LADIES VICTORIAN GENTRY COSTUME

SAGE GREEN / TARTAN

 

3 PIECE VICTORIAN/PERIOD COSTUME

VICTORIAN/PERIOD COSTUME IN 3 PARTS:

  1. BONNETMADE FROM A QUALITY SAGE GREEN VELVET FABRIC, LOOKS VERY ELEGANT AND AUTHENTIC, IT IS EDGED WITH CREAM LACE. IT TIES WITH DARK GREEN SATIN RIBBON. SINCE ALL COSTUMES ARE CUSTOM MADE FOR YOU IT IS SIMPLE TO MAKE SMALL CHANGES TO THE COLOURS IF REQUIRED BUT PLEASE BE SURE TO NOTE THEM WHEN YOU ORDER.
  2. MATCHING CAPE - TIES TO THE FRONT WITH SATIN RIBBON WHICH HIDES ELASTIC THAT MAKES IT EASY TO SLIP ON/OFF, THE ELASTIC ALSO HOLDS IT SO IT CAN'T SLIP OFF. IT IS VERY EASY AND COMFORTABLE TO WEAR. A SIMPLE TOP OR LACE BLOUSE WOULD NEED TO BE WORN UNDER THE CAPE BUT THAT IS NOT TOO IMPORTANT AS THE CAPE DOES MEET TO THE FRONT - THESE TOPS ARE VERY EASY TO FIND SO A HAND-MADE ONE IS REALLY AN UNNECESSARY EXPENSE.
  3. SKIRT - THIS IS A FULL HOOP TYPE SKIRT MADE FROM A LUXURY TARTAN CHECK FABRIC - YOU NEED TO SEE THIS FABRIC TO APPRECIATE HOW LOVELY IT IS. THE HOOP IS NOT SUPPLIED BUT IF YOU SEARCH FOR 'CRINOLINE UNDERSKIRT' ON EBAY YOU WILL FIND LOTS OF SELLERS - THE UNDERSKIRTS CAN BE FOUND FOR AS LITTLE AS £3.99! THIS SKIRT COULD PROBABLY BE WORN WITHOUT THE HOOP TOO. IT IS ELASTICATED TO THE WAIST SO IS EASY AND COMFORTABLE TO WEAR AND DUE TO THE ELASTIC THERE IS PLENTY OF SCOPE IN THE SIZING. PEOPLE OFTEN ASK ME ABOUT COSTUMES WHICH ARE ADAPTABLE FOR SEVERAL DIFFERENT WEARERS,THIS WOULD SUIT FINE!!

SIZE DETAILS REQUIRED TO MAKE YOUR COSTUME (dress size/waist and hem length/height)

SKIRT SIZE: The skirt is elasticated with very stretchy elastic so actual measurements aren’t critical as there is plenty of scope in the sizing and it is a very simple alteration to access the elastic through the waistband to make it a bit smaller/larger if required. (I suggest people buying these costumes for fancy dress hire/theatre or for different wearers (ie school teachers) opt for the largest size as it is so, so easy to access the elastic and draw it in/let it out).

HEM LENGTH: I generally make all adult skirts to 110cm/44" approx as a standard length but you have the option to choose a length in this listing or you can send me the details in an email by choosing the last length option, I included that option because I know many people have to run away & measure afterwards or they want to check how to measure with me first, sometimes people do send strange lengths through which I always question and as a guide I have shown that my own length to the floor is 39"/100cm at 5ft2. When you measure please make sure to think of shoes or underskirt lifting the skirt, my standard length is long but it is a simple job for you to turn up the hem yourself or even wonderweb it, and I leave the hem edge neatened/overlocked. It really is a disaster and doesn’t look the same if it is too short!

 

UNDER-CAPE TOP IDEAS (WHAT TO WEAR WITH THE SKIRT/CAPE): The lovely lacy tops I use for display have been sourced from local Charity shops - It really is easy to find lovely lacy blouses and a couple of mine have come from high street shops too. The childrens ones were just £3.99!! so buying a hand-made one could be an unnecessary expense really!


Many of these costumes are limited in quantity to the amount of fabric I have - some may even be one-offs - to avoid disappointment please place your order!

 

I am a professional costume maker/designer and have been doing this work for many years now. I have done a lot of research to design and develop my costumes into the ones you see here on eBay, my endeavour is that they both make the customer look and feel like they are transformed into the character for the period the costume should represent - which is very important for drama/costume performances.

       

The items I sell have been developed/created by myself (although last Christmas I did see some copies on eBay - Imitation is the finest form of flattery!!). My costumes are made to a professional standard on computerised industrial sewing machines - stitch quality is good! They can be used over and again and the appearance is far superior to mass-produced costume items made from fabrics which really don't look or feel authentic!!

My costumes are such good quality that they can be used over and again - unlike many packaged costumes which only survive one wear!! One of my customers commented that the costumes are value for money when you think that it is little more than hiring and you have a newly hand-made costume which you can wear year after year.

The list of costume items I have made and the places they have been worn/used for over the years I have been designing and making costumes is endless!

MY COSTUMES ARE REALLY PREFECT FOR ANY OF THE FOLLOWING: Victorian/vintage tea party dress, murder mystery nights (or Knights!!), Dickens festival events, American Civil War/various re-enactors/re-enactment scenes, Scarlett O’Hara,  Southern Belle, Antebellum, theatre production, school play/trips to Kentwell Hall/Croxteth Hall/Warwick Castle and other Tudor or period drama type manor houses and places of historical interest visits, a Christmas Carol play and Scrooge, Tom Sawyer theatre, antique/costume window displays, old fashioned Christmas, regency/ball gown events (I made several costumes for an event in Bath last year!!) and also for Goth and Halloween posh fancy dress. 

My customers include schools, theatres, pantomimes, TV studios, fancy dress shops, nurseries, American photographic studios etc and I am sure potential customers can see that I have a lot of happy customers!

FREE COSTUME HIRE TIP IDEA: I sometimes offer this tip to people who are concerned about cost as usually people only need their costume for one wear, many people have successfully done this: Buy your lovely costume - Wear it - Then re-sell it on eBay = Free hire!    

POSTAGE OPTIONS/COMBINED POSTING/URGENT DELIVERIES: I am more than happy to combine postage for multi-purchases and I can post your item either by 1st class as standard (should be with you next day) or by Special Delivery if you  need the item urgently (guarantees next day before 1pm) both of these options should be available for you to choose when you make your order.

Please see my feedback, I have lots of happy customers - a few feedback examples:

If a current bid is £20 and your max bid is £30, we bid £21 for you.
If no one else bids, you win and pay £21.
However, if someone else places a bid for £35, you will be out bid and the new highest bid on the auction will be £31. You will need to increase your max bid to more than £35 to be the highest bidder.
