18th Century Attire
My revamped 18th century attire was finished just in time for the Revolutionary War reenactment I attended this past weekend. Quite a few changes were made. The Pink Linen Skirt was lengthened (I dislike short skirts!). The Printed Cotton Jacket was taken apart in almost every spot and remade. I made it slightly larger so the stomacher could close tighter, added the slashes at the front of the jacket, and also at the center back point, lengthened the stomacher, and added eyelet holes to lace the front. And I found some pale pink ribbon at JoAnns to replace the bright pink ribbon (thanks for the advice!).
The Cap is made of Cotton Organdy from the JPRyan pattern.
I made a hip/bum roll of striped cotton to support the skirts. I like the shape it added.
