What was your inspiration?
We are attending the Old West Festival this year, and I wanted a cotton day dress to wear. I like the bodice I made for the Tipsy Tea, but decided that I wanted a shorter over skirt. I use TV303 - Side draped over skirt. In the photo of the back view, I have the tails of my bodice tucked up into the back of the bodice. This way, I can wear it and show the detail of the back of the overskirt. I still need to make my hat. More pics to come.
What are you most proud of?
This may be, by far, my favorite Victorian costume to date. The cotton & poly/cotton material have a better wearing ease than the suiting material I used for my Tea Ensemble.
