Historical style bustle gown in a stunning black and white striped satin. This Victorian designed bustle dress will make people turn to look again when you walked into the room wearing this gown.

This is for a Custom made Victorian era reproduction bustle dress. This particular dress is an early bustle period style, circa 1870's. The early bustle period was marked with symmetry and simpleness in design. I will make the dress shown in your measurements and fabric choice. Fabric colors are shown with the pictures.

Great for Steampunk and would be stunning at a Victorian Event!!

This is a 3 piece outfit consisting of a bodice, underskirt with an attached apron and a seperate back "waterfall" piece. It will be made in a striped color satin fabric. The vest and contrasting details will be made from a solid solid color velvet fabric. The bodice was made from actual historical patterns, which were altered to fit my design elements. I draft my own patterns using historical guidelines for authenticity in design. The underskirt and apron is a basic 5 gore design with a waistband. The waterfall backpiece is my design but is reminiscent of the "Phantom of the Opera" Wishing gown back piece.

The bodice is a one piece that had a faux vest front. Buttons up the front with faux pearl buttons. The vest and collar will be made from a coordinating color to your main fabric choice and will be made in velvet. There are small attached flowers that will be pearled at the collar. The collar of the bodice also have a handmade piping that help accent the vest front. Sleeves are 2 piece fitted and are full length. There is a small box pleat at the cuff of the sleeve which also appears on the apron to help draw the items together.

The bodice is completely lined with a cotton twill and inner lined with a cotton muslin. The bodice falls to the hips in length. The back of the bodice has a small "tail" effect that matches the waterfall back drape. Two small pearl buttons help complete the back effect.

The underskirt is a basic 5 gore design with a flat waistband and closes at the side with a hook and bar closure. The front gores remain flat and the width of the fabric is pleated into the back to accomodate the bustle. There is an attached apron in the front of the underskirt. It is trimmed with the coordinating trim and a small box pleat ruffle. The underskirt and apron are attached so this is one piece which makes it really nice when wearing. Skirt and apron are unlined but all seams are French seamed or serged for neatness.

The defining piece to this outfit is the back drape. It has a waterfall effect in design. It is folded back on itself to expose alternating layers of base fabric and velvet which make a really lovely design effect. It is a seperate piece that is attached to a flat waistband. Waistband closes in the front with a hook and bar. This back drape can also be left off thus making a simpler but different gown, giving you 2 dresses in one.
