Rosetta ball gown

Added May 2, 2010

Perth, Australia






This ball gown consists of a separate petticoat with velvet bodice and a shot silk taffeta skirt, and with an boned and corseted overdress with a draped bodice of ivory printed synthetic. I used Butterick 4657 for the upper bodice of the petticoat and Simplicity 9775 for the bodice of the corset but otherwise the dress is my own design.

Material Notes

velvet, shot silk taffeta, some sort of synthetic fabric for overskirt, polyester lining fabric, boning, two invisible zips, eyelets, velvet ribbon




Garment Type
Evening Wear
Polyester, Silk, Velvet

    Ah, you’re really beautiful! Would be perfect for the Nobel Price Dinner (that happens to be held in our City Town Hall that is right on my way home from work, so I tend to check out the guests every year, just passing by…). I really love the colour, it’s so rich. Bet you had a ball!

    Wow!!!! Beautiful design and colours. You look very sophisticated. I’m going to add this to my favourite and try to make one when I have the occasion (probably never – lol).
