Primitive Prairie Dress with Bonnet Costume

I found this handmade Primitive Prairie Dress with Bonnet. I was shocked when I tried it on and it fit me perfectly. Like it was made for me. Its purple but not dark and not too light. When taking this photo it was 90 degrees outside that day. I really have no idea how they would wear these back in the day. Well did they where them here in South Florida? The hat totally protects you for the sun but it makes seeing on either side of you a bit hard.
Its very long. I have to take a bunch of the skirt in my hand while walking.
I used to make these type of gowns and I know how much fabric is needed and the work that goes into them. I paid $7.00 for this handmade costume. You can not even make the hat for that.

I was working my twirl. How else was I gonna get cool?
