I actually got it done fairly early in the year, which considering the house repairs was probably just as well. There isn't a lot of the correct underpinnings; just a slip, but it still looks fine. The corset didn't happen due to being sidetracked by 1776 instead. Luckily it's not as necessary as it would have been with a summer outfit.
|The slip; with drawstring instead of the elastic I'd normally use.|
|The skirt; yes it needs a press.|
|The shirt with grandpa collar|
|The jacket worn with the rest that I'd already made by this point; and photobombing cat|
|The complete outfit; though the boots aren't part of it. Don't I look just right? Ignoring the totally incongruous parts of the image (boots, car, motorbike, plastic bucket and trampoline)|
All in all I'm pretty happy with my efforts though I do need to work on the fit of the jacket next time I do something like this.
This year I'm planning on completing the 1776 outfit; including the little things like gloves and stockings etc.
