Homecoming 2008

Instead of buying an extremely revealing and skimpy dress for my high school dance like all the other girls at my school, I decided to wear an 1840s dress! My date was appropriately attired in his Civil War uniform which he modified for Mexican American War so we'd be in the same period. I actually got a lot of compliments on my dress, and had a really great time! Even though modern "dancing" is nothing like contra dancing!

At the dance...

I love the bodice and sleeves on your dress. I wish more dresses for prom were things that are not skimpy and cookie cutter and poor quality. Bravo!
