HSM Challenge: Out of your comfort zone, or 1830s sleeve supports

So, I made it. Thanks to power outage that made most other amusements unavailable:-) Throughout yesterday, a windstorm has been raging all through the Czech Republic and it seems we've been lucky so far to have only the electricity hit...

The Challenge: Out of your comfort zone
... and well, it is. This is my first attempt at anything from 1830s - and it was fun!

Material: Cotton scraps from my grandma's destash, cotton batiste scraps, voile scraps for the stuffing

Pattern: drafted by my sister based on this tutorial: https://freshfrippery.com/2014/03/06/1830s-romantic-dress-part-2-sleeve-support-poufs/
Year: 1830s

How historically accurate is it? Not sure about the filling and perhaps I've stuffed the narrower part too much, but the cotton is accurate and it is all handsewn, so I'm hoping it's pretty good.

Hours to complete: Not sure, I didn't keep track... possibly about 2 hours?

First worn: Not yet
Total cost: About 50 cents for the strip of batiste:-)
