The Victorian Tea Party Dress in Emerald is the special occasion dress sure to stand out above all others this fall! This frock, inspired by the famous period, offers flattering layers of romance-gushing emboirdery. The quintessential empire waist, prevalent throuhgout the period of early 1900's, is offset by the 3/4 length sleeves, enhanced by the modest V-neckline.

More info

3/4 Sleeve Length: Three quarter length sleeves stop halfway between the wrist and elbow, a stylish mix of both long and short sleeves. They are ideal for special occasions and give off a classy vibe, especially for more mature women.

Scoop Neck: Scoop necks form parabolic necklines for clothing, accentuating the wearer's collarbones and shoulder lines in chic manner. Scoop necks can be stylishly worn for many occasions, from casual to formal.

Tea Length: Tea length dresses stop a few inches above the ankles, perfect for any sophisticated, modern woman who wants to show off the right amount of leg. They're not overly formal, but still effortlessly elegant, perfect for casual weddings and get-togethers.

Empire Waist: The empire waist emerged as a part of neoclassical fashion in an attempt to emulate the looks from Greco-Roman art during the late 18th century. Today, it is one of the most flattering fits for dresses, as it not only creates an hourglass form for the body, but also elongates legs.

Victorian Period: The Victorian Period reigned from 1837 to 1901. Due to the industrial revolution at that time, clothing was made quicker and cheaper than ever, which allowed for lace and floral designs to become common. These dresses had visibly distinct bodices, similar to the empire waist fit today, and low necklines for formal occasions. Skirts were also cut narrower to produce a slim frame. A reproduction dress from that period needs to incorporate the above features.

1920's Period: The flapper style is iconic of the 1920s. Flapper dresses were straight cut and loose, they did not hug the curvature of the body. They also had lower waistlines to promote a "boyish" look. Dresses usually stopped at the calf, similar to tea length dresses. A reproduction of a dress from that period would need to encompass the features named above.

Downton Abbey: Downton Abbey is a British period drama set at the end of the Edwardian Era, the early 1900s. The show focuses on an aristocratic family during the reign of King George V. At this period of time, waistlines were raised to an empire fit. Embroidery was also very prevalent in designs. Layering the skirts of dresses with embroidered or lace fabrics also grew into fashion. Put together, these elements would make a dress that accurately represents the late Edwardian Era.

Perfect dress

Ordered this dress in a large, the fit is perfect and it is even prettier than the picture! It fits perfectly in all the right places and is forgiving in the hip and stomach area due to the “empire waist”. Be sure to get the right fit for the bust, there’s no “give” in that area of the dress. I thought, from the picture, I would be able to wear black shoes but the layers over the green slip make it have a black/brown color that true black shoes don’t quite work. So I plan to wear nude shoes and they compliment the dress perfectly. I am extremely pleased with my dress, it’s unique, feminine and classy. Perfect for a formal wedding!

      Absolutely beautiful!

      This dress arrived as gorgeous as I expected. As I am "short", at 160cm, I thought I may need to get it taken up but it's the perfect length after all. The detail is exquisite and so feminine. I cannot wait to wear it to my son's wedding... if they would just get on and set the date! I am ready.

            Custmer Service par excellence!!

            Fabulous dress...bought XL as 1X not in stock....didn't fit so well but my query re returning garment was dealt with in the most courteous manner.... Sent dress back but excited about ordering another beauty from this amazing shop once I have received my credit....would advise anyone who is "between sizes" to go for the larger option.
