Whew….just made it!

For the other Historical Sew Fortnightly Challenges I have rearranged my plans in order to work on the thing that best suits the challenge.  As I am on a tight schedule right now, I will have to, instead,  interpret the challenge to suit what I am working on.  For the Flora and Fauna challenge I am posting the skirt portion for the swim suit I am working on.  It is made out of 100% cotton=flora.SAM_1106

The Challenge: 9 Flora and Fauna

Fabric: 100% cotton

Pattern: 253 Folkwear

Year: 1890s

Notions: rickrack and thread

How historically accurate is it? 95% I’m not sure what fibers are in the rickrack.  I also did not opt for the more common wool….to hot for summer wear in my neck of the woods.

Hours to complete: @10

First worn: will be worn May 11

Total cost: @ $15
