Regency Maid's Costume

Is completed! This costume I made in imitation of those in P&P 1995 (go to Movies for a review of the movie.) There is a grey dress, fichu and cap all hand-sewn and the apron I didn't make. I didn't use patterns (they confuse me) so I can't tell you the instructions!!
 
 
I couldn't rotate that last one. Bother.
Peeling apples in our very un-Regency kitchen!
