Chapter 438: Dressing Up
Author's Notes: Written for Challenge 389: Period at dw100.

Spoilers: The Unquiet Dead.

Summary: Rose is trying to get suitably dressed for 1860.

Rose hasn’t played dress-up since she was a kid. She used to love putting on her mum’s clothes, or fancy dress outfits, and pretending to be someone or something else, but this is different, maybe because everything is so authentic. It’s more like getting into costume, like she’s an actress getting ready to go on stage, or film one of those costume dramas she and her mum watch.

Period costume looks amazing, and she’s sure she’ll fit right in when she’s properly attired. It’s just getting into all the different layers that’s causing problems. She could use a ladies’ maid.
