the adventures of the 1830 dress (in progress)

Postby steffielove » Tue Jun 25, 2013 6:57 am

I am working on several dress at this moment (a 1895 dress, and a robe a l'anglaise) but the focus is on my 1830 gown, with a corded petticoat and a bonnet.
I am using the truly victorian 455

I made my own corded petticoat! It is too ugly to see daylight, and should be covered with a petticoat really fast!

I am wearing it with my silverado corset, because i am too lazy to make a good 1830 stay. It will come one day, in the future.

Here is a picture of the fabric! I love pink, and this fabric makes me feel like a disney princess

I like your fabric, certainly looks feminine and pretty.
Nice job on the corded petticoat. Looks good to me. :)

I don't see anything ugly about your petti. Looks good to me. Did you use a pattern? And really good job on the bodice, must have been painful getting the stripes lined up so well.

I havent used a pattern the petticoat. I did some research and just started, to see where it ends.


I am so madly in love with this dress, i only need to hem it and put hooks and eyes on the sleeves
I am working on a bonnet to go with it.

Sorry for the bad mirror picture. When its done i will get better pictures

I loved the dress I made from this pattern so much, I've got two more cut out. I like my sleeves kind of collapsed down. I first wore my Regency stays with mine but decided the Victorian one will work too and I can get in and out of it myself.
I agree with the others, your corded petti looks fine. They all look a little wonky.
Your almost finished dress is gorgeous!

Nice job Steffie! The fabric itself is tooth aching sweet but the final result is just lovely. The sleeves are my favourite part of the dress :)
