Velvet Mourning gown for Dee. Recreation by Gwtw4eveR

The distinctive features of this costume are the trapunto quilted collar, shoulder cape and oversized sleeve cuffs. The custom made oversized cameo is available on special commission.

    We have a custom
made replica of the mourning brooch we sadly cannot use large pictures it in the example pictures without blurring them due to the
continuing theft and poor copies of our work that are being produced by other less skilled seamstresses.
Oversized cameo brooch needed to decorate neckline is not included but may be ordered by commission through our agent and an artist/carver in Italy. Brooch takes 4-6 months.
