This lightly corseted gown can be made-to-measure in many colours, including shades of purple, red, green,terracotta and gold and also in stunning shot combinations - red/green, violet/ black. Silk velvet mixes also available - mainly classic bridal pastel shades. Velvets can be plain or crushed.

From £1900 plus fabric (from £22 to £250 per metre). 
With additional internal corset from £2100 plus fabric.



This gown was made to instructions from a client in Washington - it is not considered to be a 'Rossetti' design per se.


Shown to the left, in ivory viscose velvet
with silver lace and internal corset.

Amounts available vary from a mere four, to several hundred metres (and this changes by the day). Once sold, these particular colours will not be repeated and the colour options for crushed velvet reduced to around 20. If you are considering this as a fabric and require a wide choice, it is recommended that you make an appointment to visit at your first opportunity.**

This design can be varied and individualised
to each made-to-measure order.
