favorite this post Costume Gown ~ Full Circle ~~ Long, Large, Big Size - $45 (Asheville) hide this posting unhide


make / manufacturer: Bustle Gown (Antique)
model name / number: Fancy Full Circle
size / dimensions: Long and Large

The bottom portion is a full circle (lots of red velvet inserts put in). Would look great with petticoats underneath to show off the full circle! There is a lot of heavy fabric on the bottom part of this dress. Would look great as a holiday costume for men or women (it IS a large size). If you want measurements, let me know of your interest. The last photo is just to show the sewn in six gussets/panels of red velvet, giving this gown a full circle skirt. Please note that this is for someone tall. It can be altered to be made smaller.
The material is very thick and substantial and has a sheen to it. Taffeta?
It is a heavy dress and would be great worn in the winter also.
Here are the measurements of it ~ measured lying flat.
Underarm to underarm from back: 24"
Underarm to underarm from front: 25"
Big Poof Sleeves with a 10" arm opening (I think initially there was an elastic on the bottom to make them even poof-ier)
The back top panel is 18" across from sleeve to sleeve.
There is a 24" zipper in the back and it works well.
The narrowest it is at the waist is 21" measured flat.
There are 5 red velvet panels sewn into the bottom for extra width.
Black lace around the neck and a lots of black lace around the waist.
The length measured from the underarm to the bottom hem is approximately 46".
It is an antique and hand made and composed of velvet, lace, polyester, and heavy, thick taffeta.
