SO I have been wanting old timey clothes forever. And what a better time to sew them because I'm going to a Rasputina show july 30th and needed something fun to wear. I have taken a few fashion design classes but nothing too serious. I never use a tape measure, pins, a dress form, or patterns. I kind of just put the fabric on me, and cut. I design as I go. So I didn't really run across too many issues thankfully because doing things my way can get you in trouble. I always have a seam ripper handy! Anyway, here is a few pictures, I pleated the ruffle and its all part of my imaginary plantation house wife skirt. I am not sure what shirt I'll be wearing yet. We'll see. This outfit, so far has taken me around 3 1/2 hrs. Thankful that my daughter is in bed! Eventually I'll make some ms paint directions but you're probably better off seeking real instructions on youtube or something especially for the pantaloons/bloomers. Wink

The finished(?) skirt with two layers of dust ruffle.

I'm ready for hangin the laundry out in the field and enjoying a cup of earl grey under the willow tree with my lovely bloomers stretched across my bodacious bottom.

Your "dust ruffle" is great. I'm looking forward to the shirt.

Look twice, buy once. Nooooo
Look twice, decide I can make one instead.

I'm a sucker for pantaloons and old timey skirts, and I'm totally amazed at your self-drafted result! Amazing!

What a fun skirt. Rasputina is the perfect occasion to dress up in totally wild and fun ways. I'm interested to see what you decide to pair it with, it looks like you're going to have a lot of different options to choose from Smiley.

Stop being so damned positive. Staring at the sun only blinds some one. By only looking at the positive, you miss an entire beautiful world of shadows and colors. Don't be overly negative, be realistic. The world is so much more complex and beautiful that way.
