Making My Ball Gown

My friend Mrs. R helped me sew (I helped her is more accurate) a ball gown to wear to the civil war ball. It is lovely!! We made from a old prom dress.
Pinning the hem to see where she needed to sew a new hem!

Ruffle over skirt!

Here is how I helped, I finished the crinoline.

Stay tuned for more photos of this dress!
