Plaid Civil War Era Plaid Dress
This dress is made entirely from a heavy weight plaid fashion fabric, which has a texture similar to wool (with a much smaller price tag)! It’s trimmed with green material of the same weight and vintage lace.
It’s a two piece ensemble, with a bodice that buttons closed at the front, and a skirt that buttons up the back. The bodice had pleated details across the bust as apposed to the more common darted bodices, these match the skirt, which has deep one inch pleats. I drafted all the patterns for this costume, and made it myself.
I have three posts about the construction process.
