(Ista) March plan - day dress c1800

For March I'm declaring an assault on the clothes I need for a Jane Austen festival. I'm making a 2piece skirt & top using this dress pattern from Past Patterns #031 and some fabric from my stash.
I'll have more on my blog here.

    1. This is a little conservative for me ... in that I usually love the crazy fashion plates from the time. A bit like the extreme runway ideas that nobody seems to wear in real life.

    1. I have an even better cap which I commissioned about 3 years ago. It's awesome. I'm making a black silk bonnet, and another if I get time.

    1. I love historical clothing, even when I know that this era isn't best suited to my body type.
