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.
The Challenge: 9 Flora and Fauna
Fabric: 100% cotton
Pattern: 253 Folkwear
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
