This deep blood wine red velvet coat dress from Punk Rave is victorian gothic stunning.
You will fall in love with this style if you are a romantic goth, elegant vampire or victorian lady who appreciates the allure of velvet and lace with beautiful draping and a mysterious otherworldly quality.
Opening at the front with a zip that has a piece of pewter style jewellery as its zip pull, a vampire queen cross entwined with snakes, skulls & bejewelled with a black faceted stone.
Velvet buttons rest either side of the zip creating a dramatic victorian gown affect, think of some of Irene Adler's dresses in the Sherlock Holmes films.
The dress collar is a lovely victorian high stand up style decorated with black lace and trimmed with braid.
This is called a Coat Dress because the zip finishes around the hip level and the dress is open below that point. Perfect for wearing over a skirt or over a fuller ball gown skirt.
The full length fitted sleeves are very victorian but at the sleeve hem are braided and shaped in a princess bell or renaissance style shape.
On the back there is a fantastic corset lacing style braid going down the back of the Gothic Empress Coat Dress.
Special things about this Coat Dress:
- Can be worn as a dress or a coat
- Versatile enough to allow a hoop skirt to be worn underneath so you can transform into a gothic ball gown outfit
- Fully lined
- Two useable side pockets
