I thought I'd post some pictures of the ballgown I just finished. It is based on this dress. Image

And the new petticoat I made to go with it

Just curious, can you remove the flowers for cleaning?

Thank you for all the compliments everyone. I really love how the ball gown turned out.
I'm not sure how often I'll get to wear it but I wanted it so I made it :D . It's funny, I keep making bustle gowns but really don't have anywhere to wear them to. If anyone has any ideas near Tucson, Az I would be happy to hear them. It gives me an excuse to make even more! ;)
Cindy, the flowers are lightly tacked on so they should be pretty easy to remove so I can clean the gown, though I have to admit that I don't relish the idea of sewing them back on.

So pretty! That lace is gorgeous. I love that you made a new petticoat for it. That needs to be my new years resolution, make a new petticoat for every dress and give my poor old one a break.
