The blouse tends to pull uncomfortably around the armpits and the tops of the breasts, and the neckline binds a bit when the blouse rides up, but it looks surprisingly good when I have it on. I made the skirt years ago, based on the Huldremose skirt; it's 100% wool in a 2/2 twill weave (which is period) but my idea that the pattern of the plaid is period is based upon rank speculation. Still, the two garments look well together--and what's more, they look period, and that pleases me. (I'll make a better-fitting bog blouse again, sometime). All three photographs were taken by my loving husband. Please forgive the funny facial expressions--I can't always manage to smile on command.
