"Many historical garments, and the costumes of many people around the world, use basic geometric shapes as their basis. In this challenge make a garment made entirely of squares, rectangles and triangles (with one curve allowed), whether it is an 18th century kimono, a flounced 1850s skirt, or a medieval shift."
I made a rectangle apron and triangle fichu to be worn with any of my 18th Century ensembles.
Fabirc: a very fine cotton muslin
Pattern: Didn't really have one, with the exception of the fichu diagram found on the web.
Year: Generic 18th Century
Notions: floss for the embroidery and ribbon for the waist tie on the apron
How accurate: I'm giving this a 9 out of 10 becuase the material is correct, and both items were hand sewn.
First worn: not yet, but will be in just a few weeks.
Totaly Cost: Not too sure as all of it came from the stash, i do remeber paying about $4 per yard for the fabric, but this didnt even use up more than a yard or so.
