I made this dress for a school project. The undergarments that go with it were posted earlier today.

It looks very well made. That color looks good on you (or whoever it is in the picture.)

Thanks all! I used a modified version of the Past Patterns 1850-1860 gathered bodice and the 1850-1863 skirt. and the color is a more dusky blue in person, but i kinda like the bright blue! Smiley
