This Electric Blue Victorian Dress was inspired by the one described in Sir Arthur's Sherlock Holmes story titled "The Adventure of the Copper Beeches".
In that tale Miss Hunter wears an electric blue dress of a brilliant satin fabric. So with that small description this dress was created.
The detailed front of the dress is accented with vintage silver buttons and a classic victorian bodice shape. Skirt front features a lovely draped center front. A full skirt completes the look while a pointed collar draws the eye upward.
The back of the dress is a slightly bustled and features rows of ruffles and gathered fabric. For a more fitted look the bow in the back pulls in the bodice.
