Kaye Dacus asked on her blog what gown we would wear if we were invited to a “Celebration of Historical Costumes” Ball.  I chose an elegant Victorian era gown (1878) in French blue which I think is just divine!

The dress features a Bertha collar and Chrysanthemum style sleeves, a dropped waist,  and a Fantail skirt with a train. The Bengaline silk gown is overlayed with French embroidered lace and adorned with Aquamarine briolettes, blue freshwater pearls, jewels and hand beading.



This exquisite gown was created by Frocks of Ages.
