This quaint Victorian gown is made from a lightweight purple, green and white cotton plaid, with cotton velvet trimming in a gorgeous blue-black. The perfect day dress for a middle class lady, this dress consists of a boned bodice flatlined in cotton, and a pleated skirt with front apron drape and a bustled train piece (bustle support sold separately). The 2/4 length sleeves have velvet cuffs, and the apron is trimmed with a pretty black Venice lace.

This costume is truly a GREAT deal! It is gently used, from my personal living history collection, and has been worn to a few events for a few hours each (don't worry, it has since visited the cleaners!). Because of this, I am offering it at a hugely reduced price (with this many details, a new version would cost hundreds more!). It is in great shape, with just a little wear.

Historically, this dress would have been worn with a corset, but it works just fine without one. It would best fit someone with the following measurement range:

Bust: 31-33"
Waist: 23"-25"
Hips: free
Height: 5'5"-5'7" (the model is 5'10, for reference, and the dress is short on her).

Not your size/color? I can make a custom version of this gown. Contact me for pricing and time frame. I do not have any more of the purple plaid fabric, but I'm sure I could find something similar.
