A dress for a friend

This weekend I made a dress for a friend of mine who is very involved in civil war reenactments. As usual she provided the material, trims and chose a style, I just did the making it into a dress part :) 

Based on the simplicity of the fabric, she went for a more simple style: 

The dress is all one piece with the bodice and skirt attached. The opening in the skirt also has a small pocket tucked into it  :)

The nice thing about this quick little project is that it put me in mind of sewing 1850 and 60s style for dickens, and I really need to get my but in gear for that!! :)
