This listing is for a costume version of this gown using non-crushed OR crushed (your choice) velvet and brocade or jacquard for the sleeves, with metallic silver trims. The gown shown as made from non-cruched velvet and silver jacquard. The gown has a sweep train, though your can choose a longer one. This gown is made in two pieces, same as the original and all version of this gown I've made so far.
This is the first payment of $175, which is nonrefundable as it is used to buy the fabrics and other supplies, with the balance with the shipping, $195, due before the gown is shipped out (shipping is by UPS). Shipping is added to the SECOND payment.
I will need the following measurements to complete your gown:
Base of neck to the floor
Shoulder to shoulder across the back
Approximate length of train from the base of your feet to where it ends
Please allow 6-8 weeks for making and shipping. If needed sooner, please contact me prior to purchase. Thanks!
SHIPPING INFORMATION: Shipping is by UPS and is insured. The tracking number is provided as soon as shipped.
PAYMENT INFORMATION: I, like a growing number of etsy sellers, accept Google Checkout for payments. An invoice will be sent to you from Google Checkout. While payment isn't made the very second you order, it is much more secure than Paypal, buyers are protected, sellers don't get credit card info or any other personal information, international shipping is fine (there's a common misconception that it's not, but it depends on if the seller set up the cart to accept international addresses), accounts are much harder to hack, and fees are much less for sellers. I also don't support Paypal's tendency to freeze accounts set up for disaster donations and then to hold the money for 180 days.
When purchasing, please check the "other" checkbox and an invoice will be sent directly to you. Thank you!
