"Victoria" Victorian Mourning Dress with Velvet Trim

"Victoria" Victorian Mourning Dress with Velvet Trim


A fresh take on our classic “Victoria” dress, with improved fabrics- more color options- and more sizes. In stock in all sizes and ready to ship!

Black grosgrain or velvet ribbon was used by the Victorians to indicate one was in mourning. It was incorporated into clothing and accessories, or tied to items as a symbol of loss. Our “Victoria'“ dress is a modern take on a historical style, and features velvet ribbon trim.

*Shown modeled in black, we also offer this dress in a dove grey!

-Black cotton poplin is stretchy and comfortable. Does not wrinkle easily.

-Long sleeves with button cuffs trimmed in black velvet. Puffed at the shoulder seam for a proper Victorian feel.

-Removable cotton poplin sash belt can be tied round the waist for definition or not worn at all. One belt look at the side seam on the bodice of the dress helps keep it in place when worn.

-Back zipper closure.

-Hand wash cold, hang to dry, iron on low when necessary.

-High collar with ruffle trim.

-Decorative buttons at the yoke. Framed in black velvet trim with ruffles in cotton poplin.

-Fitted bodice.

-Full skirt wide enough for even your biggest petticoat (not included). Hangs as a simple A-line style dress without a petticoat underneath.

-Rows of ruffles adorn the skirt.

♥ Custom sizing is not available for this style. Size quantities are limited and once it has sold out we cannot guarantee when restocking will occur. Each colorway for this dress is only available in a super limited quantity.
