I have left this page up so that people can see what we were about. The business closed on the 1st April 2014 as I went off to pursue other things.

At Victorian Gothic I prefer to not really talk of 'sizing' as such but simply to make my garments to fit your body shape. Everyone is different and it is surprising just how much the traditional Victorian tailoring sculpts your shape. Some people say 'I could never wear that I have no curves to fill it.' Well, the shapes will make the most of your waist and sculpt in your curves! Others, 'I can't wear that, I have no waist.' The tailoring and shape will give you a waist and hold you in, in all the right places! I have a client who when she first wore one of our gowns said 'I felt truly beautiful for the first time in my life, people were staring at me for all the right reasons.'
If you do not see your size, email me, I'm sure I can accommodate you. I do have gentleman clients who wear my gowns which were originally designed for ladies, these are altered to fit the male form, taking in to account any undergarments/padding which may be worn by the client.
Pregnancy is no barrier as I can do as the Victorians did: Make the waist higher (Princess/Empire line) or add an extra gathered panel to the front of the bodice for advanced pregnancy which buttons in to the normal bodice and can be removed post pregnancy. Waistbands in skirts can be made with a drawstring. Making the waist to bust ratio less, and/or leaving out the very front boning for added comfort.
Please always send your correct measurements to me, as saying that you usually take a size 10 can be very variable and I will then ask you for your ACTUAL measurements. Victorain Gothic totally respects client confidentiality and will NEVER discuss any of your details with a third person.
Please Email Michelle at email@example.com if you have any questions about measurements.
