I hope you are enjoying these pictures.
There are so much to period dresses and costumes and I find it very frustrating when there are only one or two close shots.
This is the back Bustle and Train to my Phantom of the Opera Wedding dress.
The train is actually attached to the bodice itself...It aided in a smoother line. Unlike the shows actual costume that is all one piece (quick change from hell) my dresses skirt is a separate piece. With a separate waist band I could control the smoothness at the waist allot better...and it is most correct for the period.
