Victorian Dinner Gown in black and burgundy by Stahlrose Victorian Dinner Gown in black and burgundy by Stahlrose
Again, something I made about two years ago - during my time at fashion school, since I was a lot faster than most of the girls there who just started to sew, I was allowed to make my own stuff whenever I had to wait for them.

I didn't intend to keep that gown and I have never worn it myself so far. I borrowed it to a friend last year who wore it once at a LARP convention - so this one is FOR SALE :)

The price would be 500 Euro (660 $ or 425 GBP) - shipping not included, just ask me where you live so I can look it up (I'm from Germany, so keep in mind that shipping might be expensive)

Size: German 38 - US 12 ... I can give you measurements if you like

Three piece dress (underskirt, draped skirt and bodice) - no undergarments included. I'll add a bustle pad for skirt support but I recommend a proper wired bustle and a petticoat for the perfect shape ( I can make you that, just ask me)

The dress is made from black cotton and burgundy taffetta (polyester).

Did you use the Truly Victorian patterns? I have TV201 underskirt and TV305 overskirt. About to make them. I just made TV101 bustle petticoat. Very nice work. :)

I used the TV patterns for some of my victorian gowns, yes, but now that I'ma aprofessional, it's mostly my own drafted patterns :)
But I really can recommend TV, their sizing system works very well, never had problems with the fit of the garments :)

Beautiful- I love the color combo of red and black... it just works so well, and is especially suited for that late Victorian bustle era. Gorgeous work, I especially like the collar and the contrast front panel of the bodice.

Thanks :) - this gown is made a lot simpler than most opf my others, but the fabrics just do it here, no extra trim needed.
