1865 Carriage Dress by pinkxxnightmare 1865 Carriage Dress by pinkxxnightmare
So here is my favorite picture of my Carriage Dress. This dress took me about a month to make. I worked on it off and on. I used a butterick civil war pattern and added and over skirt to make it look more like my inspiration plate, look in my journal for plate. I took this at the Dickens Christmas Fair. I love the way the costume turned out. It was my first attempt at Victorian clothing and I have to say I am really happy with the results.

If you would like to read more about this dress just got to my blog and check it out [link]

I love the tan and green color you used; they complement each other very nicely! Great job on finding a perfect setting to take a picture in, btw :)
