Linen samples for a 1760s robe a la anglaise. I really mulled over to the point of utter despair, what to do my first historically accurate handsewn 18th century gown in...I really wanted a reproduction print but they are so expensive to 'practice' on so to speak, since I don't really know what styles will work for me. So, I think I'll just go with solid linen and a striped petticoat (print weren't done for pettis with solid gowns...right?). What do y'all think?

It’s Spread The Love Time! I wouldn’t be nearly so fabulous without an army of extremely talented people behind me. I have to take a second to thank @dames_a_la_mode for the gorgeous custom jewelry. The moment I knew I was going to Versailles I got in touch with Taylor to discuss sparkle options because I knew she was the only one who could make jewelry befitting the grand setting. And did she ever! My jewelry was the perfect finishing touch for my ensemble and made me feel like a Queen! I want to wear it every day always. I would also like to give a shoutout to @thejennylafleur who provided my excellent hair buckles (y’all her hair pieces are THE BEST), and @americanduchess who make wonderful shoes, perfect for dancing all night in palaces. I would also like to thank the Academy and all the little people that made this possible... 😋😋 No but seriously, I just wanted to give some love and support to the amazing small businesses that help me play dress up like a champ.

Lady Joanne am Rein (@hanna.kivela) made me a new Renaissance chemise (probably because she's the one to suffer the smell if I don't have enough clean chemises in Cudgel War) and I love it! The chemise has already made me sleepwalk: one night I woke up wearing it even though I had gone to bed in my pyjamas. The red linen is going to be my "let's avoid a heatstroke" kirtle.

It's finished! Well, 1/3 of the final gamurra at least, but the bodice certainly has the most detail work and specialty fitting over the skirt and the sleeves. This bodice includes a hand pad stitched support layer of cotton flannel and linen canvas, a hand-inserted lining of handkerchief weight linen, a entirely hand sewn outer layer made of cotton crewel, and 22 hand bound eyelets. Phew, that was a lot of work! I have started to cut the fabrics for the skirt next, and have scarcely thought about the sleeves 🙃. Meanwhile I continue sewing sequins to the giornea. Lots of work left to go, but it feels very good to have this small part complete!

Gloria here. The next event from which I have photos to share is the 18th century picnic that @lovelyrita_mm and I hosted earlier this month. Because it rained, we had to move it indoors to @janinekspendlove’s apartment building, but that worked out nicely. We had a great turnout! #18thcentury #18thcenturycostume #18thcenturyfashion #historicalcostume #historicalcostuming #18thcenturypicnic #18thcenturypicnic2018

I've been working on some 18th century stock dresses today, so here is a throw back to a zone front robe anglaise I made back in 2014.

Dear Duchesse de Werlin👑, A great moment in history of our hotel is your mysterious apparition back in time (we were suddenly in 1778 you said?). After a stay at Versailles and a party at Chateau de Vaux le Vicomte?
As amazing as unbelievable without photos.
Thanks again 👏🙏

A game of cards, Madame?

These photos were taken in the lobby of our Parisian hotel, @hotelcarondebeaumarchais. I cannot say enough good things about this beautiful hotel!! Made to look like an 18th-century salon, this was our home away from home for seven days and I adored it. The lobby and our room were fully decked out 18th-century style, the location was convenient, the staff were lovely, and the pillows were sooooo soft and fluffy. I didn’t want to leave. Highly recommended!!

Progress on the #VanessaIves cosplay! I'm more than half way done with the bodice and it fits so I'm thrilled. The darts at the front were a pain and are ultimately not even, but I think it's one of those things where I'm the only one who will see it so it doesn't really matter. 🤷 I'm using zip ties to bone the bodice because after making a corset I'm done with spiral steel. .

Since armscye seams take a lot of strain, the delicate fabric here is getting extra reinforcement in the form of 3/4” cotton tape sewn into the seam on the body side, where it can take the brunt of sweat and strain. #sewing #handmade #handsewn #regency #regencydress #historical #historicalcostume #historicalsewing #historicalcostuming

Excuse my deeply not HA shift!
Finished my 3rd pair of stays! The pattern I used was the American Duchess 1760’s strapless back lacing stays. I cut 2 sizes smaller than my listed size on the packet - I did this because I have a lot of squish and can cinch down very easily - I have a 5 inch reduction in these stays, which is rather amazing, and I am completely comfortable, and have a proper 3 inch gap at the back. Also, when in my previous stays, they were not small enough to get anywhere near a 3 inch gap - I always cut to my size, and they always came out too large in the waist for me. So, given my weird cutting choice, of course there were sizing issues. I made so many adjustments! Firstly, I made them back lacing and front lacing, because I hate getting on back lacing stays - I can’t do it by myself (yet) and so I much prefer the easy wearing of front lacing stays. I also changed the boning layout to half-boned stays, since I didn’t have enough zip ties to make a fully boned pair. I added more fabric to the bust area, as I have a 32I cup bust and need extra room and support - otherwise these stays would have been an underbust. I also added straps to help with bust support.
Note: this pattern is more short waisted than I would like, and really gives a 1870’s/1880’s full tummy to the silhouette. I plan to remake these again, and lengthen the front.

