Heres where we left off:
Next I made a yoke pattern straight from the dressmaker.

 Here it is after cutting and sewing together two layers. The top curve needed to be notched.

After flipping right side out, ironing flat and pinning to the dressmaker.

Lots of fiddling later, the yoke was sufficiently pinned to the skirt and sewn together.

Here I’ve added two ribbons to tie the skirt closed. I may add more ribbons later to close the slight ‘gape’. Next up will be hoops and netting!
