I made this without a real pattern. I cut apart a mens shirt and used it as my guide. I have a white collar and cuffs that attack with hooks and eyes to be a nurses uniform with a white apron.

This is the FIRST dress I've made myself for events!

I just barely ahd it done in time for Momorial day, and though I was the only one not in a hoop dress it was a very good day.

The monument in the picture was erected by the original WRC of wich I am a member of the newly formed Corps. August next year will be the 100'th aniversary and I need to make a 1911 dress for our celibration.

I am currently making a new day dress that I will post as soon as it's finished, well after I make the stay then the dress.



Sorry about it being a link.
Maera.
