Challenge Complete

I love 18th c petticoats. They're so quick and easy!

And a close-up so you can see the weave of the stripes. The fabric is either a poly or poly-blend, probably intended for window sheers. I found it in the back corner of Home Fabrics in the LA fabric district at CosCol this year. It's 120" wide, and between  llyrafantasyfae and I, we split the entire bolt.

And now it's decision time - to do a ruffle, or not to do a ruffle? And do I want to make the under bodice parts (the long sleeves and the stomach area of the zone front) out of this fabric, or just a plain white? The rest of the robe will be a "silk-blend" blueish-periwinkle-ish taffeta. Any opinions?
