1890s Ball Gown

I apparently have a thing for taking an inspiration image and making it up in totally different fabrics than the original. This dress was based on an 1890s gown in pink and cream. I loved the dress, but the color scheme was just not for me. Acid green and black were also common colors in the 1890s, however, and they are much more my style! I used the Truly Victorian 1895 Ripple Skirt pattern for the skirt and draped the bodice myself. I think the sleeves came from Period Costumes for Stage and Screen, with some modifications. My corset pattern also came from that book as well. I’ve never felt more glamorous than in this dress!
