I made a practical 1915 skirt out of black wool. The pattern was an authentic historical pattern from the book "Kukin oma ompelijansa".
I made the Victoria blouse by Fibre Mood for myself for the winter. Here is my review of the pattern. Spoilers: I like it!
I made a Victorian corset using a pattern from the Symington collection. This is one of my most complicated makes but a successfull one! We also visited Turku castle and got to see some extant garments from the 19th century and earlier.
I took an old umbrella and turned it into an Edwardian style silk parasol. I also transformed a modern paper straw hat into an Edwardian style hat.
I made turn of the 20th century drawers using a Finnish pattern from 1892. For sewing, I used my hand-crank Singer 12 from the year 1877.
I tested the 1900-1910s blouse and guimpe pattern by Wearing History. I must say that of all the similar patterns I have tried out, this one is the best.
History bounding means wearing history-inspired garments as part of your everyday outfits. Thrift store treasures can be easily combined with garments you have sewn yourself.
