Sorry for the lousy photo. The lighting sucked. This was the best angle in my little room. Also, this is very plain but I may add some trim once the bodice and over skirt are done. Hopefully, by that point, I will have a name for this new outfit for the mantle.
What the item is: under skirt. A dull under skirt. Very utilitarian! It was made to fit the challenge and to go with the mantle I made two years ago and haven’t worn yet.
The Challenge: #2 blueFabric: cotton
Pattern: TV 201
Notions: 2 buttons for closures.
How historically accurate is it? I’d guess about 90%. The buttons are modern and I can only guess if the weight, weave and dyes are correct.
Hours to complete: 10-mostly hemming. It is a very easy pattern to whip up.
First worn: not yet
Total cost: @$10
It doesn’t look to bad with the purple bodice. Options.
I will be making a blue skirt for another dress…as yet unnamed…and a purple skirt for the Lilac Dream dress from the same pattern so I think I will go into assembly line mode and make them both at the same time.
