Short post, and a bit late, but I made a walking skirt!
It's pretty simple, but practical and comfortable. Photos of Cas wearing it soon to follow (hopefully!)
The Challenge: #15: The Great Outdoors
Fabric: Black linen/cotton blend
Pattern: Janet Arnold's Patterns of Fashion 1860-1940, 1880s skirt
Notions: Black cotton thread, two hooks and bars, two buttons, 120" half inch polyester horsehair braid
How historically accurate is it? Very, minus the polyester and the fact that the buttons are plastic. 90-95%?
Hours to complete: Didn't count, maybe 15 since the handmade the buttonholes and hand-stitched the hem facing.
First worn: Not worn yet
Total cost: ~$35
