A Few Pioneer Pieces

After much research into pioneer-esque outfits that can be made easily and quickly, I have come up with a few more pieces for my booth in August at the Threshers Bee in Hamilton, IL.
What we have here:
A peasant-style top and petticoat.
This petticoat was practice. The bottom tier will be much fuller.

A skirt. This is how the skirts will be; lots of fabric, drawstring waist (in order to be one size fits all), very full.
A simple apron. These will go better with the dresses that I plan to make. A simple, peasant-style dress without much form, that you wear an apron over at the waist to give it shape.

More pieces to come! The good thing about these costumes is that they come together VERY quickly. The bad news is that, no matter what I'm making, they all require LOTS of fabric.
