I call this dress Lady Edith - inspired by Downton Abbey obviously - I am great fan of the series. Or alternatively as a few of my customers say - Rose's dress from Titanic.
This is beautiful dress for any great event - wedding - for bridesmaids or a bride as an alternative wedding dress. Dor wedding anniversary, for Mother of the Bride/Groom. For prom, period ball, role play event, Titanic dinner or Somewhere in time promenade dress. My customers have ordered this dress for all the occasions above. When I designed this dress in burgundy as an affordable Titanic Rose dress, I had no idea it was going to be worn by many ladies to many different events. You could even see it it some plays and in Titanic ballet in Boston.
Made to order according to your measurements. Standard total length is 60"
The dress is made of eggplant/aubergine taffeta, the bodice is lined with satin and the skirt just regular lining to make it lighter. I could underline it with the satin as well for more luxurious feel but it would be heavier and stiffer - if you wish to change it, please let me know.
You can see hand embroidery on the bodice - silver thread and Swarovski crystals.
The lace covering the shoulders gives you the Edwardian elegance and modesty at the same time. And the lace at the hem is the Edwardian touch as well.
Can be made with silk instead of taffeta for additional cost of fabric. It could be satin if you want more shimmer in the dress. And any colour you wish :)
If you need the dress sooner with courier delivery - it is ca $40 to US and Canada and I have the courier option in my shop. You need to pay for the airmail shipping with the dress plus the difference $15 listed separately. If you need any help, please contact me :)
