The Hopeless Romantics Invade Gaskell Ball, 1830s Style!

There were so many beautifully made gowns at Gaskell Ball. Most of us used the same pattern, but I loved all the variations in fabric choice and trimming.

We made a lovely rainbow!

And had a ton of fun!

Here I am with the other pale-colored ladies.

Kim had such a cute doll-like shorter dress.

Image

Natalie of Frolicking Frocks looked just like a fashion plate.

Image

Breana of Mothball Fleet had such a daring and darling color combination, with perfect piping.

Image

Elizabeth had a bodice with impressive detailing, and a padded hem.

Image

Amanda’s dress looked great in motion.

Image

Samantha had such a cute bow sash.

Image

Jean-Anne went for a bold print that worked out great.

Image

Jenny looked elegant in white.

Image

Christina of The Laced Angel used an old sari, to great effect.

Monica had charming little fans and tucks on her dress.

Kaila had really lovely piping and pleats.

Cassandra’s dress reminded me of a Disney princess.

You’ve seen mine, so here’s a silly photo.
