Purple Civil war Dress (Butterick 6694)

So i finally got around to posting some picture of the dress i made for my friend, please forgive how rumpled the dress is, I was sewing in a hurry and didn't have time to iron it out.

This is what i did to lift the slight train it had.. it was SO pretty but train's are impractical for dancing.
And forgive the messy room and hall!

This was before the buttons where put on.

without the undersleeves.
I also Made myself a blue ballgown but i didn't take any pictures of the process, I'm having trouble uploading a picture of the dress's finished and us wearing them... I'll try to figure it out and get one up soon.


  1. How pretty! What fabric is this, Cami?

    1. Thank you!
      It was a very cheap cotton that we found at a local textile company.
