18th century Indienne print gown

I did the bulk of the sewing of this project in a weekend - Loren gave me this beautiful linen (or linen-look?) fabric that very much resembles 18th century Indienne cotton. I used the pattern I developed for myself when I made the purple gown last year. I know it fits me, so it works well!

I made the back in en fourreau pleats. Because I like them! I made the petticoat out of an embroidered cotton Target curtain! I made the hat too, to resemble one in The Duchess.

Here is the web page for my costume construction details and more photos:
