USA Entry 61.) Dress: 1870's Purple Ball Gown
Category: Best Victorian Ball Gown
Category: Most Beautiful Bustle Dress in the World
Seamstress: MH

This is a late 1870's ball gown that started with 2 pieces of fabric. About 3.5 yards total of a beautiful, beaded panel and an amazing, silk velvet in a midnight purple. All the other fabrics and accessories had to be dyed to match this rich hue. Though this gown is several years old, it is still one of my favorites, and I still feel like the belle of the ball whenever I wear it... MH

USA Entry 60.) Dress: The Lady Dragon Bustle Gown
Category: USA Best Victorian Gothic Bustle Dress
Category: Most Beautiful Bustle Dress in the World
Seamstress: Madame Kat

Today I am submitting a gown designed by Lady LaSalle and made by me, called 'The Lady Dragon.' I was inspired to make a gown for the Dracula's Ball (a gothic event in Philadelphia), and this is the result. This natural form era bustle gown is made of black taffeta, black dragon and phoenix brocade satin, and black lace. Underskirt has two rows of pleats topped by scalloped lace and short lace; the overskirt has a pointed front panel of brocade satin bordered by scalloped lace with side panels of black taffeta edged in scalloped lace and short lace; the back of the overskirt is "coffin" draped in the brocade; the evening bodice is made of black taffeta and the brocade with brocade pleats and scalloped lace around the neck and sleeves with the back tail in a simple split to showcase the coffin draping. So far I have worn this gown to the Dracula's Ball, a funeral, a walk in the park, and a wedding. It is quite versatile for my gothic lifestyle. Madame Kat

USA Entry 58.) Dress: 1876 Godey's Centennial Ball Gown.
Category: USA Best Victorian Ball Gown
Seamstress: YS

This dress was inspired by the July 1876 Godey's fashion plate. The dress was made for SASS 2008 Convention theme "Centennial Ball." In the Godey's Fashion Plates 1838-1880 this dress is described to be "Evening dress of pink silk. The underskirt is trimmed with plaitings on the front, plain train. Polonaise of India muslin; low neck, trimmed with garlands of roses and foliage and puffs and Valenciennes lace. Bertha of lace and flowers; pink ribbon sash"I made my dress with dark blue satin, dark blue brocade, dark blue sheer trimmed with beads and embroidered flowers, dark blue velvet ribbon trim, black lace, black buttons, and red and white roses with beading in between. Truly Victorian patterns were used to make this dress. The skirt is a TV216 1875 Parisian Trained Skirt, and the bodice is a TV416 1875 Ball gown Bodice modified to button up the sides under the arms. My goal was to meet the Centennial Ball theme by making a Red, White and Blue Dress... YS

USA Entry 57.) Dress: 1870's Red Taffeta and Velvet bustle Outfit.
Category: USA Most Beautiful Day Dress
Seamstress: chightimber from Ebay's WebStore:"High Timber Dry Goods."

I made this dress when I had an opportunity to portray a Denver Colorado Madame, Jenny Rogers. I have portrayed her several times, and hope to do more. Again, this dress was made from recycled items. The skirt from several old drapes, the top from a beautiful piece of satin from the thrift store. LOTS of trims and lace, handmade roses and ribbons, and the hat to match... CS
