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.

Excellent dress!

Arrived in 4 days. Very pretty, and well made. I'm delighted! I'm 5'8" and the length was exactly perfect with low heels. One thing: My measurements were exactly the same as the chart listed for a Medium but I'm glad I sized up to a Large. The Medium would have been skin tight or likely to rip in spots and this dress is not made to stretch.

    Beautiful dress for the right body

    The bodice is very high and tight. I bought a size larger than I normally wear and it was snug. Beautiful, just not for me

            Love it! This dress is every bit as gorgeous as it seems. The sizing is perfect and the quality is lovely. Delivery was amazingly fast and efficient, though the additional customs costs make it expensive. Can't wait to wear it to my daughter's wedding.

            True to size

            Lovely dress. Comes in two pieces. Underneath is a slip dress which is more of a light peach color and is a soft cotton fabric and over that is a double tulle dress. Nicely made.

            The gown arrived within 5 days of ordering, and is absolutely beautiful, and a very lovely colour. I'm glad I used my tape measure for size, as it is a perfect fit. My one complaint would be the price, but then our Aussie $ is performing poorly :)

            Arrived promptly after ordering
            Love the fit and detail in fabric. The only problem for me, was my gown was a little too long for me.
