Voile Undersleeves

I had a slow day at the Fort yesterday (at least in the morning), so I decided to sew some undersleeves by hand.

White voile undersleeves for 1850s wear.

The voile is delightfully light, but starts looking wrinkled the second I take the iron off of it.  It didn't fray very much, and so far was more pleasant to work with than the batiste I used on my last set of undersleeves--it was also less droopy, so I am hopeful that it will wear a bit more nicely.  The ease with which it wrinkles is a bit disconcerting, however...
