I’m clearing out some of my old reenactment gowns that I no longer wear. This one is sort of a hodge-podge of sizes so bear with me. The bodice trimmed with pink gathering fits those measurements. A few years ago, I attempted to remake the military style bodice and the skirt to fit new measurements. The military bodice shows signs of being let out-especially in the back, see photos. Besides being let out, the military bodice is trimmed with black silk and red ribbons and the buttons are all cotton velvet. The front bib closes on the left with hooks and eyes. A few more eyes could be added to the bodice to make it lay smoother-they hooks are already on the bib. The bodice is piped around the arm hole, neckline, and waistband. None of the interior seams are finished. The pink bodice is smaller and has not been let out, so it still looks new. I think I wore it for maybe 4-5 hours about 7-8 years ago. It also has piping at the arm hole, neckline, and waist. There are two darts on either side of the hook and eye closure. It comes with a belt that is made from the same silk ribbon the bodice is trimmed in. It has a rosette hiding where the belt closes with 3 hooks and eyes. The belt is lined with a brown silk/cotton blend. The skirt is double box pleated around the waist. It currently has a white cotton waistband instead of a self fabric because I couldn’t find my extra fabric when I was remaking it. The skirt hem is faced with brown cotton sateen and has polyester petersham ribbon skirt lifter ties tacked in around the hem. These can be taken out and replaced if you desire. The skirt also has a white cotton pocket on the left side of the skirt. Waist from end to end. No hooks and eyes have been added yet: 37. Front skirt length: 42. Back skirt length: 42. The fabric isn’t a tropical wool-it’s a tad heavier. But it is about as thin as a tropical wool. It feels really nice.
