USA Entry 19.) Dress: 1876 Ohio State Transitional period Natural Form Gown
Category: Best Victorian Day Bustle Gown
Seamstress: Catawba Kate

I wanted to wear something different; a little sleeker without all the ruffles and trims, so I chose this fashion plate from 1876. This is a transitional phase from the early bustle to the natural form. Either could be worn. What also makes this dress special to me is that it represents my home state of Ohio. In one picture I'm holding the Ohio State flag. I chose a reversible blue and red silk satin and a plaid taffeta for the side back panels on the skirt. I have just a little white lace at the collar, sleeves and pockets. The taffeta represents the Ohio tartan. A cardinal, the Ohio state bird, is perched on the hat, a brooch at the neck is of a lady bug which is the state insect. The entire dress represents the red, white and blue of the Ohio flag. The buttons down the front of the bodice are glass stars. I thought it turned out pretty close to the inspirational photo! I wore this to the SASS convention and to a tea party. Catawba Kate

USA Entry 14.) Dress: 1885 Black and White Striped Silk Linen Visiting Dress
Category: Best Victorian Day Bustle Gown
Seamstress: Fannie Kikinshoot http://www.carolinabelles.net/

My girlfriends and I started out with 30 yards of this black and white striped silk linen and a few rules for this dress. The three of us would have 10 yards each of the silk linen to make a dress. We agreed that we could use coordinating and contrasting fabric as long as it was black or white and we could have one accessory color. The most important rule we agreed on was that we would not share our dress designs or ideas with each other until the actual event at which we'd wear them. The morning of the event we each walked out into the hallway of the hotel and saw each other for the first time in our dresses. We were like children in a candy store, ooo-ing and ahhh-ing and giggling over each others dress. This is mine.Victorian Bustle Fashion


USA Entry 13.) Dress: 1885 Late Era Afternoon Bustle Gown
Category: Best Victorian Day Bustle Gown
Seamstress: Rose Wilson

This is an 1885 late bustle era dress with waterfall over skirt. The fabric is a fuchsia and black satin brocade, the over skirt in a fuchsia satin. The dress is trimmed in dainty flowered lace from the neckline to the hem of the skirt. I love wearing this dress to Victorian tea parties with my friends...Happy Eva After
