Mid 19th century homespun dress

Oh fabric. How I love you! Let me count the ways!

This is the second dress made from this fabric and I just cannot get enough of it! I love it more and more! Alas, when I purchased it, I only bought one bolt and now all but a few scraps have been stitched up.

This beauty is based upon our American South dress and is headed down to the National Civil War Naval Museum in Columbus, Georgia!  I think the dress turned out just gorgeous! I hope they think so too!
