    Gown and Lace Basque

    Code: 81100-2

    Attractive and alluring, this eye-catching gown is sure to please! Classic 19th century taffeta gown has fitted and boned bodice with scooped low neckline. Gown has slight V-shape to the front and back waist. Short shirred sleeves are off-the shoulder. The full skirt can accommodate a hoop skirt (as shown) or a crinoline. The gown is topped with a separate black lace basque, of French origin, which was typically worn over low neckline evening dresses in the mid 1800's. This flirtatious lace piece closes in the front with black braided frogs. Basque has lovely lace draping over the shoulders, ruffled lace extending from back to front, along with rows of beaded rayon and embroidered lace trim. The open under armed top meets at a waistband of black taffeta and finishes with a black ruffled peplum. Available in sizes XS to XXXXL. Your choice of zipper or hook and eye closure. In a variety of fine taffeta colors. Dry clean. Acetate taffeta and lace. The model is wearing an extra full crinoline, boots, jewelry, and gloves, all of which are priced separately.

    Q: Hi.--can this gown be customized? I am quite short and busty, so I need the top in an xxl and the rest I am xxl. Also, I need the length managed. Thank you for your reply. ~Wendy

    A: Yes, we can do alterations if needed. Skirt length change is a 20.00 fee, if a bodice adjustment is needed, that is $35.00. We suggest sending a bust and waist measurement with the order, as well as a waist to floor measurement.

    What size should I order?

    Most people find that our sizing runs generously. If you are undecided with which size to order, it is best to order the smaller size, or give us a call to assist you (1-800-452-5925). You may also email us at with your measurements (bust and waist) and we can help you choose the nearest size.

    An exception to the generous sizing is the type of ball gown that requires boning in the bodice and that supports a heavy skirt. Many times this style is also "off-the-shoulder" and requires a firm fit to stay up. These styles tend to not run as generously as most of our other garments because of this. But please, give us a call if you are uncertain.

    In most cases you should take your bust and waist measurement to determine your size. Please wear the undergarments that you intend to wear when you do your measuring. For example, take your measurement over the type of brassiere or corset that you may be wearing.

    Measure the fullest part of your bust around and the smallest part of your waist.
