Finally got my little sis's stuff done enough to post! I hope it's ok to bring this thread up again. Huh

Anyway, here goes:

^ chemise with Elizabeth's pattern


^ Elizabeth's tucked drawers pattern, with side plackets



^back of the corded stays (they still need straps)


^corded stays with petticoat buttoned on them


^tucked, starched petti


^the dress (ignore the little hoop under it, that was just for play!) I found the fabric at Goodwill and used the chemise pattern; it's a gorgeous little radish print cotton, somewhat similar to this dress: http://www.wisconsinhistory.org/museum/collections/online/image.cfm?ImageFile=/VoyagerImages/Z000/Z00023/Z0002377.jpg&TableKey=OBJECT:37294


^ striped pinafore (fabric was a cotton sheet from Goodwill)


^slatted sunbonnet

Thank you for letting me share!
