1880s Cotton Calico Day Dress,

**I took photos with several different camera settings, so the colors will vary.
Fabrics: 100% cotton, printed. 100% silk Dupioni. Cotton/linen blend (solid purple).
Trims: Polyester satin ribbon, 100% nylon lace
Hem: 41" at front
Over-Skirt: Truly Victorian #365 "1883 August Overskirt"
I absolutely love all three of these patterns. The sizing is spot on and the final silhouette is almost perfect. I rearranged the back puffs on the over skirt a bit from what is directed in the pattern, but that's the only alteration I made. I also extended the back hem of the under skirt to accommodate a larger bustle.
