A while back I posted some thoughts on a ‘maid’ costume.
In terms of a more conservative traditional design, this is what I had in mind :
This still isn’t based on a period design, but would be suitable for a generic ‘maid’ character of the mid 20th century.
Pattern request would be for the “Dress” , “Pinafore Apron” and “Cap” piece.
Design could be readily adapted for later eras, by varying the skirt/apron length.
