Uses for Surplus Surplices

A number of eBay sellers stock second hand surplices cheaply. All that gathered white cotton can very easily be upcycled into a nightdress (add broderie anglaise), tunic for re-enactment, dirndl blouse, or Victorian style pinafore. And they usually take dye well. Do any alterations first, using linen or 100% cotton thread, then you won't have to colour match thread to your newly dyed fabric.

I looked on eBay for these and only found sellers who were asking retail prices. I used terms like "used", "second hand", but couldn't find anything that was cheap. How did you find them?
