1870s BUSTLE DRESS IN RICH FLOCKED VELVET Costume


This is an 1870s era reproduction bustle dress appropriate for day or evening wear. The bodice fabric and overskirt fabric are a beautiful iridescent, changeable blue-green taffeta with a brown velvet flocking design. The underskirt is made of a rich brown matching taffeta.

BODICE: The bodice is flat-lined, with each seam boned, and then bag-lined to cover all of the boning. The cut is flattering over the hips with a pleated peplum in the rear that lays over the bustle. The front of the bodice has the brown taffeta trimmed with a brown English gimp braiding and gold metal buttons (buttons are for looks only). It actually closes with hook and eye down the front. The sleeves are trimmed with a vintage, fine net embroidered lace.

SKIRT: The brown underskirt is completely lined in cotton. It is a traditional 4 gored skirt with draped fullness at the rear. The overskirt of the flocked taffeta is also completely lined in cotton, and has a pleated drape front, that is open at the side seams. The overskirt is sewn into the waistband of the underskirt so it is all one piece.
Hat not included. This dress was drafted from an original design, and for day wear you can simply insert a lace dickey (or, large collar) to make it appropriate.
The fabric and style makes this dress a real eye-catcher and you will love it!

$19. USA shipping. My overseas shipping is very reasonable and can be delivered within 5 business days. I ship to UK, Germany, France, Netherlands, Australia and Canada. Please e-mail me if you would like a quote on overseas shipping or have any questions.

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. 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.
