Revealed! The mass Masquerade Ball Project!

Finally, I will reveal my idea and my final sketches for the Fox themed Halloween bustle ball gown!!

It has taken me forever to draw anything suitable, but here we are.

The bodice and overskirt are going to be in this fantastic fabric that I found on

The bottom ruffle is going to be in a black silk to match the black gloves I plan to wear.

Around the bottom of the overskirt, and around the top of the bodice I plan on using a very short cream colored fringe to give not only the look but feel of a fox, but to keep it sleek so as short as i can find it. I also plan on finding some very nice antiquey looking lace appliques to go down the front, and a heavier flat lace to go on top of the fringe around the over skirt.
The grand parlor skirt will be in a cream silk, most likely another taffeta.

Hooray for providing these patterns.

I plan to finally start this gown in July. Many updated to come!


  1. Oooooh….so exciting! And you are ahead of Lauren and I in that you have picked out your fabric already! That fabric is so gorgeous, but I am a little dubious about the fringing (I hate fringing :-P )
    Are you doing a mask too?

  2. I am indeed going to do a mask! A detailed beautiful little thing. Im still on the fence about the fringe too, I might just pick a lace or soemthing, but it does need detail in those areas. If you have any suggestions let me know!

  3. Now that’s what I call a tremendous blog. Beautifully written.
