    I found this definitely handmade dress in a thrift shop. I actually really dislike the colour purple, and wish this was blue like it photographs (I really struggled to photograph the real colour). I'd wear the hell out of a blue velvet dress! But I still couldn't pass it up as it's so gorgeous. I think it's 80s, or at least made to look 80s. My seamstress strengthened a lot of seams for me as they were pulling in areas.
    Anyway, just wanted to share this fabulous find :D

    It's got some Victorian elements...quite some character!

    Definitely a LOT of character! I am unsure what to ever wear it to tbh, but I am determined to find an event.

    So I didn't understand your Victorian comment, so I looked at some dresses from that period and you are so right. Those sleeves are very similar to that mutton sleeve look!
