I made her clothing from antique fabrics. Margaret is wearing a  two-piece gown. The bodice is beige polished cotton. The skirt is a 18th c. English Embroidered Silk fabric.

Her undergarments include: petticoat and chemise. All made 
from cotton fabrics and clothing from the Edwardian Era


 
 
Her skirt is a beautiful example of 18th century embroideries. It dates from around 1750-80.
The embroidery and colors are superb!
 
 

The red and golden yellow colors of her 18th c. cloth pocket make a wonderful contrast with her clothing. Rich embroidery with silk and metallic threads.

And last but not least, Margaret's shoes are quite lovely. They are entirely hand sewn. The outer of the shoes are made from a fragment of 18th c. Spitalfields silk brocade, England 1750-1780. They are linen in cotton, the sole is leather.
