This Victorian style dress was created for and inspired by our friend, Melancholy Kitties. Dolly was digging through her great, great, great grandma dolly’s (she can’t remember how many “greats”) attic and came across another gorgeous dress. “Oh my! There is another one?”
The dress bodice has a fine fit with darts in both the front and the back, a ruffled raw edge collar that stands tall and regal and finishes with a tiny frayed fabric bow at the neckline. The dress skirt is shirred in the front and finished with a frayed raw edged ruffle. The fabric has a subtle raised polka dot design and is distressed and is dyed in 2 shades of Midnight Orchid (more of an eggplant color). The color may vary due to the dying process. Please note that the fabric is treated with Synthrapol to deter staining on dolly. I take staining seriously and do everything I can to deter it.
The dress closes in the back with 2 snaps.
Victorian ladies must wear pantaloons underneath, available separately!
