Victorian dress c1870 by Idzit Victorian dress c1870 by Idzit
This is for :iconcheshirepanda: for making my new superfantastic avatar. She wanted a Victorian dress design in black and crimson, but the black would hide the details of the dress, so I did them in charcoal gray instead (just imagine that it's black...). I hope she likes it!

That is such a beautiful and elegant design, I agree with the previous comments. Make it first then you'll find somewhere to wear it

I would tend to agree with you, except that occasions around my city are QUITE scarce to wear such an elegant frock to. And being a student, my budget is also quite limited. =(

Awwwww... well, it's definitely pretty, not just as a concept. And I suppose it's always good to have a design like this ready in case you need one. :-)

Figures are MADE with the use of lovely corsets! I would so make this dress in a snap... =D

Glad you like it! :aww:

I love victorian dresses for all the little details they put into it. The hair is "normal" so no big pouffy weirdness, the hats are small and conservative, there are ALWAYS feathers involved, and the long draping of fabrics in different directions are so elegant. Not to mention the lovely figure you get by wearing a corset underneath, and then having all that fabric at the waist. *sigh* so pretty. ♥

And I even added a background! I've been told that my fashion design drawings without backgrounds are rather lacking. So here's a first, just for you!!
