Sorry MCBurbage - I don't have the exact measurements any more - I will try to work them out for you and post it here (it just won't be too soon, sorry)

How much material did this require? I know the book doesn't say how much material went into any of these dresses.

It's lovely. I haven't quite had the nerve to try making anything from a vintage pattern yet. The idea of having to draft it from the pattern piece drawings! You, however, have done beautifully with this and all the 1910's reviews you've written.

This must have been very time-intensive. End product is very professional looking. I'll have to look up that book. I have made period costumes, but nothing authentic, like yours. Great job!

Thank you for your encouraging comments! For unfinishedprojects - I have edited it to show the inside/outside pleat detail (or how I got it to go together)

Beautiful! Congrats to you for attempting anything from PoF. Would also love to see pic of the skirt hem detail.
