So, I’m starting at the beginning with something that was finished before the December 31st due date. I made this outfit for “The Destruction of the Tea” or the Boston Tea Party at the Old South Meeting House. It was a bear! Got it done, though 🙂
The Challenge: Starting Simple?
Fabric: Linen Like in Picante from Jo-Anns (washable linen!)
Pattern: JP Ryan’s Robe a l’Anglaise
Year: 1773 ish
Notions: 3 hook and eyes
How historically accurate is it? Fairly. Women would probably be wearing this outfit made out of fabric with a pattern on it.
Hours to complete: Too many to count, haha
First worn: December 16th, 2012
Total cost: Maybe $60 in materials?
