I know I used the evening gown bodice, but we wanted a more modest look. Bodice from Raphael dress pattern and ball gown skirt pattern, TV240, I think. The fabric is cotton on both dresses.

Both are just lovely! What a nice shape that bodice and sleeve make, those soft sloped shoulders look so period!

Thank you, Ladies!
My dress was wearable, but not finished. So, this is actually a friend and my daughter.
I love the peacock fabric, even if I did not accentuate the bird as well as I could have.
My daughter loved going to the CW Ball and learning the dances.

I am calling my gown finished until I get annoyed with the uneven back. LOL!
