It's a two piece costume with a bodice that's fully boned in the front and laces in the back. It has a skirt attached to the bodice. The under skirt is the same material as the bodice and fits over a full crinoline. I was wearing a white peasant blouse and black gloves and of course jewelry to complete the look. I made this outfit myself and am very pleased with the results. And this is made from a pattern I drafted myself -first time ever. Tell me what you think!

Wow that looks really good! What is the pattern on the fabric? You have done a fantastic job Smiley

The pattern is little people throughout. Some are riding on horses, pretty cute though. The pattern is called "Persia", but I think it's discontinued. I bought a whole roll of this fabric from a thrift store for only $20. I have a load of it left.

This is absolutely beautiful!  I love it when more realistic fabrics are used in the construction of olde time clothing.  Very wel done!  And your hair is lovely, I've always wanted curls!

I can tell you, Fall is composed of

1 part dead fish smell
1 part wet leaves
1 part arctic chilled air (not winter chilled variety)
2 parts crunchy walking
a pinch very cold rain
some apples you picked yourself
a few very still moments
a good deal of inner reflection

cool idea.

I'll bet you didn't have trouble with encountering anyone else dressed as an 18th century noble woman.  ; )
