I put closures on this skirt today, so it’s done! It’s an 1890s skirt, made using TV 291, the Truly Victorian 1898 Walking Skirt pattern. The fashion fabric is a black wool, and I flat-lined it to black cotton broadcloth. I put in a deep hem facing of cotton twill, to make the hem stand out a bit. I found the pattern to be straightforward, although there are a lot of pieces (what with the 7 gores and the hem facings for each gore).
I plan to wear this to Judy’s “Any Costume Party” in late January
The blouse in the photo is a piece I purchased a number of years ago when it was on sale at River Junction. I’ve never had the chance to wear it!
