Another Civil War-era ball gown- this one I'm currently sewing. I've been slightly tweaking the design as I sew it, partly because material availibility and partly from expirementation.
Anyways, here's the specs:
-Full period-authentic undergarmets (chemise, drawers, corset, stockings)
-4 Hoop petticoat with ruffle trim
-Full, gathered petticoat with bottem ruffle and shape padding
-White underskirt with white, red, and red plaid ruffles
-White overskirt with scoop hemline with red plaid trim and bows, white rose centers
-White bodice with off-shoudler neckline, plaid trim on collar and waistline, white lace and marroon braid trim, plaid bows with white rose and red flower centers, large plaid bow at back waist
-Red and white rose head piece
I'll be posting photographs of the gown when I finish it!
