This is my version of the Titanic Eternity Gown which Rose wears at the movie's finally when she triumphantly joins Jack at the top of the Grand Staircase, much to the pleasure of all those surrounding her.

This dress is the Deluxe version with a Silk Charmeuse underdress lined with habotai silk. The lace overdress consists of Imported French Chantilly lace handbeaded with antique cracked glass. Additionally, 2000 Austrian Crystals were hand applied to the gown to accentuate the natural curve of the lace pattern.
 
To give our bride a more radient glow, 300 Silver plated beads were also hand applied to the upperbodice, back bodice, sleeves and trim running down the front of the dress. The dress also has the movie correct drape attached to the rear of the dress which you can see in the 3rd picture below.
 
The 4th picture is just the lace overlay on the dress form so that you can see the detailing in the lace.
For an additional charge, a movie accurate figure 8 pin can be made to adorn your dinner dress or eternity gown as shown in the first picture.
Pricing is based on fabric selections and availability of crystals and beading materials. Final costs DO NOT include shipping and insurance, which are extra. Please contact The Costume Mistress for pricing at thecostumemistress@gmail.com

Summer Weddings always take on special meaning for beautiful brides as they walk down the aisle in both indoor and outdoor ceremonies. Although the pictures appear bluish, the gown is stark white. 
 
These pics were taken in early evening light! 
This 20's Inspired Gown was created with 6 yards of lace, 4 yards of bridal satin, 8 organdy ribbon roses, 4 bridal appliques with swarovski crystals hand placed and 3 yards of faceted dangle bead trim on the skirt yoke.

HRH the Princess of Wales

The Royal Wedding Gown of Princess Diana
 
On July 29th, 1981, the world held it's breath as Lady Diana Spencer became HRH, The Princess of Wales.  Resplendent in her gown designed by Elizabeth Emmanual, it consisted of over 45 yards of English Taffeta silk from Lullingstone Farms, over half, 25 yards of silk were included in the Royal Length Train. The upper bodice was encrusted with diamonds and pearls. 
 
Here, I have reproduced the "look" of her most famous gown using 100% polyester satin and pearl and sequined appliques.  The gown itself is made up of over 10+ yards of satin and the trims are entirely sewn in by hand.

Additional half inch wide pearled trimwork was handplaced around the open neckline and a one inch wide pearled venise trim was handsewn around arm cuffs.  Ribbon bows adorn the neckline and sleeves to match the bows on the original gown.

My Fair Lady Inspired Ball Gown

Reproduction My Fair Lady Ball Gown with a modified upper bodice. These pics do not do justice to the sparkle in this dress!! This was a first anniversary gift from a male client to his wife. The necklace was custom made to resemble the choker worn by Eliza to the Royal Ball.
The lace is english netting with sparkling dangling beading and some swarovski crystals on the train. There are 4 layers in this dress. Lots of fun to do!!!

Gothic Inspired Gown - $350.00
Created for a Maryland Bride 

This gown was especially created by combining several different patterns. The underdress is made of a high quality polyester shantung with a very nice weight so that it hangs nicely. The overly and gothic sleeves are of a white sparkle organza. The bodice neckline and empire waist line are surrounded by pearled trim as well as a matching smaller pearl trim on the overskirt. The back of the gown is slightly bustled to give a more full effect.
