This is a 2 piece outfit with separate laced arm bands, consisting of a pale gold crushed (panne) velvet chemise or under-dress and a rich dark cerise (dark red) steamed velour over gown.

The under-dress has a wide scoop neckline, a slight empire waist and a full 'A' line skirt.

The upper sleeves are fitted to the elbows and the lower sleeves are full and trailing. The lower sleeves have been lined with the same fabric. Separate arm bands are worn around the upper arm, these are fitted with eyelets and lacing.

The main gown has a fitted bodice, which is lightly boned at the front lacing section. The waistline sits slightly above the natural waistline. The skirt has been gathered into the waist seam and hangs quite straight down to the ground.

For the photographs, the dress was shown longer than floor length so that it sits a little flared out on the ground. This may not be practical for actually wearing so you may need to decide for your self exactly how long you would like the dress to be.

The centre front is open, and there are eyelets for lacing at the bodice centre front. The lacing has been trimmed with a pretty pale gold jacquard ribbon. The hemline has been finished with a narrow cream braid trim and a ivory colour edging lace.

However, as the exact fabrics are no longer available, it may be possible to source out similar colours and fabrics and/or source out a whole new colour combination.
