i love the idea of historic garments made from the “wrong” fabric and I love camouflage/military styles, so I decided to combine the two!
I used a Truly Victorian pattern for the bodice and the overskirt but altered the bodice so that I could wear it without a corset – much as I love corsetry, this outfit was to wear to a festival, so comfort was the order of the day!
The skirt is a modern day fishtail pattern but I felt it was a bit saggy by itself, so I made a fishtail underskirt to wear with it.
camouflage cotton, dupion silk, lots of russian braid and bullion fringe
