It's been a week and change since Costume College now that I'm A) suffciently recovered and B) no longer being ambushed by a victorian seaside picnic (another story for another post) I find that I finally have enough brain power to post about my white challenge entry:
This 1880's overskirt (and it's matching bodice) was made to wear with the previous challenge to the Time Travelers' Gala. It's made of a white chiffon sari with gold sequined embroidery. It went together with a minimum of fuss and I'd say it turned out pretty well.
And here is the full outfit in action. Unfortunately I didn't get many pictures of it.
The Challenge: White
Fabric: Embroidered chiffon sari

Year: Latter half of the 1880's
How historically accurate is it? Machine sewn
