Let me start off by saying how sad I am. In the process of taking pictures of my finished gown I noticed the is some discoloration on the fabric. The base color is cream the discolored areas are white. The gown is definitely wearable but I must note the flaw. If sold as new I would have listed it at $275.00. That being said, this is such a pretty ensemble. The ensemble includes the day dress, bonnet, and Pelisse( in this case looks like a little vest). The gown is made from cotton. The neckline and under bust are drawstring. The gown pulls over the head. The unfinished length from under the bust to hem measures 51". I can hem to your desired measurements. The vest, made from dupioni silk, fits a 38" bust. The bonnet is made from the same fabric as the gown. The brim is wired so you can adjust it to your style. I have added beautiful feathers and flowers. Please feel free to e-mail any questions you may have!
