I finished my dress made from Simplicity 1818 over April vacation. The skirt came out a bit longer than is easy to walk in, so I might make a tuck under one of the ruffles to shorten it, but I don't know.... Any suggestions?

I also got a dress form as a gift from a friend ! its awesome to actually have a real form instead of using a decoration one padded with batting.

I'll get pics up after my event on May 18th- It's the 150th celebration of rebuilding the common after a large fire swept through, and I'm portraying a 16 year old girl. I need to do some research on what one would think of the war, religion, boys, etc. If you know anything, or where I might find the info, it would be much appreciated!
