Notes: Begun in February 2007 and finished in March 2007. I used less than five yards of 45″ wide fabric, although the pattern envelope calls for eight yards. I did have to piece a part of the skirt, but that was because my fabric was in two separate lengths. Main reference was Costume in Detail by Nancy Bradfield.
