First, my brand new corded petticoat. It's ~94 inches in circumference.
Next, the work dress. The lady who makes the dresses charges $150 for a dress with no back stitching anywhere on the whole thing. My sleeve has come undone, but I really don't feel like fixing it.
Below you can see the weird tilt of the waistline that makes the dress rather unflattering. Just imagine it with the apron we're all required to wear. Ugh.
Sacky looking I think.
And now you've all shared the horrors that are the dresses made for the state park. The best part, the woman's little page on the the official park website states that they are "1870s Pioneer Dresses." Last I checked the heyday of the "pioneer" age was more 18302-40s. Fortunately I have started patterning my dress and and will be doing a bodice mock up soon. Really makes me sad that this woman makes so much money making such shoddy examples of women's clothing.
