Dress made in ivory silk taffeta with substitute Venice lace and front appliqué. Includes hoop skirt and reticule.
This CUSTOM MADE one-of-a-kind ornate 1860s bridal ensemble beautifully depicts an opulent era in history for both. Whether at an indoor ball or for your own wedding, you will be the best dressed lady for miles around. This lovely 3 piece dress is created with only the finest materials, the ivory taffeta fabric looks just right for the era. This ball gown bodice laces up the back with boning to ensure proper fit and a touch of elegance. The back laces up with metal grommets, satin ribbon and a modesty panel for size allowance. The hand beaded, drawstring, off the shoulder neck line leads to the custom picked Venise lace ruffle around the collar. The same lace overlays the waistline and back center panels of the bodice. (Lace style may very upon availability). The bodice is fully boned so a corset is not necessary. A beaded embroidered appliqué adorns the center bodice (may vary upon availability). The full 5 yard skirt closes in back and pleats to the waistband. Two layers of gorgeously pleated trim line the hem. An over skirt with venise trim gathers on the sides in a lovely apron. The matching tulle veil features sweet satin rosebuds at the combs where it attaches to the hair. A beautiful adornment for a Civil War Victorian bride. Also available as a custom order in your size and choice of colors. The pictures do not do this fantastically detailed outfit justice. With all it's pieces this set has a value of $2000!
