Kyoto Dress Fabric

I've decided to take up the challenge of trying to do the 1860s style evening dress seen in the Kyoto Costume Institute collection (pictured below). Instead of the pale pink fabric underneath, I've selected a darker, raspberry red silk fabric to go underneath and for bow trimmings. As for the overla...

Edwardian Shoes

Now that Truly Victorian has Edwardian things... If anyone is looking for historically accurate shoes, American Duchess is a wonderful place to find a pair. I recently purchased a pair of white Astorias and they not only fit great but are extremely comfortable as well! http://www.american-duchess.co...

Dress Form Cutaway

This post is long overdue, but I've gone through a lot in the last four months... Last spring, I was asked to do a cutaway dress form for the Kent Historical Society, where I was working at the time. I chose an 1880s style dress modeled after a plate found in Elegant French Fashions of the 19th Cent...

Re: cotton organza dress using Sheer Dress Bodice

Absolutely beautiful! Maybe I'll be motivated enough to start my own dress now :)

What's really amazing is this looks a lot like a dress that recently went on display at the museum where I interned at.

Corset for Display

The historical society where I work has asked my to do a cut away dress so that visitors can see what all the Victorian undergarments look like. The only thing that leaves me scratching my head is the corset. I will definitely put a busk in and grommet the back, since that is part of the overall con...

Re: WIP Floral Striped Polonaise

I love the trim and the matching hat. It really pulls the outfit together.

Re: 1865 Day Dress

I did. And they're hard to see, but there's velvet ribbon around the sleeve edges, neckline and front of the jacket too.

And the fabric is just regular cotton. Makes it great for cleaning :D

1865 Day Dress

No better time like the present to start sharing things. I've been working with TV patterns for about two years now and this is the first dress I've posted into the board. I finished the dress itself around October and I've still got a bit of work to do on the crinoline cage (you can't see them but ...

Dress Idea

I've actually been stalking the board for quite a while, but now I figured it's a good as time any to start posting. I recently got this idea in my head to try and create a late bustle princess line dress with a train based on actual piece I found at work (I was assisting in a class and had access t...
