Ball Gowns Galore

What's that you say? There's a Victorian Soiree? On saturday?

Why, I haven't a thing to wear! I suppose I'd better get sewing...

Though I do have a perfectly lovely bustle, I'm going with Natural Form. I have some lovely periwinkle/violet silk and cream silk with pintucks tucked away in my fabric stash. Yay for 50% off Red Tag home-dec fabric. Conveniently, I also already have a fistful of Truly Victorian patterns, which you can see here:

I'm planning to make cute, bitty ball gown sleeves out of pointe d'esprit, maybe with a ruffle. I haven't figured out all the embellishment yet, but I'm thinking lots of self-ruffles.
