Lovely and inspiring, this Edwardian romance gown is made with dramatic embroidery and layered skirts. Light and flowing, the Edwardian Romance Gown includes a delicate embroidered neckline and sprigs of floral ivy embroidery overlay. Gathered softly at the waist, your Edwardian romance will be fulfilled.

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 non-traditional wedding dress...

Beautiful design and well made. The layers & embroidery details make the dress feel extra special. I am 5'6"/140lbs/38B - the Medium fits well with a little extra room (which doesn't feel too big, just feels like that's the style). I was a little nervous buying online w/o seeing it or trying it on, but I'm very happy with this dress!

    Once it arrives I will review it...

    Hmmm.....I'm still waiting for my dress to be delivered - ordered 9 Sept - left USA 11 Sept - it's been stuck in Melbourne ( but cleared thru customs) since Fri 13 Sept - its now Tues 17 Sept - it can't be this difficult, surely :-/ The perils of living on the West Coast of Australia I guess! It's not that hard peoples! Put it on the plane or the train!

      Perfect Dress to feel fabulous!

      Beautifully made; gorgeous fabric; I bought my normal size and it fits perfectly and is everything I was hoping for. I am very very pleased with this dress and wouldn't fail to recommend to anyone wondering if it's worth the money. It is!!

        Period piece

        Very pretty for period party but appears to look as though it has gold threading in it and it’s not, it’s grey (floral overlay) and dress is cream. Order a size up if you have breasts. Romantic but WAY overpriced. Not a custom piece and could be bought at a vintage shop. Not overwhelmed, Sweet but not a show stopper!

          This dress is pretty but I did not try it on because the color is not the most flattering for me personally. I returned it, but only because of the color.

                    So happy to have received my dress today. Amazed how quickly it came to the UK, within a week! Colour is exactly what I hoped. I would say to other possible UK customers, I bought size L I am 5ft 3ins and size 14 it fits perfectly and the length is perfect for 2.5 in heel.
                    I am so looking forward to wearing this dress at my wedding in May. Thank you Wardrobe Shop

                      Perfect for 2nd wedding

                      There is tan in this dress, but I would call it mostly off white with hints of light tan. 1X size fits perfect. It’s simply beautiful and very 1920’s style.

                          Beautiful Dress, just a tad shy

                          This is such a beautiful dress. It fit fine except right across the bust. It has like an X sewing line. I wish it had like an extra two inches. I could have worn it but would have been uncomfortable in the way it looked. Not into tight tops like that. But its so pretty and well made and you won't be disappointed. I did follow the chart measurements and was fully expecting it to fit. Just needed a bit more. I sent it back sadly.

                                  Bought this to wear to my sons wedding. The dress was delivered and packaged well. It fits well. And it’s pretty. However, it is more of a brown than a pearl color. So I was disappointed with that. Wasn’t planning on wearing brown to the wedding, but I guess I will make it work.

                                          I ordered this dress in pearl, in the photo looked like an off-white or cream. Arrived and is definitely brown.A light shade of brown, but brown nonetheless...

                                          I purchased this dress for my Australian Bush Style wedding, it was beautiful and fitted perfect and arrived within 8 days. I got compliments all day and still people are asking me where did I get my dress, and the boots I also purchased just finished the dress off, again everyone was asking where did I get them...even though the boots did not get here until the Thursday (due to warehouse mix up) before the Saturday (wedding day) I was impressed with staff of Romantic Vintage Style Fashion for having them sent by express free of charge..made my day and would recommend purchasing these lovely dresses for any special occasion.

                                          Beautiful for second time around wedding

                                          I bought the Downton Abbey Tea Party Gown for my second wedding. As a 50 something woman I wanted pretty and feminine without the full white wedding look. The dress arrived very promptly and while the colour was more a dark almost coffee cream it was beautiful. The fit was perfect and did not require any adjustment. I was very comfortable all day. I received a lot of lovely comments about the dress.

                                              It is a lovely dress, well made. It is a bit tight in the bust, so go a bit larger if you are larger busted. I had to return it. Also, be aware, it is not really "pearl." It is more tan.

                                              Since the return policy is so cumbersome and expensive with the wardrobe shop, be sure to read the size chart carefully and then buy a size larger.
