I've pretty much finished up the 1790s open robe. No final pictures yet, as I didn't have light for taking them. But here's a look at the back:

Pleating the skirt to the right width:

I marked how wide the pleats should be on my ironing board with a washable marker. Then I held the fabric up to that and pinned the pleats down:

After I attached the skirt with a backstitch, I felled the seam over itself with whip stitches:

Finally, the belt. It's a couple inches wide, backed with linen.
