Watson's Mill ready to launch



Here are two of the volunteers in their costumes. The era is 1880. I had tremendous fun creating these outfits, which were complete with corset sand bustles!
The mauve outfit is wool and rayon stripes and the check was made with cotton upholstery fabric. You never know where you will find the right fabric! I have often used fabrics from the drapery department.

I think your clothes are fantastic! How do you get the details correct from those era's so as to make them genuine copies?
