So I'm thinking of making a crossover front ballgown. But I'm not quite sure if this sort of thing actually existed, seems to me the crossover bodice was mostly worn as a more casual dress. At least I have never seen an extant garment that was intended for evening wear with a crossover bodice. Have any of you seen any crossover front dresses used as ballgowns and do u think it would be un period to do so?

I love those prints, especally the white and red dress. thanks for sharing these! But it seems to me the one is an overdress and the other is actually a shawl wrapped in a crossover fashion. then again i could be wrong.
The pictures that I've included that are click-able have all been uploads from my computer, rather than links to photos on a web page. I've been looking to see if there is another way to do it, but haven't found anything about it in the help files of this forum.

Thank you Barbara. These images are hosted on my Photobucket. I know Steph has been able to help me in the past with it, but I have no idea how she did it. I'm willing to learn! Photobucket is the only way I know how to share images on line....
is actually probably a shawl that was cut and made into a dress. See how the sleeves are clearly separate and puffy? I have seen extant examples (lord knows where) of dresses that were made this way, from one or two of the shawls.
Aside, while we're talking about code: does anyone know how to make a link in the text? In HTML, you'd use <a href="url">click me!</a>, but I don't really know BBCode at all and I can't figure it out.
