Green Wool Skirt, 1850s/60s

Still working away at several large projects, but I did finally finish the sage green wool skirt.  It's intended for use with a contrasting basque bodice (for fashionable late 1850s wear) or a with a white waist and silk belt (for fashionable early 1860s wear).  The skirt is knife-pleated--box pleats at center front and back--and has black wool tape applied to the faced hem.
