This gown was designed by one of my customers and is a mash-up of
the popular 'Ysobel' gown but with sleeves inspired by the 'Isolde' gown.
It features embroidery based on a clay tile from Great Malvern Abbey, spaced around
the deep scooped neckline, along the edge of the train and on the bag.
The wide flared sleeves are made of shot chiffon, with embroidered gathers at the hem.
The narrow belt is decorated with the cross detail from the main embroidery and delicate belt
buckle and Quatrefoil belt end, both 15th century medieval replicas, cast in English pewter.
The gown is laced down the back, with handmade cords, through hand-sewn holes.
All hems and details are hand-finished, with no visible machine stitching.
The gown will be made-to-measure.
The gown is made from hand-woven Dupion silk, and fully lined with acetate satin,
with double layer lining on the skirt in the sides to accentuate the shape.
It comes with a matching medieval style pouch bag and a sturdy fabric gown-cover.
Gown is shown in no 63 Lily, with moss green chiffon sleeves,
Gold Dust embroidery and buckle and strap end lightly tinted gold.
Not available to order.
