I finally did it! I finally purchased my first antique gown! I've been
wanting to really dive into collecting extant gowns for a while, but the

1872 Green Embroidered Corset
Finally, a UFO that I can say I actually went back and finished! I actually started this new corset way back in December of 2016. I had found a beautiful blue embroidered corset online that I'd become mildly obsessed with, and I wanted something similar. I ...

A Turquoise and Silver Bustle Gown for Day and Night
Desperation sewing. I'm really trying not to do any this year, but somehow I always end up in a time crunch when there's an event on the horizon, no matter how much of a head start I get. When I began this dress, the Victorian Soiree just a month away and I...

Great Great Granny Panties: A Pair of 1874 Drawers
Drawers. Drawers are a thing. As a mainly 18th Century costumer, they are a thing that I almost totally forgot about! Thankfully, they are a fairly simple item to make, and didn't change significantly from the 1830s to the 1880s. There's even a surviving pa...

Warm in the Winter: A Look at Victorian Dolman Coats
I have to admit, I am lousy when it comes to making historical outerwear. It's not that I can't do it, it's just that I focus so much of my time and attention on the main ensemble that things like accessories, hairstyles, and outerwear just don't get made i...
