You’re basically getting a full outfit, you will just need to add your petticoat and chemise, and maybe a collarette, if you don’t want to add a full men’s shirt.


The dress

With this dress I will include the hand sewn and hand dyed cotton velvet jacket, with geometrical thread embellished faux buttons (closes with pins) and faux ermine fur with tails on the collar.

Skirt made from a quilted vintage blanket (heat pressed, not hand quilted).

Fabric stuffed bum roll, wig, silk taffeta hat with bow and ostrich plumes.

I will also include these stays. There are some sign marks on the outer fabric, but the inner one is strong. They close at the front.

I will not include the shirt, the vest, the gloves and the scarf.



Fits up to 107cm bust, 82cm of corseted waist, 167cm height. Can be worn with smaller measurements (up to 12cm less).


I can throw in the wig for an extra 30 euros.


The sale is final.
