1860’s Civil War Day Dress: COMPLETE!!!

Well the dress is officially done!!!

I decided to just hem the bottom of the skirt to give a double pintuck look. I am actually quite happy with the decision since I think it doesn’t make the whole gown look to much like a giant ruffle!
I also finally decided on the belt. I took some eyelet lace, trimmed off the gathered portion, hemmed the top and made it into the belt. It is a very nice contrast. I also added buttons on the inside of the bodice and so that way it closes in the front, but you can’t see the buttons on the outside!
This gown is now for sale on my Etsy shop so check it out! Here are the finished pictures plus some extras that are not on my shop!
