New Victorian Overskirt Pattern

I finally managed to take picures of my new overskirt (we are replastering the inside of my house, but that is another story).

This skirt is named after my mom, Dona. In Spanish, Doña means lady or noblewoman, and Madre means mother, so I thought it was very appropriate.

1870 – 1890
Doña Madre

Ideal as a dressy overskirt for
any occasion.
Based on patterns from period sources.

Variations and decoration ideas are included.
Foundation skirt is not included.
