Civil War Ensemble Preview

Hello everyone! Today I would like to share a tiny preview of what my fall and winter Civil War ensemble looks like. It is far from perfect yet and I have a lot of re-sewing and modifying to do, but I just did a small photo shoot anyway.

I love this decorative trim along the skirt! It matches one of my hats perfectly and adds some color to the yards and yards of plain green fabric.

I didn’t spend a lot of time doing my hair, so it wasn’t historically correct. But with hair as long as mine, it takes a long time to make it stay up! Even with a head full of bobby-pins it’s still a challenge!

“Do you like historical or vintage clothing best?”

“I’d love to hear what you guys think about my fall/winter outfit in the comments!”
