for approximately 2 hours for the video project shoot.

Ensemble consists of three pieces, bodice, skirt and the hat (bustle not included).

BODICE: The BODICE is made entirely of black taffeta with box pleating lining down the front. Double rows of box pleating on the sleeves. Pleated ivory lace is sewn into the neck and into the sleeves at the cuff. Bodice has been flat lined with black cotton fabric for easier alteration, with boning in each seam. The buttons are for decoration and bodice closes with hook and eye down the front.

SKIRT: SKIRT is also of self matching black taffeta, with a smocked black taffeta panel in front. A row of box pleated taffeta trims the hem bottom, and skirt gores have been flat lined with black cotton. There is black netting sewn on the inside of the back, over the bustle area, which allows the bustle poufs to hold the shape better.

HAT: HAT is a black pill box shape that perches on top of the head, referred to as a small French styled hat, and is an original Elsie Massey hat. It has black netting in the front and a long soft veil in the back. On top is perched a black silk rose and black Ostrich plume. This dress would also be ideal for the Goth lovers!

Condition:

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. Discounted shipping within the US 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.
