|1870 Brown Silk Day Gown - two piece|
This is my finished ensemble. It took about seven days to complete from cutting to wearing. I used the Burda Foundation skirt (see my prior post "Burda Foundation Skirt") with my prior Civil War bodice patten (see "Flirting around with Civil War Fashions"). Lastly, I used self fabric trim to keep costs down. Total expense was approximately $30 for everything, but as all the fabric, buttons, and thread was already in my stash, technically it did not cost me anything!
