    I actually think this dress would be AMAZING reinterpreted in a contemporary style - cant you see it with a short, full skirt (like, 1950s meets 1860s)?

    if i make my dress a civil war era this one, with its borders in the skirt, can contain my pieced quilting and look stylish at the same time.
