Ours was a multi-period picnic - no specific period was indicated, so we had costumes from 1890 through the 1950s. Debbie (Vintage Dancer) and I represented the '50s contingent, she in a lovely vintage find, complete with vintage petticoat (I'm jealous of that petticoat!), and I in a quick project with one of the vintage patterns I picked up a couple years back.

|Apparently this is called a "Florentine" collar.|
All in all, I'm chuffed with the pattern, with or without the big collar - it's a great basic sheath, simple to put together, with a great fit.
p.s. Please excuse my lack of photos - I still haven't found my camera charger. These photos were taken by Debbie's husband Oscar.
