A fabulous Victorian antique bustle dress in the Princess style, dating to ca. 1879. One piece, in luxurious silver grey silk, woven with a fine raised stripe in silver and black. Close fitting, with an elegant elongated hourglass silhouette, fitted with boning, fastening at centre front with multiple silk covered dome buttons. Running almost the entire length at centre front is a panel of horizontal pleating, edged with piping, with the collar and jabot in sheer white silk, a nice detail. Sleeves are narrow and curved, with piping, pleats and more of the white silk at the cuff. At each hip is a large pocket flap, scalloped and piped with more buttons, on one side it is an actual pocket. Around the hem are three tiers of pleated ruffles, with a pleated buckram dust ruffle just visible. The skirt extends to a train, and inside are several ties which bring the fabric close to the body at the front, creating the waterfall bustle at the back. In the bustle area are two long grown on sashes with fringed edges. At the end of the train is a carrying loop. Inside is clean and fresh, with striped cotton lining and buckram lining in the skirt. Very good condition. A few small marks, with a larger feint mark on the back of the skirt, and at the end of one of the sashes where there are a few very small holes. Two buttons under the jabot has lost it's silk, a couple of the other buttons have wear. The white silk parts are discoloured and worn, and damaged on both cuffs. Small patches of under arm staining. The inner dust ruffle is torn in one place. The decoration (incl. CDV from Queen Alexandra) is not included.
