Game of Thrones - Inspired


"Sansa"


For the Game of Thrones fan, I've included this lovely design, complete with hip embellishment made of Worbla rather than hammered tin. Choose a brocade that is close to the original, or add your own custom touches and fashion it in a solid colored silk in your favorite shade. The possibilities are limitless! This full length A-Line gown is flattering on many body-types as it gives an appearance of an elongated waist; especially attractive on women who are shorter of stature or a rubenesque figure. Wear a waist-trainer corset underneath to smooth out your torso and accomplish an hour glass silhouette. Similar fichu with stand up collar and hip embellishment is available; however, replicating the original embroidery is cost prohibitive as it is hand embroidered. But we can customize something similar, or you can have a design custom digitized by one of my vendors for an additional fee.

Sleeves and underskirt ruffle are scalloped using an authentic 18th Century reproduction pinking/scalloping tool.  **Must be worn with an 18th Century corset and layered petticoats. Add lace engageantes (frills) and a chiffon fischu.

Edwardian Inspired Gown

"Vintage Vogue"


This lovely vintage pattern is 35 years old and is a rare find; when you can find it, it's now considered Steampunk or late Edwardian.
