Thank you so much - I really love it! You totally need one. They are really ridiculously easy, especially if you have a basic 18th century bodice that is already fitted. I didn't even bother with a toile, just cut straight from my Ice Cream Jacket pattern (since I knew it fit). I added a little to the center front so I could overlap it for a pinned closure, sewed it up, tried it on and cut off where I wanted the waist to be. The skirt is all gathered so that made it easy and fast as well!
That is my favorite pic too - it captured not only the moment and the day but also how much fun it is to be with my costuming buddies. You were , of course, very much missed! Stupid life getting in the way! *hugs*
