Other time periods

1830’s is the new thing for me. I LOVE this fabric! The dress came out really well, but I don’t have a great pic of me wearing it yet.

 

My modern wardrobe has become increasingly hand done as well. It’s fun, I get the fit and style I want, and I know how it’s constructed!

printdress

This print dress is of cotton, and uses some mid-19th century dressmaking techniques including bust darts, hem facing, a flat-lined bodice, piping at the neckline, hooks and thread eyes, and a pleated, hand attached skirt. There’s also a pocket in the skirt.

raincoat

This raincoat is made of a waterproof cotton left over from a raincoat manufacturer. It uses princess seams for a good fit. It has MOP buttons.
