Strange Crimson Gown

I'm not sure what exactly to make of this dress. It began on the drawing board as a sacque back dress, I believe, but it wandered far, far away from the concept.

The gown now looks rather Regency due to the waistline appearing to be below the bust. The sleeves in particular don't look right around the shoulders (rather too much of an '80s shape there) and frustrate me greatly. It is made from a crimson damask and is trimmed in a red and green roses.

In the unlikely event one would like to commission a dress in similar materials from the Costume Mercenary, it would cost in the region of £65-75.

More photos under the cut.
