Marie Antoinette Gothic Sacque Back French Colonial Reproduction Dress Gown Costume
I custom designed this magnificent Marie Antoinette Gown and panniers with the Watteau sacque back train. the fabric is silk taffeta with black velvet flocked damask print patterns. The gown has an underskirt made in black rucched (vertically gathered velvet that picks up with the black velvet flocking damask prints. Price includes overdress,underskirt, and panniers frame that the gown is resting over. Gown ships within 3 to 5 business days in case alterations are needed.
I used black Venice lace on the sleeves and underskirt front hem for added loveliness and drama. The train extends 4 feet fron the hemline at the back and can be shortened. Eyelets and a drawstring under the sacque back allow for adjusting the dress smaller or larger around the torso area.
The gown is hand hemmed, and has jumbo silk gimp ric rac white trim for bordering and highlighting. The black velvet touches add a Gothic touch to the extra wide gown. the gown requires extra wide panniers, which I custom make as well. The underskirt is velvet in the front and taffeta from the front sides around to the back.
