The first regency dress I ever made! With a pleated bodice, puffed sleeves, low neckline and high empire waist, this flowing gown is full of historical inspiration and detail. The back panel and underskirt are patterned with blue roses to match the lightweight sky blue jacquard overdress. Waistband and sleeves are trimmed with pistachio green satin ribbon. I was working within a tight budget at the time, so most of the fabric used was found at a local thrift store. The bodice is lined with (slightly sun-faded) curtain material. The lace/ribbon/flower trims were bought new, but other than these this dress is made entirely of second-hand repurposed textiles! Great for a costume ball, masquerade, hallowe'en, roleplaying, Jane Austen movie marathon..

This is a costume-quality item, meaning that, although it is perfectly wearable, the overall stitching and inside finishing isn't the greatest (this is reflected in the price). It has only been worn once or twice, but has been hanging up in the closet for awhile. I have mended it in a few places. This item is being sold "as-is." (Sorry, no returns or refunds!)

shoulders: 16"/40.5cm across
sleeves: 12"/30.5cm from shoulder to arm opening
arm opening: 9-1/2"/24cm
bust: 34"/86.5cm
"waist" (empire waist is measured at underbust height): 28"/71cm
natural waist and hips: free
skirt length: 44"/112cm from "waist" to hem of underskirt

The dress snaps and zips up at the back, where the waistband is then wired together with a matching blue rose. (The hanging ribbons are attached to the rose.)

Dry-clean only.
