This is full Victorian Ball Gown in a lush taffeta. Unfortunately, the color in the photos has been discontinued; please choose a color from the last photo for your outfit to be made in.

Knee length bloomers with lace ruffle rear
Fully boned Victorian corset
Elliptical Cage Hoop skirt
Elliptical Petticoat
Box Pleated skirt
Off the shoulder bodice

The bloomers are white cotton muslin, held at the waist and knee with elastic. The back of the bloomers is covered in white lace ruffles.

The corset is a spring steel boned Victorian corset, edged with black dupioni silk. It has a sturdy corset foundation of double layer twill, providing historical shaping. It laces up the back with included black satin ribbon.

The Elliptical Cage Hoop Skirt closes in the front with a belt cinch. It has a black cotton bag to prevent stepping through the hoops while walking.

The Elliptical Petticoat is a white muslin petticoat shaped specifically for this elliptical.

The skirt is approximately seven yards of taffeta box pleated to a hand stitched waistband. It fastens at the side with a large set of skirt hooks.
The bodice is sewn to fit a corseted waist, and fastens up the back with delicate buttons.

You will need help getting into and out of this outfit.

Measurements needed:
High Bust
Directly above the knee
Waist to knee
Waist to floor, in the shoes you will be wearing.

There may be some slight differences in the lace used from what is shown.
Pictured gloves and shoes are not included.

Once you have made your purchase, I will send you a PDF on how to make the measurements listed. You will need an accomplice to help take them accurately.

Shipping rates do not change with additional purchases due to the bulk of the dress and the size of the elliptical hoop skirt.

Currently, all of my make to order items are booking 3-6 months in advance.
