This is the *almost* finished skirt. ^^^^^^It has a draw string waist which I intend to remedy a wee bit. This skirt is to be used for presentations to 8th Graders at my old Middle School. I come in during the Spring and give a presentation on Women's Life during the time of the Civil War. This skirt is going to be used for girls to try on so they can experience things a little better :) I am going to keep the drawstring waist but I intend to disguise it by some strategic pleating and seams that will also make it usable for any reenactments my mother and I should go to. (The sash in the photo is not a real sash, but a piece of scrap black fabric. I just needed something to "complete the picture".lol.)
Some time later I will add a more complete "Civil War Reenacting on a Tight Budget". This will show the hoop, bustle pad and chemise(s) That I made work. TOODLES!
