My old camp dress was falling apart at the seams and was too big, and didn't fit at ALL:

BEWARE: OLD AND UGLY DRESS


At Last! I made a new dress.

The similarities:
same pattern for the sleeves.
same buttons
(will use) the same apron

The differences:
New bodice pattern
I know how to fit bodices now
New skirt pleating/gathering

 Oh, that and the fact I'm wearing a newer/better corset.

Good attention to historical detail it appears. Lots of Civil War re-enactors in my state (SC) so I see a lot of period clothing quite often. Great job! Very clever name the "seamshistoric" too.

Looks very nice!

My fiancee does 18th century reenactments and I think I may be joining him this year.

How long did it take you to make the new dress? Is the fabric specifically a reproduction fabric or something else you found that works?
