Category: Most Beautiful Bustle Dress In the WORLD
Category: Best Victorian Day Bustle Gown
Seamstress: RL of North Carolina

Model is my daughter, Christine, whom the bustle gown was made for. I made this gown specifically for an outing at the Biltmore Estate, here in Asheville, NC. The house was completed about 1898 by George Vanderbilt. The dress is 1880 natural form, and was made using an original fashion plate as inspiration. Fabrics are cotton. The hat is commercially purchased, steamed and re-formed. TV patterns for bodice (modified significantly) and skirt. Overskirt is of my own design. We enjoy going to annual tea outings with the Carolina Belles, and other local Victorian events.

USA Entry 22.) Dress: 1878 Black Velveteen and Coral Silk Dinner Dress
Category: Most Beautiful Bustle Dress In the WORLD
Seamstress: Fannie Kikinshoot http://www.carolinabelles.net/

Madams were some of the wealthiest women in the Victorian era. They may not have been the most "proper" ladies but they were some of the best dressed ladies in town, because they had the money to dress that way. This dress is made of black velveteen, coral silk and azure satin. The fabric that makes the peacock tail was the inspiration for this dress. Whenever I wear this dinner dress I become Madam Peacock.

USA Entry 21.) Dress: 1886 Butterfly Ball gown
Category: Best Victorian Ball Gown In the WORLD
Seamstress: Lady Leigh (Ebay's: house_of_poleigh_naise.) Lady Leigh's Ebay Store: http://stores.shop.ebay.com/House-of-PoLeigh-Naise__W0QQ_armrsZ1

This 1886 ball gown was inspired by a combination of two fashion plates which Lady Leigh helped put together for me. The gown is done in a shimmery, lavender peu de soi edged with white appliques dotted with pearls. The underskirt is a fabulous purple lace from France with a leaf and flower design all sewn with tiny purple pearls. Carefully placed on the folds of the over skirt is a silver butterfly. I've worn this gown to the ball at the SASS convention, and to a local Victorian Ball.
