My Absinthe Robe

March 29, 2012 - comments
Because one costume is never enough! There will be an Absinthe Afterparty following the Titanic dinner I'm attending in a little over a week, and of course, that means I need a second change of clothes.

I make no assertions that my construction methods are entirely period correct, but I did use the diagrams and drawings in Patterns of Fashion and Costume In Detail as a guide.
