1883 dinner gown, progress shot.  Used Truly Victorian TV462, modified to add a peplum at the back.  Overskirt is TV326, the Hermione overskirt, hitched up a bit in the front to more closely match the transition to the late bustle period.  Foundation skirt is taken from Janet Arnold, with miles and miles and miles of lace basted onto it.

I like the sleeves of the red dress and the shape of the skirts on both for the Woman in Black's dress.
