1870s Victorian Bustle Gown Costume for Scarlet Romance novel cover

This is a Reproduction of an 1870s Victorian Bustle dress, made of a butter yellow floral Jacquard and blue Bengaline fabric made for a Victorian photo shoot. As shown in the painting of a model wearing it in the photo below, I made this dress specifically for the cover of a reprint of Alexandria Ripley's "Scarlett" (sequel to Gone With the Wind) by request of the publisher. However, I can not tell you when they may choose to release the reprint. The dress is brand new other than being worn by a model for approximately 30 minutes and the shoot was inside.

BODICE: Flat lined with cotton and has boning in each seam. The squared neckline is trimmed in a dainty sheer pleated organza with another ivory flat lace trimming the blue bengaline. The sleeves have an open area at the front, which has an inset of rows of the same sheer organza trim. Bodice closes with hook and eye.

SKIRT: Is a traditional gored skirt with fullness in the rear to accomodate a small bustle. The front panel is split open on each side to expose the blue bengaline panel underneath. Each panel has been trimmed in an ivory flat lace. The skirt is unlined. The Jacquard fabric is a medium weight fabric so it has a nice drape to it. The colors make it perfect for Spring or Summer with a nice straw hat! The blue Bengaline is a darker shade of sky blue. $12. 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.
