This gown is called the "Salon De Paris" Gown.
It's inspiration is our take on what a American saloon girl might have interpreted what a Parisian society lady off to a ritzy event at the salon (gallery) might wear, a bolder brighter version of the sometimes modest Victorian gown. As almost all of our gowns this gown is not a reproduction, it is modern and wearable, while still echoing the past.
The gown is made of medium weight taffeta in your choice of colors lined with a satin contrasting lining on the bustle part, matching contrasting lace trim, and contrasting satin ribbon lacing. The corset is also lined with the contrasting color. You may choose from the below colors. (Deep purple with bright red is shown)
The gown is in two parts, a steel boned victorian styled overbust corset with a front busk closer (suitable for tightlacing) and a bustle style skirt. The skirt zips up the back and the bustle piece is hand tacked to the under skirt and snaps over the zip closer, the bustle piece is turned back and sewn at the corners of the train to show the contrast for added extra drama.
We suggest that you wear a petticoat, bustle pad, or small hoop with this gown to give it support and fullness (small hoop is shown). This is NOT included in the price of the gown. You can find these at bridal stores or froms other etsy sellers.
Corset and skirt are custom sized to your measurements we will message you with needed measurements upon purchase. Please provide us with a valid email when ordering. This is usually the same email you use for your paypal email address.
