This made to order Victorian bustle dress is just perfect for Halloween. It incorporates traditional vampire costume elements into Victorian era costume shapes, and the result is sultry and Gothic yet historically based. Perfect for your next costume party or Halloween. This listing is for a custom version of the dress photographed, made to your measurements and in fabric and trims of your choosing. Since I no longer have these exact fabrics in stock, we can discuss fabric options, and I can certainly source something similar to the original. Please understand that your pricing may vary slightly depending upon the materials chosen (silk vs. polyester, for example). If you would like a mockup of the bodice (highly recommended) to check fit, this can be arranged for another $50.

The bodice is lightly boned and can be worn without a corset (as in the photos). The example gown closes center front with frog closures, however, this could be changed to lacing, buttons, or any closure of your choosing. The skirt features an apron drape and back bustle drape which is adjustable via hidden ties.

I have a background in historical theatrical costuming, and so all of my garments are made with the utmost attention to detail, quality, and above all, durability.

Bustle pad included.
