Yesterday was photo shoot day with one of my favorite girls, Angie, wearing one of my favorite gowns, the 1880s giant green bustle dress. I can’t wait to share the “official” photos with you, showcasing Tavistock Victorian Button Boots, but for now, here are a couple behind-the-scenes preview shots:
We shot at the Sparks Museum’s antique train, on Victorian Square, here on our home turf. We decided on a Steampunk styling, to go with all the nitty-gritty gears and goodness of the old locomotive.
More to come, promise!

How beautiful! Your posts about this wonderful gown make me yearn for having a precious darling like this of my own. May I ask though, as a total newbie to long bustle gowns, what is it like to walk in one, especially seeing it has a train? Do you carry the train in your hand when you walk, or do you let it sweep the ground? I'd like to make a nice trained 1875/6 gown one day, but I'm afraid of people stepping on it and the train getting dirty…
Thanks very much and I'm very much looking forward to your future projects!:-)
