Eliza Doolittle Day 2018 is on Sunday, May 20, 2018: How should I make Eliza Doolittle's costume?

Sunday, May 20, 2018 is Eliza Doolittle Day 2018. Author unveils the story of real Prof Higgins and Eliza Doolittle ... Eliza Doolittle, the flower

How should I make Eliza Doolittle’s costume?

I haven't seen the movie in a while, these are the best pics I can find:

(best for the colours)

I'd say, go for a fairly full black skirt (you may need a full petticoat underneath it) with a patterned apron over the top, and a white blouse. A dark green medium-/longish-length fitted coat, and a maroon coloured scarf around your neck. Flat black shoes and a black wicker hat, with your hair in a messy bun underneath. Carry a basket of flowers, and pin a purple flower to your coat. You can probably find most/all of these in charity shops or on Ebay :) and don't forget to use coal or black eyeshadow to give your face a dirty look... Eliza was quite grubby before Mrs Pierce had her scrubbed clean.

Sorry I wasn't much help, it's late in England! Good luck finding everything

When Mr Higgins calls Eliza Doolittle a "squashed cabbage leaf" how does this explain Eliza?

I assume that is has something to do with the fact a squashed cabbage leaf is dirty and raggy - whicd describes Eliza's appearance.

Also cabbage in those days would have been seen as paupers food.
