    There are many events you can wear it, for example western events. Or your can meet other people who like those dresses and your can visit museums together. If you need a chance to wear it, you have to make it yourself ;)

    You know…i have always dreamed that i was living in the victorian era just so that i would be able to wear those elaborate victorian costumes on the street without being gaped at.

    It’s great! I still have a half-finished victorian gown that has been lying around for ages (a Simplicity one, so not as authentic, I bought it before discovering trulyvictorian ;) and seeing yours, I really think I should go ahead and finish it.

    The bustle is a seperate garment. Under the dress I wear a chemise, drawers, a corset, the bustle and a petticoat.

    This is a lovely gown. Question, please. Is the bustle arrangement in that pattern or separate? Nehmah

    Amazing work! I’ve always wanted to make a period dress just to challenge myself. I’m not sure what i’d do with it once it was made though :)

    Wonderful dress!! It does look authentic. Did you draft the pattern yourself?
