This is a beautiful royal blue 70s-80s gown, revamped a bit for your Victorian/Civil War costume, and now a one of a kind by Heartsome.

Dress is decorated with blue black feathery looking flower rosettes with pearl stamen centers. (Flowers are just pinned in place for easy removal when cleaning). A stiff blue with black lace ribbon is belted at waist and this just fastens with sticky velcro at back and adorned with the black silk flower clipped at back. You can affix the velcro tabs more permanently once you know from fitting yourself where they will go.

Beautiful Ruffled shawl style bodice, and the ruffle is repeated at bottom hem. Chest and neckline is a lovely fine netting or mesh material

Model runs approx. sz 5-6 and this is snug. It zips snuggly in waist area as shown and upper part with the fine mesh is designed to be open,but I can't fasten the neckline's hook closure in back. Does not however look so out of place left open as you can see. I estimate it is about a size 4/5 with measurement of mannequin with the dress on, Bust 34", waist 27" but let flat measurements help guide you and compare to your own garment.

Flat pit to pit 16.5" , Waist 12", shoulder to hem length 56"

Tags read Dance Allure, a division of Alfred Angelo. I do not see any other labels but it is a satiny like material with exception to the netting at bodice and a lovely blue lace trim that accents the ruffle at bodice. Beautiful vintage condition as I see no holes, tears, staining or fading. Dress is modeled with a full crinoline skirt beneath which is NOT included.I have a gorgeous black and blue hat also listed in my booth that would match this dress and has matching blue with black lace ribbon plus feathers. Purchase together and save on shipping

Frequently asked questions about HeartsomeHalos

I often get questions on what size it is, or a request for a size. Please understand that my ensembles are one of a kind, not made new from scratch but created with vintage finds and previously owned goods. For various reasons I often do not give a "Size" on my clothing items. Please read the description. Flat measurements and all estimated sizing are given there. Compare the flat measurement to your own garment. Contact me if you still have questions
I can sometimes mix and match my apparel pieces to come up with an ensemble for my customers, but my costume ensembles and accessories are "one of a kinds" and not made from scratch therefore I CAN NOT take custom orders for sizes on a particular ensemble.
Here again I state, my accessories, clothing items and costumes are recreated from vintage and pre-owned apparel and materials. Costume ensembles then are limited to my vintage or pre-owned inventory. Do feel free to contact me for help with a costume if you need one, just keep this in mind. :)
The exception is my head wreaths which I can usually produce a custom head wreath within 24-48 hours, depending on availability of materials. Thanks for reading
I usually ship out in 1-2 business days. The time it reaches you once it leaves my hands is in the hands of the shipping company, but estimates are as follow.

I have international shipping estimates in many of my listings. I do however reserve the right to adjust these if in error. Buyer can cancel order under these circumstances if the shipping is more than estimate. If you would like an accurate cost, please contact me for a personal quote before purchasing
