Fall Fashion (1905)

Hello everyone. I've been so swamped with work that I completely forgot to post anything last week. Actually I'm still drowning in school work so if I go MIA again that is why. I'm running on about 4 hours sleep so sorry if this is a bit incoherent. You have no idea how much I miss sleep.... Anyways...

As Autumn truly seems to be here, I thought I would post some fall fashion. These images are from 1905. I love taking detail from Victorian clothing and using it with slightly more modern clothing (for example adding a Victorian inspired collar on a blouse). Although, I would totally wear full Victorian outfits on a daily basis if I could. It has always been one of my favourite styles.

(As soon as I have access to my sewing machine I am starting on a Victorian style dress! I have a book of Victorian dress patterns that I am dying to test out. I figure I can wear it for Halloween next year if nothing else.)

  2. Such splendidly pretty early Edwardian looks. I've always been drawn to Victorian and Edwardian fashions, too. The elegance and femininity that they exuded and personified appeals to every fiber of my fashion loving soul.


    Sending lots of uplifting energy and hugs your way, dear gal,
