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 fit

            The dress is perfect mother-of-bride dress for my daughter's outdoor garden wedding. And the fit was perfect.

              The color is darker than shown so this was a bit of a surprise. The description could have been a little more clear in that this garment is composed of 2 separate dresses: an underdress which is a classic sheath modified and then an overdress with the embroidery. I wish the tulle used in the overdress was of better quality as it is a bit rough. I do really like the dress and will wear it, just not as shown.

                    Just arrived today. Took it home and immediately tried on; great fit! Though I ordered one size larger than normal...glad I did. Love it as much as my wedding dress purchased 8 years ago (also a Nataya design). Thank you for a lovely design, quality fabrics and construction.

                      Pretty dress

                      Dress arrived two weeks after delivery to UK.
                      I thought it was the wrong dress as it did not look anything like the colour in the picture.
                      I would say it is a shade of green ( looks blue on my computer) I was a bit concerned about sizing as I did not want to return or exchange at such expense so I contacted customer services for advice.
                      I am a UK 14/16 and would wear a size 16 for a loose fit. I was advised that the L would fit as it was 16/18 : I was prepared to have it taken in. It fits quite snugly. In my opinion an L would be a UK 14/16 and a small 16 at that.
                      Although it works out expensive with shipping and vat ( and even more so if you need to return or exchange) it's a pretty dress and I am looking forward to wearing it.

                      I read all the reviews, selected my size, and ordered the dress. Not understand, I am such a tomboy but this dress fit perfect, made me feel so beautiful. This is my "Mother of the Bride' dress for my daughter's wedding in the early fall. It is fabulous!!! If I could give it 10 stars I would.

                      I was not sure about the fit. But after reading the reviews, I ordered the dress. I fit PERFECT. My daughter is getting married in the fall, and it's my "Mother of the Bride" dress. I am so glad I purchased this dress.

                      I'd been on the hunt for THE dress and this is it. I'm getting married it in! 2nd wedding.

                      Flattering lines, soft fabric and the style is perfect for any time of year. The groom will be in a kilt. Perfection.
