That looks so great! Do you use these for any specific purpose other than the county fair? They're very beautiful.

If you haven't already, check out the patterns from trulyvictorian.com. Lots of 1880's styles and no zippers!

Totally stunning dress! Great colors on you and the shape is very slimming.

Unfortunately, I don't have many excuses to wear my costumes, but I love making them so I keep doing it and just hope that my girls will enjoy dressing up when they get older. I looked at Truly Victorian, but they're so expensive! I really can't imagine spending $45 on patterns to get a costume, especially since I often don't spend that much on the whole costume.
