Civil War Costume

I've decided to try out having a blog. I'm not very good at writing so it will be mostly photos of my sewing projects. This first post is of my Civil War costume which I have been working on since about September last year.


Chemise




















Drawers





















Corset





















Hoop Skirt (not a very good picture but it is the only one I have)




















Petticoat



















And I'm currently working on the gown to go over it all.

hi Livi, here's a really cool quiz you can do... I did it, and found out I was Mr. Darcy! Andy did it too... he was Elizabeth. How scary. It's pretty fun! hope it works...

Jono, Dad and I did the quiz. I was Charlotte Lucas, Dad and Jono were both Mr. Bennet.
