Custom made to your measurements will be this brocade Marie Antoinette dress. Dress is made from a very rich looking blue brocade with golden Rococo embellishments around the neckline and sleeves, and underskirt petticoat. This listing is for the bodice corset , the overskirt, the underskirt underskirt, and the panniers cage frame...4 separate peices. Dress in the pictures shown in the blue. Dress gown costume can be constructed in blue, candy pink, or ivory.
I have custom constructed the Rococo trim from a heavy weight wide satin ribbon, and scalloped white scrolling laces. Embellishments are in mauve pink, medium pink, white French scrolled lace. Luscious looking cabbage roses accenting the Rococo trims. These custom built trims add the confectionary dessert appeal that was a favorite theme during the Rococo period. Large delightful ribbon bow clusters add the finishing touches.
The bodice is made on princess lines with boning in all seams. The flounced sleeves are lined from the shoulders to elbow in soft muslin. The under sleeves are made from antique ecru lace. Sleeves are embellished in the same golden Rococo trim that is on the neckline. Bows are removable, and the dress can be worn with or without the bows. White lace overlay that covers the center front bodice. The bodice hem line has piping for a richer look.
Bodice is built like a corset, and has been flat linedin corset canvas... and inner lined with soft muslin.The muslin lining is cool and comfortable. The bodice opens and closes in the back with a pink ribbon drawstring running through industrial strength grommets. A privacy panel is also built into the back opening. The privacy panel can extend the bodice corset by adding 1 to 2 inches.
The skirt is pleated onto a true waistband.The waistband can be made to your exact waist size, or it can be made a little larger with a length of elastic for slight weight gain or loss. The skirt opens and closes at the back with industrial strength hooks and bars. A privacy panel is also at the back opening. The skirt is hemmed according to your height, over panniers and a round hoop cage. This skirt is built to wear with panniers only. The overskirt has a small train at the back.
The underskirt has a drawstring waist. Only the front is exposed with the rich Rococo custom trimmings. The sides and back of the underskirt petticoat are built from light pink taffeta. The taffeta petticoat adds fluff to the blue brocade dress overskirt.
Dress will be CUSTOMIZED and built over dress forms set at your measurements. Construction takes 3 to 4 weeks leadtime... after payment, and measurements are received. I accept split payments.
