Lost Souls dress

This is a dress based on an 1874 Harper's Bazar fashion plate.  The original showed a black dress, and I was in love!

  1. Ok, another favorite. This one is so very elegant. You look like a high society lady from Boston who comes from ooooollld money (not nuveau riche) You know, the kind that has been in the family for centuries. Your elegantly aristocratic bearing does not come from going to a boarding school as a girl; but rather is in the very fiber of your being. This kind of elegance cannot be taught. A true and gracious lady. One who is comfortable in the finest drawing rooms of New England or dancing her heart out with her husband at the grandest of clubs.

    Ok, I'll stop now. You just look so AWESOME in this dress!!!
