Victorian 1874-6 Raspberry pink taffeta costume dress with train with Venice trims FREE USA SHIPPING on this item ONLY

Description: Welcome! I have for sale my latest reproduction creation, a lovely Victorian 1874-6 raspberry pink taffeta costume dress with train with Venice trims. I have for sale my latest reproduction. This gown is from the Early Bustle Period, 1870-1876. The fabric is a raspberry taffeta. This fabric is very hard to photograph. On my monitor the last picture represents the color best, but I would say it is slightly lighter.

If you would prefer small pouf sleeves, that can be made for an additional fee. The bodice laces up the back with thick velvet string through black grommets. I have added boning to the back at the grommets to prevent bunching. If you are going to wear a corset, please be sure to take your measurements while wearing your undergarment to insure a proper fit. The bodice is made from 4 layers of fabric, so it has an excellent foundation. To the neckline, I have added pretty Venice lace and tassels.

The bust measures 40", D or DD. and the waist 34". There is a modesty panel under the laces. If you need to add a couple inches to these measurements you can,- but keep in mind, the modesty panel will show under the laces so it wouldn't be butted together. The max would be up to a 42 inch bust and a 36 inch waist.

The Parisian skirt is so pretty. To the back I have added the same Venice Lace. The skirt bustles into place using a variety if loops and ribbon. The skirt will be hemmed to your specifications. The max length I can finish the hem is 41 inches. Please allow a few days for the skirt to be hemmed. All seams are finished. I also have double stitched all the seams on the bodice and skirt to add many years of enjoyment to your garment.

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions. Thank you for stopping by!
