This was made for Costume College 2006 from Truly Victorian patterns.  I used the Parisian Trained Skirt and the 1872 Vest Basque.  This is still one of my favorite gowns I have ever made.  Trimming the skirt was a lot of fun and I enjoyed playing with the dimensions of the trims in layers.

This dress had another incarnation when I made a ballgown bodice in 2008 for one of the Victorian Grand Balls in Pasadena.

Many thanks to Koshka The Cat for the above photo.
