This 1880s era shop keeper’s dress is actually our Harvest Bustle gown made up in a gorgeous vibrant grape cotton print pulled from the textile collection at the V&A.
This bodice and skirt combination can be worn with or without a bustle (shown without).It is shown over our late Victorian petticoat only.
Our Harvest bustle gown is based upon an original in my collection and is headed to a museum group in Bergen, Norway.

Hi! My name is Susan and I am a historian, seamstress, teacher, mother, and wife. My passion for history has manifested itself in the art of recreating clothing from different periods of time. Growing up in the American South, I am heavily schooled in the art of recreating clothing from the 19th century. After nearly a decade of immersing myself primarily in the Victorian period, I found the need to branch out and explore other periods of time. However, it is my connection with the American South and the clothing of rural America that continues to be the driving force behind my designs. View all posts by Susan
