Please have a look at our 'ready to ship' section, otherwise Christmas orders must be received ASAP to ensure I can make your items in time for final posting dates.

Welcome to the three times award winning Blue Lady Couture, where you can find your perfect, period-inspired outfit for that special ball, costumed event or historical festival. Whether you are looking for gothic, Victorian, steampunk or regency, Blue Lady Couture specialises in creating custom outfits for people who have a passion for the eras of elegance. All the outfits are handmade to a high standard by Joanna at her studio in Lincolnshire, England. These are not ‘fancy dress costumes’, but quality, period style garments that will require petticoats and padding to achieve the correct look. Many of the garments are made to order, allowing you to choose colour and style to suit. Occasionally there are ready to wear items in stock all made using the finest sourced fabrics, trims and vintage buttons.

I offer a beautiful range of corsets, skirts, jackets, trousers and elegant accessories for ladies and gents. Some are ready to ship while others are made to order, so please check each listing carefully for details. My items range from lovely traditional bridal styles to fantasy gothic and steampunk creations, whether you are getting married, off to a costumed ball, or just want to accessorise a more modern outfit.
If you can't find quite what you're looking for please convo me and I shall be more than happy to try and help. I can source a range of fabrics and there are so many different colours to choose from it would be impossible for me to list an item in every colour and finish!

I recommend you use a site like for an accurate currency conversion.

Thank you for looking at my shop! I hope you find what you're looking for, if not please ask - my motto is 'dare to dream!'

Shop owner Joanna Read has recently won TWO awards - Steampunk Chronicle Best Individual Designer AND Best Non-US Designer 2015. In 2014 she was also voted Best Individual Designer!

Many of the items listed are unique one-offs where I've used a gorgeous fabric find often teamed with vintage buttons- so once they're gone, they're gone. I also have loads of stunning fabrics tucked away in my store just waiting to be made! Other items made with plain coloured fabrics can usually be replicated in your size and chosen colour.