Last year I made this early 15th century male outfit for @emanuele_lgr with matching chaperon, both based on "The medieval tailor assistant" book.
Could you say he lost more than 30kg now?? If you want, you can!! Visit his page for more pics and some gym tips ;) The dress will be probably on sale soon, It's definitely too large now. PS: he also did photograph and post production (@leledigitalartist), isn't he talented?!

Made a lobster tail bustle today, since I decided last week that my Mina Murray costume (see my other posts for work in progress) needed more structuring. It's a little rough around the edges because I did not have time to order a pattern and this is the first bustle structure I have made so there was a bit of guesswork involved. Namely, the side pieces don't really fit flat around the hips and the back panel ended up a little too narrow. But for a first attempt it's at least wearable. I'd like to make another one soon, as it would be nice to correct some of the issues I had this time around.
And FYI I am well aware that Dracula takes place in 1897 and that bustles like this are not historically correct for the time period, but I'm more concerned about film accuracy than historical accuracy.

My 1890s corset is officially done! I'm really proud of the fit and construction. It feels like the first corset I've made that I don't immediately want to throw away and remake.
.
I drafted the pattern myself and dyed the coutil (corset) and the canvas (boning channels). It has hand-sewn eyelets in the back and is boned with German plastic whalebone. It's one layer of coutil with external boning channels (definitely my new favorite method of sewing a corset!). .
The rest of my 1890s undergarments are mostly done, and I'm hopefully going to finish the skirt for my 1890s gown today! I'll try to post regularly again now that I'm back home from college and sewing actively 💚

Far from the maddening crowd... What I love about the angle of this shot is you can see all the people in the background and it looks like I’m slipping away from a massive party to go to a secret liaison. 😉😉

Last friday I got my Colette boots from @americanduchess and @larosecoutureshari and they are so pretty! I have to move some buttons but that will have some minimal effect.

Роль венгерской националистки Илоны Кеглевич (она же Баттьяни в девичестве) была сурова и мрачна. Нужно было всех про австрийски настроенных крайне не любить , презирать и уничтожать, поэтому свое веселье и жизнерадостность приходилось выплескивать за стенами дворца и его интриг.

Close to finishing the chemise. All I have left is to hem, attach some bands and sew on the trim. This trim I found from #moodfabrics is everything. Almost ready to start the daunting headache of the crinoline! #historicalcostuming

After the train left we strolled to the beautiful gothic church down the road in some refreshing light rain to take a few more photos since I was fitting enough dressed all in black. I had thought of that so I brought with me my antique psalmbook and a white fakerose I will later use as decoration on a hat. Came in handy and made a nice touch to the feeling! 😜

I had made this some time back, but since it's part of my civil war era gown I thought I'd share it again. Since the civil war was during the Victorian era, there were many similarities in the fashion with some exceptions. They were often made with silk or satin and plain colors. Whale bone would also be used for the boning. This here is made of metal boning and a polyester brocade. At the time I couldn't afford real silk for her. I'm pretty pleased with this corset! #historicalcostuming

I wasn't a super big fan of the Jazz Age Lawn Party a few years ago, but you know, a wonderful group of friends makes all the difference. I look forward to being back in august 🖤

Many of you may recognize this dress. It is an authentic 1920s dress with its original neck scarf and under dress. My hat is newer but is a style that I have documented being worn in the 1920s. I tilted up the brim to get the sun on my face.

Look at my stories in a few minutes for the lovely that unexpectedly came home with me 🖤

Had a true Karenina moment today(well, I didn't throw myself to my death under the train, but yeah... 🤔😂)!
We have a museum-railroad going between a few small communities not too far from where we live, and we knew it would be running today with the original train, so of course we went. Didn't ride it this time since we had the car, but sometime we will have to ride it as well to be sure! I've gone with it once, with my school when I was like 10. Too long ago now...
And for what I am doing standing on something in the waiting hall looking all terrified, it is an old scale which says "scale for weight tickets", so you basically paid by your weight in the old days riding the train. 🙄😅😏

Cutting the strips for ruched trim! Next will be hand tacking the chenille trim along the edges. I’m so happy this poly satin doesn’t fray much when simply pinked in the edges. Saves me a LOT of time not having to hem.

I had a great day today at the Belle Époque picnic in the Rosegardens off Mechelen Belgium. I was allowed to borrow the bike that is an original from 1935. Perhaps not the right date, but it was fun to bicycling in this skirt an sang very loud and out off tune Queen Bicycle. I haven’t finished the vest, but the weather was also what colder so no regrets about that. #1890s #bicycleskirt #historicalcostume #historicalsewing #historicalcostuming #bicycle #victorian #victoriangown #victorianfashion #1890sfashion #1890sbicyclecostume #1896daydress #sewing #selfmade

Mood: 17th century. In fact, I picked a photo from an old photoshoot to test Instagram filter codes out. I wish I returned to 17th century reenacting, but I must make a proper wig first (I'm meaning to reenact the 1690s). No exact dates, just plans.
