Victorian one piece cotton dress perfect for any mid 19th century impression. One piece dress is lined with muslin, has mother of pearl buttons, and boasts 4 yards in the skirt so you can accommodate a normal 4 or 6 bone hoop if desired. Sleeve choices include a full bishop sleeve with a ruffle at the cuff and elastic at the wrist, or full bishop with a cuff at the wrist. If it measures more than 50 wide, only 6-7 yards is needed. We will need the following measurements. Waist, Bust, Waist to Ankle length, Back Waist (from nape of neck where your bodice neckline would be to correct natural waist). The dress will be made to these measurements, so if you desire a looser fit, please let us know at the time measurements are given. We are not responsible for measurements that are taken inaccurately. This dress, as well as all of our custom made dresses, are all created from original pattern diagrams of the period. Modern clothing is now created for a “drop waist, ” putting your waist much lower than the 19th century norm. Wearing a corset will also put your waist at the correct location for this period. If you are a “low rise” and “drop waist” jean wearer, you can always bend to the side, and where your skin bulges in at the side is most likely the correct location for your waist measurement to be taken. All side seams are exposed so that you may take in the bodice portion if needed. We will be glad to meet with you at The Octagon House or various events that we set up at during the year for fitting adjustments etc. We welcome open communication throughout this process.
