I just recently decided to go to the grand bal at the Opera in Stockholm on jan 25.
The bal is called “Oskarsbalen” and are held in the honor of the Swedish king Oscar II, who reign 1872-1905, and the theme of the bal is the 1880s.
I never made anything in the bustle era before, not to say a 1880s balgown, and the only piece of costume I already own that will be suitable for this bal is a bustle (who I made for my sister). Well I guess thats is as god point to start as any.
So lets find some pretty dresses (starting with some lovely fashion plates):
Guess its time to start sewing since I now only have about 15 days to whip something together.
