1850s Ball Gown Separates - Black & Gold Jacquard

The patterns used to make this particular one escape memory. I feel like it was a combination of Truly Victorian patterns. Perhaps the bodice from one and the sleeves from another? I can't remember. The skirt is just a single massive panel, one seam in the back, and everything pleated to the waistband (the bodice and skirt as separate garments).

I scored big when I found this weird fabric on a clearance table. It was like part jacquard, part brocade, with a wide border print.
