Turning of the Century

I finally got around to taking some quick pictures of the outfit I made for this year’s Edwardian Ball. Sadly, I had double-lung pneumonia at the time, and although I did attend, I was not able to fully lace myself into a corset. I opted to use the buttons and lace it up the front instead, as you can see in the third image. As a result, do not have any good pictures of this as it was meant to be worn. As soon as my lungs are clear, I’ll make sure to play dress up and get some 🙂

I’ll also take some images of the inside and out. Look for those soon!
