TV240 - 1860's Ball Gown Skirt


Score: 5.00 (votes: 1)
1

This skirt is an original design based on elements and ideas in use during the 1850's and 1860's. The top skirt is pulled up in swags, revealing a box pleated ruffle underneath. Double box pleats at the waist complete the look. If desired, contrasting fabrics may be used, or a single tone is very elegant. Garnish the swags with flowers or bows. This is a very elegant skirt, that is also easy to make. Made out of cotton calico, this pattern is a nice "country" ball gown and picnic dress. Richer materials and elaborate trims make this a skirt fit for a high society evening. This skirt fits best over TV141 Cage Crinoline.

    A very lovely pattern which produces a good looking skirt. Easy to follow instructions. Small things to be careful about: make sure that the box pleats and swags line up, at least just in the front -- i was not terribly careful and so I ended up being bothered by it. Also, there's room to have the swags be pleated even tighter, if you like that kind of look. Overall though, very adaptable to waist/hoop sizes, easy to make, and pretty.
