Re: Where is a good place to buy Victorian shoes?

Quite some time ago, Lady Fleur showed me Victorian Boots on Ebay here: http://shop.ebay.com/oldmillmercant/m.html

They are now showing both low heeled and midheels

Re: 1881 Evening Dress

I love that fashion plate and have thought about making it! I'm so glad you asked the question, but apparently know one knows the answer -I sure don't. It looks like even sitting on the edge of a chair would be hard to do!

Great question Ginny and Super Great Answer Heather! I'm thinking about making another tea gown and this is excellent info. (just to keep the record straight, my adjustment was on the front not the back)

Tiffers! You look wonderful! Beautiful outfit and your hat and beaded bag are so perfect! Not to worry about "fluffy" hair! Your husband is quite attractive in his outfit, too! Of course I like anything to do with horses, so your friend's riding habit is right up my alley! Her hat is great...

Hi Heather -

I'm trying my first bodice and having difficulty deciding which adjusted fit to choose. The problem is my back width measures 13 1/2, length is 15 1/2 and bust 36 1/4. Which size should I use?
