1850s Evening ensemble

 

Worn to a Victorian Ball in Bath, May 2015.  All layers designed, made and modelled by me.

 

Cotton coutil corset based on the Norah Waugh 1860s pattern.  Cotton chemise, crinoline and petticoat.  Poly silk skirt and bodice, draped with reference to Jean Hunnisett's 'Period Costume for Stage & Screen 1800-1909'.
