A Woman's work is never done by silverstah A Woman's work is never done by silverstah
Yet one more Italian working-class dress, since I really love them so! This one is a salmon-pink lightweight, very smooth linen I picked up in the Los Angeles garment district a few years ago. The guarding is army green linen, and there are herringbone green linen sleeves that tie on - but it was too hot that day!

Self-supportive bodice, with just a wee bit of reed boning at the lacing edges to keep things stable. Hand bound eyelets at the front, matching pink lucet cord.

Skirt is cartridge pleated on. Knife or box pleats seem to be more common in the Campi paintings, but I'm a sucker for cartridge pleats. They're just so bouncy!
