Evie, A Front View

In all those pictures of Evie and the Returning Heroes Ball that I’ve posted recently, I don’t think there were any good shots of the front of my dress. So for now, a quick post showing the front of the gown with the double rosette to match the skirt and the graduated ruffle showing itself from under the bertha.

    That’s really beautiful. And I don’t mean just the dress!

    Now to change the subject just a little. In your former post, as you were standing on the stairs, the crinoline pushed the whole skirt back like a bell. And I’ve always wondered something, how does one sit in it? Does it collapse somehow?
