Complete Outfit




silk and cotton

A fabulous theatrical costume for the Georgian period for 1810s -1820s.  Made approx 20 years ago for stage use.  Ideal for Jane Austin plays - this was used in a stage production of Pride and Prejudice. 

The outfit includes a white silk dress with peach silk embroidery which can be worn for the day time scenes, a dusky pink over dress for the ball scene trimmed with green chiffon - and a white apron for the baking scene.  A fabulous costume made for professional theatre use and superb quality fabrics. 

The dress is white silk fabric with embroidered flowers in peach and dusky pink shades.  The dress is classic Georgian style with square neckline, high waistband and short puffed sleeves.  The dress has an Empire Line Silhouette and is ankle length.  It is fully lined and fastens with a zipper at the back. 
The over dress is dusky pink silk with a high waistline which is highlighted with a shaded green chiffon tie belt.  The over dress is sleeveless and longer than the day dress.  It trails slightly at the back and the hem and neckline are trimmed with green and cream braid. 

Also included is a long white cotton apron which can be worn over the dress for the baking scene. 

I hope you can see from my photos that this is a really well made and quality costume.  The attention to detail and the fine quality fabric give this fabulous costume and authentic look and will be a stunning costume for any event.   

SIZE small -  PLEASE CHECK THESE MEASUREMENTS.  I would guess a size 8 in UK size ( size 6 USA) The bust measures 32 inches.  From armpit to armpit is 16 inches.  Waist size 30 inches.  Shoulder to shoulder is 15 inches.  Length from nape of neck to hem 56 inches.    

Condition -  Very good condition - there is hardly any sign of wear - there are no stains under the arms, no holes or tears and no obvious damage.  There are some very slight make up spots on the neckline and on one sleeve.  The fabric is strong and sturdy - and clean and ready to wear. 

A fabulous costume for a vintage fashion event - or a great display piece. 
Please see photos and email any questions - I am happy to help.
