Alcega

Wilhelmina has now a spiffy farthingale.

Making small farthingales is a pain in the butt, but it was very educational where cut and construction is concerned.

And speaking of farthingale cut and construction, Juan de Alcega was a genius.

I must try some of his other patterns some time soon.
