While I loved my white and black damask patterned ballgown from 2016, I wanted to make something even bigger, more elaborate, and in general. I always try to top my previous creation. I hope you love this as much as I do! I sewed this using a standard sized 34 X 26 mannequin I purchased on Ebay for $35 and never tried it on until I was completely finished. There are two petticoats under this dress but something additional needs to be added as the front is very heavy. My sewing machine was very displeased with that many layers of taffeta, but by some miracle, no needles were broken.

There's good news for you, they actually sell the pattern to that dress: www.ebay.com/itm/Butterick-Dre… Perfect opportunity to learn to sew if you don't all ready :D

This is the green one: www.ebay.com/itm/PATTERN-SIMPL…

This is the bodice for the white one, skirt is same as the other: www.ebay.com/itm/Truly-Victori…

The truly victorian line of patterns is the best ever for custom fit measurements.
