This lavish gown features your choice of either an underskirt with dupioni forepart and a split-front overskirt; or a closed front skirt with no underskirt. (please specify on your order form if you want two layers of skirting. If you don't note it and don't note the underskirt color, we will assume you want one skirt with a closed front). The bodice is a corseted and boned bodice, lacing at the back through sturdy two-piece grommets. The sleeves are separate from the bodice and lace under the arm. They have a floating chiffon bell sleeve that we can customize to any length. The sleeves are rounded at the top fo eliminate that dreaded "muffin top" effect so commonly seen with tight-fitting, straight-edge upper arm bands.
The gown comes untrimmed, but we would be delighted to add beading at the neckline and sleeve tops. We also have an embroidery machine and can adorn your gown with embroidery designs that can embellish the entire corset, sleeves, underskirt and overskirt split fronts. These features would require an additional cost, and we'd be happy to give you an estimate based on your desires.
