A difficult garment nicely done. Historic clothing is always challenging! Beautiful execution.
I have made period clothing, and it's not easy!
In my experience, this is where otherwise good costume can go wrong, with incorrect color choices, and sometimes pattern choices as well. Especially pleased with the patterned piece, and the colors look very accurate as well. Well Done.
Harmonious, well chosen colors that are appropriate to the dyes available in the period. Looks like clothing rather that a costume, as it should. Kudos for your hard work and attention to detail. Your efforts have paid off handsomely.
