1880s Costume Victorian Bustle Dress Embroidered faux silk and Dupioni Silk

This is a reproduction of an 1880s Bustled Victorian Gown of embroidered faux silk and Dupioni Silks. Presents a lovely Victorian silhouette.

Bodice: The Victorian style bodice is made of the embroidered faux silk and is the traditional 7-gored bodice, with boning in each seam and double lined. The squared neckline is trimmed with a finely pleated ivory silk that matches the skirt. Also, there is a trimming of a solid deep wine Dupioni silk around the neckline. The sleeves are of the embroidered fabric to just below the elbow, where the ivory silk is covered by an ivory wide fringe and topped with another row of silk pleating. Bodice closes with hook and eye and has a small silk bow in the front..

Skirt: This is a traditional 4 gored Victorian styled skirt, made of a heavenly pale blue silk Dupioni and is completely flat lined in ivory cotton. It closes at the side and is shown over bustle. (Bustle not included).

The skirt is made of ivory Dupioni silk and fully lined with cotton. The front and two side gores are solid ivory, with a sideways draping apron over the front that is trimmed in the wide fringe. The back pleated portion of the skirt is of the embroidered faux silk. There is a solid wine silk bow at one side of the skirt at the side seam.

Fabric: The Dupioni silk shimmers in the light, as is it's characteristic face. The wine colored faux silk is heavily embroidered in colors of gold, ivory and greens. It is the heavy embroidery that gives this gown the rich look that would befit a well-to-do lady of Society. At a modern day cost of $40.00 pr. yard, you can't help but love this fabric! 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 $15.00. 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.
