Pink 1860’s Organza Ball Gown

The skirt from this gown was borrowed from my Kaylee dress (from the short lived TV series “Firefly” and described on this page).

Since I only attend 1 or 2 Firefly costume related events a year, I decided to make a new top so I could wear it as a civil war era ball gown. I used Truly Victorian’s 1860s Ballgown Bodice as a pattern reference. I used multiple colors of organza and I hand dyed them to get the correct shades of pink.
