1860s/Civil War Era Ballgown
Last Updated: 01-21-2010
I made this gown specifically for the Belles & Rebels ball waaaay back in 2000. I went straight off the Butterick pattern, without trying to make it historically accurate, as this was one of my first historical gowns. ^^ I took quite a few pictures of the gown on a mannequin, but I only have one of me actually wearing the thing! :p I never wore it again afterward, which was a shame, but tends to happen when you make something specifically for a one time event. I recently sold the dress on ebay.
