item number #ALETHEA0006-20101124-05

Costume Victorian 1890s Regency Court ROMANCE COVER GOWN MED and READY TO SHIP SALE Was 285 NOW 115


This dress was originally used for the painting of a Romance Novel bookcover, which is scheduled to be released in December and is entitled, "A Royal Likeness." I have included a photo of the book cover itself and can provide the buyer with a book flat as proof it is the same dress used. The book flats are sent in advance of release to the author, Bestselling author, Christine Trent. The dress was worn by the model for the painting for approximately one hour. The bookcover was painted by the artist, Jon Paul who is considered one of the top Romance painters today.

DRESS: The Regency Court style of dress was not your typical Empire styled garment but is very similar to the Victorian style and was worn over a large petticoat. The bodice of the dress has a pleated burgundy panel in the front and is trimmed with a metallic gold floral lace. The sleeves are 3/4 length with double ruffles at the bottom. It fastens at the back with hook and eye.

The skirt is very full, with a sweep of 145 inches and is cartridge pleated. The front of the skirt has a solid burgundy satin panel with a pointed sash of brocade down the front.

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. US shipping of $10.00. Buyer pays for priority shipping (based on item's weight and bulk), with insurance and tracking included! All sales are final. I will be happy to answer any questions you might have prior to purchase, and can send more photos upon request. Note: My international shipping rates are very reasonable, with no handling charges but buyers should contact me for a shipping quote prior to purchase. Direct paypal or credit cards through paypal are my preferred method of payment.

SALE Was $285., Now offered at $115., a real savings of $170.00!
