1880s Reproduction Victorian Natural Form style Costume dress

This is an 1880S Reproduction Victorian "Natural Form" style dress(no bustle needed), which consists of 2 PCS, Tail bodice and training skirt with apron. Made of an embroidered Muslin cotton, lace and silk taffeta, this dress is perfect for Spring and Summer events.

BODICE: Bodice is made of the embroidered and striped cotton fabric with a front panel of rose silk taffeta. The bodice is flat lined in ivory cotton with boning in each seam. The seam edges are trimmed in bias of the rose silk taffeta and embroidered lace is at the sleeves. A rose silk bow is at the back and lays over the peplum of the bodice. Front closes with hook and eye.

SKIRT: Skirt is a 4 gored skirt with front and side gores, with the front and side gores made of ivory lined cotton. Over top of the front and side are 4 rows of 7 inch wide embroidered ivory net lace. The small front apron is lined and sewn into the skirt at the sides and waistband. The rear train has a channel in the middle that can be pulled in or let out. The train is trimmed with a row of the gathered embroidered fabric. The dress fabric has tiny embroidered flowers of yellow, green and rose (see close up). Just add a straw bonnet and you are set! $16. USA shipping.


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. 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.
