I am so pleased with how this turned out. I don't think I've ever felt more like a fashion plate! It's definitely not perfect - the bodice has a bunch of wrinkles, and four of the seams inside the bodice are not actually finished. But it makes me feel so grand and elegant. And for once, I think I got the hair right! Now I need to plan more events that are okay for wearing trains.

Speaking of which, I originally wasn't going to try it on before I packed it. Thank goodness I did. Not only did I wind up taking the bust in about 2" more, but I was also originally going to wear this only with a very large bum pad. The skirt is so heavy, though, that when I put it on, it looked like I had nothing there at all! So I actually wound up wearing it with my giant bum pad over my lobster-tail bustle, and I still managed to have a little train! I really like the silhouette it gives, and I think I'm going to have to try it out with my other bustle gowns as well.

The original inspiration:
