Victorian Ball Gown

Sares at Loveleigh Treasures is having a "Costume Party" and a great giveaway to celebrate her birthday today June 17. Visit Sares blog and see what everyone is wearing to the PARTY!

Several years ago my husband and I were involved in some Civil War Reenacting and it was great fun! So I decided to get myself all dolled up in a Victorian Ball Gown for the costume party.

I went online and found this site Recollections.biz
and found this gown. It really makes me feel pretty and
I love to twirl in it! Yet I think it's appropriate for a more mature women.













Just love these sleeves they cover my upper arm.








This little purse is perfect!







A lady always wears gloves







And I must wear the correct under garments!


Wonderful hoop skirt!




These shoes look a little uncomfortable but stylish.






Now that I'm all dressed up it's off to Loveleigh Treasures for the party.



I'm very excited and can't wait to get there and see what everyone is wearing!
