OMG. If I could pick a dress and say "This one!" it would be this dress...the ONLY change I'd make would be the inverted V in the back so you could see more of the lacing. Well, and make it pink or red or something not so bridal.

But this one.

Oh yeah, I can very much see you in that dress. But in pink, of course. :)

I'd need to see the front to make sure, but that looks an awful lot like the mid-Victorian era patterns Laughing Moon Mercantile puts out. Mantua Makers has some also, but they're notorious for taking their dear sweetass time in delivering.

Corsets aren't that hard to make. Blue ought to be able to go through, and if you're pressed to find spiraled steel boning, 36" cable ties are an adequate substitute.

The skirt is just cartridge-pleated; easy enough, and the corset all you'd need to do is make it out of a good coutil or canvas, and face it with matching fabric from the skirt.

I wish I was closer. That wouldn't be hard to draft up at ALL.

Heeeee! If you were closer, I'd totally take you up on that, dear. I have NO doubt your drafting skills would totally kick that in the butt.

Not sure how long you've got - corsets really are not that difficult to make. The last one I made, I think took me about six hours from cut to compression. The Laughing Moon patterns are well documented and not too frustratingly complex.

The worst part of that, in my opinion, would be the cartridge pleats. Millions and millions and millions of cartridge pleats.

Millions and millions and millions and millions and...
