The empire dress Rose is one that is very simply in style yet has compelling details to it. Just like the girls from regency movies like Sense and Sensability, Pride and Prejudice or Becoming Jane, you will have that a bit etheral and delicate look woman of this period wanted.
The dress itself is still easy and fun to wear, not much different from you summer maxi dress. You will not need a period underwear to look really great. The dress does not have a back closure. It is simply pulled over your head and adjusted to your figure with the underbust ribbon.
The dress has all the key elements that where typical of the regency or empire period:
- a raised waist, accented with a ribbon tied to a little bow in back
- cute gathered sleeves
- a straight cut skirt that gives the impression of a classical statue
The neckline is accented with a red piping. It is rather modest, not revealing too much cleavage. The same red piping is used along the shoulder to give a bit of accent and structure to the sleeves.
This listing is the last chance to get the dress in the picture with the beautiful embroidered chiffon. It's just perfect for you romantic regency look with it's roses and vines. You buy the dress used in the first picture for the shooting. It is in perfect condition, no wear or tear at all!

This dress is the last one with the rose embroidered chiffon (100% polyester). It has two layers, the chiffon and beneath it a fine white cotton (100% cotton).
The piping along the neckline and the sleeves and the underbust ribbon are made from dark red satin (100% polyester).
You can gently machine wash the dress at a low temperature. It is best to use a washing net. Please do not tumble dry! Ironing is possible at a low setting for the top layer. The cotton layer can be done with higher temperature.
The basic dress is a pure white. Accents are in dark red. The roses are in different shades of dark red, pink, rose and a bit of brown and green for vines and leaves.
The dress will fit for a bust size S or M. Waist and Hip could be an L, too.
The dress is currently long enough for a woman standing up to 5' 11'' tall. (about 180cm) I will of course shorten the dress for you!
The dress will be shipped to you from Hamburg in Germany. Please keep in mind, that shipping to a country outside europe may take some time, depending on custom duty delay and how long your local post will take to deliver. You can speed shipping with the expedited option. If you need the dress for a certain date, please ask me before buying it. I can look up express rates as well.
Buying outside your home country may mean, that you have to pay costums, duties or tax. I can not tell you in advance, if this applies and how much you maybe have to pay. Please contact local authorities to get your customs rate.
