This lovely, summery regency gown will made from 100% cotton with a sash of 100% silk chiffon, though, for this gown at this price, any color can also be used. Both will be pre-washed twice to get all shrinking out of the way, and then the silk chiffon hand-dyed to this beautiful beachy blue or anther shade of your choice. It will be washed yet again to remove all excess dye. Of course all this washing means this gown is as easy to clean as tossing in the washer and dryer.
With the exception of the sleeves, this gown is fully lined and hemmed by hand. It closes up the back with four functional buttons as well as the sash. As one would expect, it has the "princess" seaming and dropped shoulder seams commonly seen in this era.
This gown is loosely based on the ball gown worn by Jane Bennett in 2005's Pride & Predjudice.
I will need the following measurements to complete your gown:
Base of neck to the floor
Shoulder to shoulder across the back
and of course the color for your sash
Please allow 8-10 weeks to make and ship (usually takes much less time though). Rush ordering, when available, incurs an additional fee depending on how soon it's needed. Photos will be sent to you for approval prior to shipping.
SHIPPING INFORMATION: The international shipping cost for this listing includes postal shipping. Delivery will be confirmed, but will not be tracked every step of the way. If you are more comfortable with tracking every step of the way or want a faster delivery time, please purchase my other listing for this dress. The estimated transit time is 2-3 weeks, depending on customs times. I do ship as gift. Thanks you.
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!
