Civil War Costumes by Zulma-san Civil War Costumes by Zulma-san
Civil war costumes for a civil war ball made by myself and :iconcormacusscripsit:

After weeks of hard work, I, at last, finished my own gown. My first true sewing project which I accomplished from A to Z by myself. I have to admit that I am a little proud. :blush:

The vest :iconcormacusscripsit: is wearing was made both by him and me. I finished the buttonholes at 3am on the day of the ball!!

The photo was taken on the Island of Assateague. I must thank Tuan :heart: who took AMAZING shots of us in costumes. Some more of his work can be seen here: [link]

Please do not use without permission! Thank you!

Feel free to comment.
I :heart: comments.

Crinoliiiiine! J'adore! J4aime beaucoup la superposition des tissues! C'est superbe!

Gah.. J'ai dit que j'allais faire un break de costumes cette année mais j'ai une crino de 4 m qui m'attend T_T Damned!
Le costume masculin est carrément chouette aussi! Faudrait que j’apprenne à coudre pour d'autres personnes que moi sinon j'habillerai jamais mon zhomme !

Honnêtement, période ou pas, j'utilise souvent des matières synthétiques, et je vais aller à l'Opéra Garnier en Juin avec la tournure de Christine Daae qui reste quand même un costume de scène inspiré du 19e... Mais je m'en fiche! Moi je vais bien rigolayyy hahaaaaaaa :D

The photography reminded me a bit of this painting by Monet; "Madame Monet with her son" or "Madame Monet with Umbrella".

:aow: Génial ce bleu turquoise ! Il y a une gaze brodé sur la robe et le manche, non ?
Quand à la veste de monsieur, elle ressort mieux sur l'autre photo.

^.^ Merci j'adore le turquoise :)

Oui en fait les manches et la jupe ont une couche supplementaire d'organza brode. :)

Cette couche supplémentaire est une très bonne idée. Elle donne un peu de contraste à la robe et les broderies sont très jolies. ^^
