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.
