The dress was only the second dress that I sewed for living history. I have come a long way, but this outfit is still fun to wear. It is of small paisley print on a small (period) corduroy. You cannot see it here but there is a black braid around the jacket, pagoda sleeves and hem. I will wear this dress this Friday for the Virginia 150th Digital Legacy Project at the Farmville/Prince Edward Community Library. This picture was taken in my foyer.
