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.
I made a Victorian side-button cycling skirt out of linen so that I can ride my bike in style. The skirt pattern is a free pattern by Bikes & Bloomers.
I made an Edwardian waistcoat to match my newest walking skirt. A quick little side project, you might think! No, a lot of tailoring was involved!
I made a walking skirt using a free 1902 pattern from Finnish Käsitöitä magazine. Ompelin pitkän hameen vuoden 1902 Käsitöitä-lehden kaavalla.
I made S another Ottobre design 4/2012 Black Denim dress as the old one is now too small. I rarely go back to sewing patterns but this one was too good!
Historical sewing and classic tailoring are close relatives. So, I decided to combine a block from 1912 with classic tailoring methods to make a waistcoat.
This is my B5813 hack with wide v-neckline, button-up closure and lace trim details. On my second use of this pattern I also made changes to the fit.
I practiced my trouser-fitting skills and made the Sara chinos by Mönsterfabriken using cotton chambray fabric. Who doesn't love trousers with big pockets!
I love Victorian fashion and this time I collaborated with Minerva Crafts and made this M2045 Victorian blouse with puffed sleeves and pintucks.
After I saw Emily Blunt wearing the beautiful dotty blouse in the film Mary Poppins returns I decided to make myself one with B6563 pattern by Gertie.
