So, I made another dress for my school's second annual Victorian Ball. This year, it was the bustle period we were working on. I spent 3-4 weeks on the dress. It was tiring, took 2 zippers (I broke one), and almost 10 yds of fabric. I'm so glad it's over. The ball was great and I had a date this year. I made his vest out of left-over material from my skirt. He kept saying how he couldn't dance that well, but by the end we were waltzing, lol Smiley

Here's one of the professional photographs. As usual I look like I'm about to blink. Doesn't it look like a dorky prom picture? haha

This picture does him no justice. But it shows the buttons. They are vintage buttons from who knows when.

Thanks for looking Smiley
