I've got some early shots of my new work ensemble. It's based on a pattern from The World of Fashion in winter of 1852 that I found in Patterns of Fashion. I added the skirting myself and left it much more open than the norm to give it some personal choices. I had it finished enough to wear today for a test drive and it went great! Everyone really loved my new outfit and I'm super pleased with the fit and general look of it compared to the standard around town. You can also see the beginnings of the living room remodel in these shots too. More to come later.
