The Victorians added a dog-leg closure to their front closing dresses so that the skirt closed off to the side, instead of front center. If you are purchasing a made-to-order Victorian dress from my shop and would like a dog-leg closure, please add this listing to your cart when purchasing.

A dog-leg closure can be added to the following dress:
