Kay will prepare 4 projects for this workshop, please choose one (if you want topurchase a second project package, please contact her).

1) Cotton Fichu "Rubane", 1864.  This kind of fichu can be used to make a low corsage "high" for day wear.
2) Cotton Undersleeves "Rubane", 1864.  This type undersleeves is perfect for narrower open sleeves which have a slit in the back.
3) Silk Net Fichu, 1861.  This fichu can take the place of a berthe on a formal dress with low corsage.
4) Cotton Net Undersleeves for low corsage, 1860.  These undersleeves are short, to be worn with forlmal dresses.

If you have something specific in mind, that is not offered, please let Kay know, as it may be possible to find a pattern and materials.
