Pretty Steampunk taffeta bustle dress with a long polonaise style jacket and bustier. Travel to distant shores in this gorgeous ensemble of Victorian delight.
I am currently discontinueing and selling the above dress pictured less the bustier. So this sale will be for the 2 piece polonaise gown. It is made from 10 yards of levely taffeta and the polonaise jacket is lined with a satin. Below the measurements is the decription of the dress for your information. I am discontinuing this dress in the shop so please take advantage of this great offer. Measurements are:
Jacket Bust - 42-44"" Open a bit because it is underbust
Jacket Waist - 34"
Skirt Waist - 32-34"
Skirt Length - 40"
This is a 2 piece outfit consisting of a long polonaise bodice, a bustier and an underskirt.
Made from beautiful taffeta fabrics
Bodice is cut in an underbust polonaise style. The bodice is cut to just underneath your bust and reveals a lovely bustier peeking out from underneath. The bodice is a cut away style in the front and lengthens to the calf in the back of the gown. This polonaise is completely lined in a coordinating acetate lining and inner lined with a cotton muslin. I use this inner lining to help hold a more period correct form. It also helps with the garment in looking less costume-y and more like clothing. It is designed and put together to last which is always a plus. It closes in the front with four metal buttons. The back of the bodice has a pretty adjustment panel. It ties in a criss cross fashion with a ribbon of the same fabric. Very pretty!
The skirt is made from the same color as the bodice. It is gathered into a waist yoke and has a wasitband. Closes with metal closures. the bottom of this wonderful skirt has 5 yards of pleated taffeta in a lovely plrated ruffle. Skirt is unlined but all seams are finished. The ruffle has a small hem for neatness. Length of skirt is ankle or even a bit shorter. You don't want the pleats on this skirt to drag the ground as they will puff up and not hold the crisp edge shown.
This is simply a gorgeous dress to wear. The underbust bodice is flattering to any figure. It is very slimming. It is pure Steampunk with a hint of Victorian.
Color: Dark Brown Taffeta
