I found this free pattern for cycling bloomers by Bikes & Bloomers and decided to give it a try.
Chatelines were a huge fashion accessory during Victorian and Edwardian times. Often they included various sewing tools that were both pretty and practical.
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!
This time I made an Edwardian inspired lace blouse which gave me an opportunity to learn how to make invisible seams in lace.
I made Sewaholic Nicola dress out of pretty crepe fabric. I have had this pattern for ages but only now got this dress done.
Recently, I joined Minerva Crafts blogger network. For my first blogger network project I made this 1930s blouse out of yellow chiffon.
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.
I sewed an Empire or Regency style dress using a pattern by Sense & Sensibility. Now, after completing my whole outfit I took part in a historical picnic.
I made a pair of regency shoes out of a pair of modern pumps I found second hand. Just a little of taffeta fabric, glue, bow and nailpolish(!) was needed.
