1860s Victorian Civil War era Ball Gown Costume

Offering a reproduction Victorian 1860s Civil War style era ballgown costume, made of elegant fabrics that shimmer beneath the lights. This dress will make you feel like a princess!

BODICE: is made of a sky blue irridescent taffeta, with a panel of gold and blue silk in the front. This panel is outlined in a gold metallic trim, as is the neckline. Additionally, there is a blue channel around the neckline for a drawstring and a vintage narrow lace trimming the top. It has been flat lined with each seam boned and bag lined to cover the bones. It closes with hook and eye in the back and the sleeves are puffed, with no elastic.

SKIRT: The skirt is really the attention getter. Made of the blue taffeta, a wide panel in the silk has been inserted in the center of the skirt. An overskirt of blue taffeta has been drawn up in graceful pleats at the side. On each side is a large bow, made of both the silk and blue taffeta. In the center of the bow are nice sized gold and white tassels. The skirt is unlined and has a large sweep for the larger evening hoops.

CONDITION: This dress is brand new and never been worn. I will send extra fabric for a hairpiece or bag.

SIZE: Bust: 42 inches approx., Waist size 33-34 (I can make 35 if desired) Length unhemmed from waist to bottom is 42 inches. I will hem for buyer. Don't Let this one get away at $100.00 off of the original price.
NOTE: This dress is brand new and never been worn.
I never charge a handling fee and my shipping cost for this item is $14.00 for US (based on weight), and very reasonable rates for overseas buyers. Overseas buyers should e-mail me for shipping cost.


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. If a fabric easily unravels, I flat line each piece with a zig-zag stitch.
