Costume by me
PLEASE NOTE!!! This work is *NOT STOCK ART*. Please do not use without permission, which you can send me a note for. Thank you.
This is so beautiful. I am wondering what type of pleats you used on the back. The effect is so lovely. Thanks.
Also, I wouldn't worry about stitching the chemise in place - that's why there were maidservants to sew you into your gown every morning and then pin the living daylights out of it
Well, I don't have my own maidservants, so stitching it is! I wish I did, I can't get into half my costumes by myself!
Actually this wasn't stock art, but since you've used it tastefully you can use it
You made a very great work here : elegant and simple. I like it very much.
I think the ladies who could afford the pretty, trained gowns weren't walking in the filthy streets I did see on an Edwardian gown with a train, that it was lined with flannel on the bottom that presumably was to be removed and replaced when it got too beat up and dirty
You have a really nice gallery! Love your historical costumes.
Is it historically accurate for the back neckline to come so low? I can't remember from my fashion history classes.
May I ask what fabric it is made of ?
It really didn't take long at all, the sleeves were the hardest part probably. The bodice isn't really shaped and the skirt is pleated to fit, so it sews up pretty quick
