I made this dress for our local Civil War reenactment in Yale, Oklahoma. Much of this dress was sewn by hand.
100% cotton material, black silk-like (polyester from stash) lining on lower sleeves, muslin lining for skirt, cotton print lining for bodice, black lace and black satin ribbon for trim. The pattern is Simplicity 3727.
Take off with pleats, cut-outs, insets, and futuristic prints.
