Stripe Walking Dress has been selected as one of our next projects.
The 3 piece dress as well as the hat and purse will be constructed of SILK ORGANZA & TAFFETA .
The hat will be built on a hand made buckram and wire frame and decorated with 2 green taffeta Dior Rose. Matching purse with contrasting corded piping trim completes the ensemble.
This fashion plate is from the September 1866 Godey's Ladies Book. Look closely at the red & white strip dress for the inspiration for this version. Note the green bolero jacket behind it which was used for this dress and the stripe bodice at the far left which shows up as the Red & White Christmas dress.
gown requires a medium size heavy duty 6 wire hoop slip.
~Inquire about Life size reproductions~
If you are interested in having any of the life size reproduction costumes ( gowns etc. ) please email us with your current dress size and height and the costume you are interested in replicating. We will send you back a measurement chart for fitting. We are not limited to Civil War costumes. If you would like any of the other dresses or costumes from other films we can discuss recreating them for you. Please send you inquiries about life-size dresses etc. to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Since the figuring of the costs for one of these replicas can be time consuming taking many hours of research into current fabric costs, we will quote you the recent charges for a few of the dresses.
