Garnet Taffeta Edwardian Ensemble Fabric Details

Photo by Nina Rizzo. Copyright 2015.

This Edwardian style outfit is made from shot garnet colored synthetic taffeta that 'whispers' and shimmers as it moves from ruby to nearly black. Black ruffled trim, embossed and regular plush velvet, and passmenterie buttons provide accent.


The taffeta jacket is fully lined, but is not boned. The unlined matching taffeta skirt has a tie at the waist for a bit of flexibility in fit at the waistline. The skirt is shown here over a crinoline and petticoat (not included). An embroidered silk chiffon dickey lined with cream cotton muslin completes the look.


The jacket will fit up to a 38-40" bust, 36" waist circumferences. When measuring yourself to determine if this will fit, please measure over any garments you will be wearing with this outfit (i.e. corset, chemise, corset cover, etc.). The skirt measures 30" with drawstring waist to make it smaller (larger is possible with a gap at the back, covered by the jacket), 43" from waist to hemline at the center front with a small train at the back. Dickey 17" neck (velcro back for adjustability), ties at sides cross over back to secure torso of dickey.

Ada Lovelace Inspired Steampunk Victorian Ensemble

Ada Lovelace Inspried Steampunk Victorian Ensemble Detail

Ada Lovelace Inspired Steampunk Victorian Ensemble

This neo Victorian style outfit is based on a historic reference from 1874 -1877 and was inspired by the contributions to the computer age by Ada Lovelace who assisted Charles Babbage with programming his difference engine. The daughter of poet Lord Byron, she is considered the world's first computer programmer, making her an ideal Steampunk heroine!

The majority of this outfit is made from a shot brown synthetic taffeta that 'whispers' and shimmers from bronze to nearly black. The center front and center back bodice panels are 100% silk dupioni in a golden tan color. The bodice buttons up the front with nine gold tone buttons, and features a small watch pocket on the left hand side - perfect for your dainty fob watch. (Watch and chain not included with this purchase). The bodice is fully lined with matte black synthetic satin, but is not boned.

The unlined matching taffeta skirt has a tie at the waist for a bit of flexibility in fit at the waistline, and an arrangement of tapes that gather the skirt at the back and pull it in at the sides. There are hook and eyes on the tapes and skirt that allow the train (shown above left) to be pulled up for walking (shown above right).

The final touch to this modern Victorian style ensemble is an embroidered eggshell colored silk chiffon scarf and a vintage gold tone brooch with a faux black gemstone - both of these are included with this purchase.

The ensemble shown here was photographed with only a small ruffled bustle underneath - it could be worn without, or with an even larger bustle for a more historic look. While not strictly necessary to wear this outfit, a corset, petticoat, and bustle are recommended for greater historical accuracy in garment layering and movement - but these are not included with the outfit.

The bodice will fit between a 36"-38" bust, 29"-31" waist, 43" hip with small bustle. When measuring yourself to determine if this will fit, please measure over any garments you will be wearing with this outfit (i.e. corset, chemise, corset cover, etc.). The skirt measures 42" from waist to hemline at the center front with a train that can be worn up for walking or down for a more dramatic look. From center front base of neck to hemline on this mannequin measures 56".
