Silk Regency Jane Austen Empire Waist Burnt Orange Ball Gown Reenactment Costume Sz 2XL

New Burnt Orange Regency dress made from a vintage silk sari. This dress was inspired by those from 1800-1815. The silk is soft to the touch. The entire dress (bodice and skirt) is lined with a similar color muslin. The dress closes with hook and eyes in the back. Ample gathering/pleating in the back of dress (an extra fabric panel was put in for additional gathering). The sleeves are finished with a saw tooth pattern.

I am 5' 5" tall and wear a size 8-10 dress - this dress was big for me, more of an 18 size. Please see measurements as this is an approximate size and ask if you have questions or want more pictures/measurements. Please also verify your own measurements - the Empire Waist is not at the natural waistline but at the bottom of your bra.

Since the dress is made from a vintage sari there are a couple minor flaws - see pictures. There is a one inch area with really small pin sized dots were there color didn't transfer from the print - I have a two different pictures showing this. The other is the fabric itself - there is a pull of sorts in a thin line that runs the length of the skirt - included pictures of it. You have to be looking for these flaws to see them. Price reflects.

Dress measurements laying flat:
Armpit to armpit 23 1/2 inches
Underbust 21 inches
Bicep - 15 inches. I am a 11 1/2 - see picture
Length of dress underbust to floor 40 1/2 inches. I can hem if it is too long. Underbust is where the empire waist is - it is approximately where the bottom of your bra is.
Shoulder to underbust 13 inches
