Elisabeth-Gown by Stahlrose Elisabeth-Gown by Stahlrose
Finally, I managed to finish this gown.

It is my version of the hungarian coronation gown from the musical "Elisabeth", it should be worn on stage as well, by a hobby musical-performer.

The skirt has a 10m wide seam, and will be worn over a 5 meter wider hoop skirt, so it is too long for my own big hoop skirt that has "only" 4 meters ;)

The skirt can be attached to the bodice with hooks and eyes so that everything stays in place on stage :)

Thanks - glad to hear that, although the costume that was made for the musical was the guide :)

Also, die Perlen hab ich ganz normal im Bastelladen vor Ort gekauft. Bin mir nicht mehr sicher wo genau, der Hagebau hat bei uns ne ganz brauchbare Ecke mit vielen Perlen, auch solche Tropfen in verschiedenen Größen.

Yes, the skirt really is quite heavy, I used thick cotton jaquard, and not to forget the lace layer ...

Beautiful! you should have modelled it yourself. Its huge and sooo long! I cant imagine how they would have worn them back then - dragging them through the dirty streets?

Well, there should be worn a more bigger hoop skirt underneath than on the pictures, thats why the skirt is so long.
The original crinolines weren't that large ;)

Original gowns sometimes had trains that could be draped up with strings or hooks.

Oh. I wonder it there was ever a time when they wore something so long without the hoops? How on earth would they have walked in them and kept them from dragging in the dirt?

Well, some early renaissance gowns and empire dresses were slightly longer, but the skirts were not that full. And you can find trained skirts in almost every period.
Mostly the rich ladies wore that huge gowns with trains, in victorian times, wealthy women didn't work and didn't have to buy things like food etc, so they had no problems wearing a really enormous gown, and it even was some kind of ideal to be a little helpless and weak ... you know, the stuff like fainting a lot and so on .. so being constrained by a gown just kept that up.
Between the two bustle periods, the so called natural form was fashionable. There are stories existing that the skirts even were so narrow at the knees that women could only make small steps, and one story said that a women had to sit on a bench where she wanted to take a rest - almost the entire day because she couldn't get up alone, and no one passed by ...
I don't know if these stories are true. I've made a natural form gown myself and it was quite comfortable, and the guys I know that tried this fashion as well never had such problems *g*

Of course, the women who could not afford new gowns every season wanted to stay as fashionable as they could afford, I know about one gown that could be altered to fit day wear, dinner toilette and evening toilette by lacing up or letting down the train, taking off parts of the sleeves and so on. I don't think that the former owner would have walked in the streets with the train let down ;)

Of course, even poorer women who had to work and walk a lot didn't wear such huge gowns.

Didn't they also have a 'junk' gown/attachment underneath the trail that could collect junk on the ground instead of the gown (assuming they couldn't afford to replace to adhere to fashion)

Yes, thats true, something like that existed, and there was a special kind of braid that was attached to the hems to save the skirts - I just don't know what it is called in english ;)
