I have to admit that I do not particularly care for this outfit and thus my Sam hardly wears it. The tights are awkward and I do not know if they are historically accurate or just a simplification...but the dress does not look so good with white socks or even knee-high stockings (non PC). The lacy whites fluff it out a little more, but they still fit underneath it. The front looks like it is missing something without the brooch from the accessories. The fabric is fine. The bloomers are awesome and you can adjust their length. Overall a B-.
