The kit contains the spencer in pink floral silk/ecru satin piping and the striped dress in ecru/fine blue stripes and aqua ribbon decoration! The bonnet is in smoky rose velvet to match the spencer!

 

The kit contains everything that is not marked in red with "not in kit".

Three wonderful dresses and an intricate spencer comprise part 4 of the Gildebrief Centruy Project, covering the period of about 1812 to 1820. A dreamy ball gown in gossamer silk and glossy satin from about 1814, a cotton day dress from about 1816-18, a cotton voile dress from about 1820 with heavy hem decoration, a silk spencer with tabs and tassels worn throughout the early 1800s, plus a huge-brimmed velvet hat make up this part of the continuing project!
