1880s Evening ensemble
Worn to a Victorian Ball in Bath, May 2015. All layers designed and made by me. Modelled by Becky Power. The final photo shows the bustle worn underneath the gown.
Cotton coutil corset adapted from a Norah Waugh pattern. Cotton drill bustle made using instructions by American Duchess. Ruffled petticoat and silk skirt and bodice mostly made with reference to Jean Hunnisett's 'Period Costume for Stage & Screen 1800-1909'. Waterfall train draped by me.
