1890s Ball Gown

Postby Ruthie » Mon Sep 28, 2009 1:16 pm

Here's my finished gold and lavendar 1890s ball gown. I used TV 292 and 490.
I made the full length train on the skirt with a dustruffle underneath it.

There are several alterations I'll make before the next time I wear it but I wanted to show a picture here of the final project.

Heather, I wanted to tell you how awesome your pattern was to work with! I would never have though I could make something like this. It was a blast to make and I'm already planning my next gown.
Thank you!!!!
