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.

Beautiful! Suits All Body Types

My stats: 5'11" ; 140lbs ; 38 hip; 26 waist; 34 chest
Size Purchased: Small

Bought this dress for my graduation (not until May) and it fits perfectly! Definitely hits a little higher on my legs than the average height but it still looks gorgeous in heels and falls below the knee. I am probably a little "hippier" than the model, but it flows very flattering over my curves. Very delicate embroidery- the fabric feels like good quality. The "peach" shift underneath gives an antique- soft ivory look instead of a stark white. Very fast shipping was a huge!

    Downton Abbey Tea dress

    WOW - this dress is absolutely gorgeous. I've bought it as my wedding dress and I cannot wait to wear it. The detail and design is exquisite.
    I'm 5' 2" and it feels like this dress was made especially for me. The sizing and length is perfect.
    The service from Wardrobe Shop was absolutely first class from order to delivery to the UK

      Pretty dress

      I ordered this as my wedding dress. It arrived quickly. The slip with the tulle petticoat border is quite long. If you're 5' 6" it would probably be floor length. I'm not, so it needs hemming, but that's a quick fix. The embroidered tulle overlay is dainty and pretty. The two layers will not conceal all your secrets, so an additional slip will be necessary. I love this dress, as a wedding gown and as a vintage dress to be worn again.

          Not worth the money

          Beautiful dress but not worth 213 Euros plus carrier taxes of 30 Euros. If I'd have made it myself the material would have cost me 30
          Euros. I would have been much happier paying 70 -90 Euros for this item
