A Lovely Civil War Evening Gown

I started this dress over a year ago. I was really excited about it - I knew it was going to turn out just lovely, but then life happened, as it tends to do, and the dress got put aside, for another time. Finally, a few days ago, that other time rolled around. I remember about the dress, managed to find it, among my unfinished projects, and realized that it was a lot closer to completion that I had remembered. It didn't take long to finish it up, and I had a lot of fun. It was one of those projects that turned out just like I had hoped it would - maybe even better. It is made of an iridescent lilac taffeta, trimmed with blue binding and white rosettes. I love the tabs on the skirt and the adorable puffy sleeves! It's too bad I don't have anywhere to wear this dress. I decided to put it up for sale on Ebay. You can find the listing at I made this dress from Simplicity pattern 2881.
