SASS Titanic era 1912 Edwardian Dress Costume Custom made for you by Alethea Sayers
This is an Edwardian style, Ca. 1912 dress, consisting of 3 pieces (underdress/lace top/waist sash). Made of a lavender taffeta, two-toned floral lace and purple satin, this is a very pretty and versatile Spring time ensemble!!
UNDERDRESS is lined and made of the lavender taffeta on the bottom portion. The top is also made of lavender taffeta but has been covered with lavender silk chiffon. The skirt is cut in an arc at the bottom, trimmed with gimp braiding, showing the purple satin underneath. Top is also trimmed in the gimp braiding and the sleeves are of sheer silk chiffon and slightly gathered at the elbow. The dress can be worn with the sash and with or without the lace top.
LACE TOP: The top is made of a purple lace with lighter textured floral pattern on top. It is open and trimmed in purple gimp braiding. It graduates to a longer length at the back in a flattering style.
SASH: Is made of the deep purple satin, gathered and lined with heavy interfacing.
CONDITION: This dress is brand new and never been worn, however***NOTE While ironing the back of the dress, I noticed a small faint spot. I've tried to take a photo of it but you really have to look for it to find it. It is for this reason, that I have lowered the list price by $100.00. It may easily come out but I did not try. The fabric was brand new though.
SHIPPING $12.00 within the US. Please e-mail me at: email@example.com for a shipping estimate on overseas delivery. It is very reasonable and I ship via Fedex International with delivery within 7 days. Alethea never charges a shipping handling fee, and only charges her shipping cost. Her overseas shipping rate is very reasonable, and an item can be delivered within 5 working days. Overseas buyers, please contact Alethea for International shipping costs.
A short note on the construction of Alethea's dresses... She always tries to maintain an accurate representation of whatever period she is reproducing. All of her seams are pinked to prevent unraveling. She never use Velcro, fabric glue or zippers on the garments and proper interfacing is always used in the waistbands and collars to prevent rolling. She also adjusts her patterns slightly to allow for more upper arm comfort than original patterns of this period provide. If a fabric easily unravels, she flat lines each piece with a zig-zag stitch.
Price is: $179
