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.)
Ahh these are wonderful! Thanks for sharing :)ReplyDelete
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.ReplyDelete
