Challenge #16: Separates


A quick petticoat sewn at the military camp one weekend.... and it happened to be so dark (and I was fool enough not to mark the sides) that I managed to sew the back part not only upside down but also inside out.... but it will be easy to fix... someday...

Fabric: cotton sateen - dyed by me ( was meant to be much darker, but it's ok like it is)

Pattern: basic 18th century petticoat

Year: 18th century

Notions: linen thread, black cotton tape for the waistband

How hist. acc: pattern is ok, cotton not so much (for a camp follower), sewing ok (hand sewn, period sewing techniques) and was sewn at the camp - so only sunlight and campfire as lightning

Hours to complete: just a few - plus the time I'll use re-doing it... 

First worn: just for the picture

Total cost: 15€ (i quess - stash
