Here is another angle of the dress. The belt and the collar are detachable and add to the look of the dress.
Here is an up close look at the belt and the fabric. I went with an embrodered white fabric for the belt. I thought it brought out the paisleys in the civil war day dress.
Sorry for leaving everyone hanging on the last part "Making a Civil War Dress". We are change internet providers and I have not had internet connection the last couple of days. I should be back up and running next week with some more Victorian Era Blog post. Thanks so much for following.
