A style based on the Victorian painting "The Accolade" by Edmund Blair Leighton. 

The gown featured in the painting is a Victorian fantasy medieval style derived from a misinterpretation of an actual 12th century dress style where a bodice or wide belt was used to fit a loose fitting gown to the figure.

However, this style has a fitted bodice with the attached skirt gathered in to the "V" fronted waist line.  This style can be made with a wide range of different sleeve types, belts and arm bands or even ribbon lacing at the forearms.

This style laces at the back.
