I bought an Edwardian bodice and replicated it for my daughter. With a simple skirt and some accessories she now has a full outfit.
I made a late-Victorian/Edwardian man’s trousers and a waistcoat.
I tried to make a hat in the ridiculous 1890s style. I made a simple sailor hat that I then covered with silk, bows, flowers and a feather.
I made an Edwardian corset cover out of leftover curtain silk after finishing my Victorian silk petticoat. So much ruffle!
I turned a pair of thrifted silk curtains into a Victorian silk petticoat. I also dyed my cotton lace to match using common food items.
I made a shirtwaist by using the 1890s bodice pattern by Laughing Moon Mercantile. I also created a matching belt and a jabot.
I made a Victorian-inspired wool tweed jacket based on Marfy #1989 pattern and using real tailoring methods.
As I had to replace the worn-out shirt of my national costume from Kokkola, I decided to make it more historically accurate.
I refashioned a thrift store cotton and silk blouse to an Edwardian blouse by adding some vintage lace details and a cotton tulle guimpe.
I made a chemise using a free pattern from the Winter 1897 Voice of Fashion magazine. Interpreting an old pattern had its challenges!
