Robe à la polonaise made of dark purple taffeta with white stomacher. I'm wearing an old petticoat because I didn't manage to sew a matching petticoat in time for the event to which I wanted to wear this dress. The picture is quite small and the quality isn't the best because it was taken in a place that was only candle-lit.
Mid 15th-century brown linen kirtle with waistseam. Based off of the various images compiled by Marie Chantal Cadieux, here:[link] Full circle skirt, lightly gathered into the bodice. Self-drafted pattern. All visible stitches are handsewn, interior seams are done by machine.
The sleeves are black cotton velveteen pin-on sleeves, lined in linen.
Basic London-style hood ([link] ... dhd1a.html) done in some fuzzy velvet brocade, lined in silk. Hand-cast buttons (not by me!). Again, visible stitches done by hand, everything else machined.
Issues: the bodice is a little long, which contributes to the wrinkles in the back. The skirt is obviously WAY too long, needs to be hemmed. Overall, though, it's a very comfortable, serviceable and versatile dress.
This is a Victorian dress consisting of a jacket and a skirt. There's supposed to also be an overskirt, but I have to change it. On top is a tricorne I created to go with the dress. Here's a close up of the tricorne and jacket: [link]
Sewing and photography done by me.
The dress is made of blue sation with a paisley pattern and black cotton. Theres also black elastic trim on the front and sleeves of the jacket. The buttons are metal coated with black cotton. Underneath is a crinoline made of cloth and cotton wool. Very comfortable to wear. The pattern is again from Burda.
The hat is made from the blue satin, trimmed with black satin ribbon and the black elastic trim from before. And I put a black ostrich feather on the side. Inside is a material similar to buckram and some wire.
