More old uni stuff I never got round to submitting!

This costume was designed and made by me in my third year. The design is based on upper middle class styles from the 1570s-80s and is supposed to be the 'best dress' of a country based noblewoman, as opposed to court gowns and more fashonable upper class fads, which took longer to reach rural areas (hence the fact that this gown takes the earler 'french gown' style as it's basis).

The gown is made up in red acetate taffeta wth faux fur cuffs and hand beaded trim. Under the gown is a boned kirtle in buff coloured linen with the neckline and forepart in gold acetate taffeta, worn over a high necked linen smock, which can be seen here.

Everything was made by me except the brooch on the front of the gown, which was added later for an exhibition and is made by Steve Millngham of Pewter Replicas [link]

The gown has a matching french hood [link]

EDIT: I've uplaoded new photos of this with some details and better quality pictures.

More old uni stuff I never got round to submitting - this time the french hood!

This was designed and made by me in my third year to go with this gown: [link]

The character was a country noblewoman in the early 1580s so I used the earlier french styles as my guide. The idea being that the hood was a bit old fashioned to reflect the fact that the lady wearing it lived in the country and fashions took longer to reach there.

The hood is made of a wired buckram base, covered in domette and then covered in acetate taffeta to match the gown. It has a black silk satin veil and is lined with black linen. I also beaded the edge to compliment the decoration on the front of the bodice.

I realised I had never uploaded this, even though I finished it ages ago. This was made as part of my uni course along with a 1940s hat [link]

This is hand made made using historically accurate construction methods and materials including a wired buckram base, domette interlining, silk taffeta outer covering and corded cotton (my favourite part!!) for the lining. The decoration is made of pinked, gathered strips of self fabric and fabric roses. The roses were bought but everything else is made by me. :D

The style is my own design, but is based on contemporary fashion plates and descriptions of middle class formal and day wear bonnets.

ETA: It would be worn with this kind of dress: [link]

ETA2: New image! So it fits in with my other two 'bonnet montages'!

Also, this bonnet is now for sale on Etsy, so go here to take a look: [link]

This gown is based on a picture and a pattern draft in Norris - Medieval costume and fashion. I'd say it's rather not period but I had to give this a try. I quite love the finished gown, though it's rather heavy. But I managed to get the back neckline properly while still having enough support in the front for a rather large bust without resorting to any supporting undergarment.

The fabric is silver silk with hand embroidery and a lila tussah silk (it's raw silk that's woven similar to wool).

A victorian corset, made from white silk and three layers of white cotton. I tried some cording at the bust and I actually love the look and support of it.

The corset is based on butterick 4254 but heavily altered.

EDIT 4/26/09: This outfit has been retired (AKA I tore it to bits :))

--------------------------------------------------

This was originally part one of my Grad Project for school; A study of Elizabethan women's clothing, different countries and classes (working title obviously). Eventually, my supervisor convinced me that I was being a little over the top with my project, and I changed it (and after a while I really appreciated changing it).

The outfit is roughly based on a batch of paintings of French servants and peasants. It's made up of:

-Ankle length stripe white linen square neck chemise. The cuffs close with hand plaited wool ties. I chose this fabric because of the unique look. It helped set off the drab of the mass amount of green I used. However, seeing as its not all that accurate (and it shrank a bit too), I made a new fitted smock to wear with this outfit and my Flemish gown.

-Red poly blend petticoat; 5 yards, knife pleated and back lacing (12 hand sewn eyelets and hand plaited wool lace).

-Green brushed cotton overskirt; 5 yards knife pleated and back lacing (12 hand sewn eyelets and hand plaited wool lace).

-Green brushed cotton bodice ; front lacing with detachable sleeves (2 hand sewn eyelets on each sleeve, 22 on the bodice, no boning, hand plaited wool lace).

-Red poly blend partlet; hand plaited wool underarm ties and hook and eye front closure.

-Mustard cotton bonnet ; too small, so excluded from final project

-Heavy unbleached cotton duck apron; excluded from project do to shrinking in the wash. replaced with a table runner found at a garage sale.

-Heavy unbleached cotton duck biggins; originally a bit small, but fits wonderfully with my hair up. Unfortunately, this biggins was lost to the great wide world of Yogi Bear campgrounds after a late night laundry session, one very muddy weekend at MiRF. I'll be making another one in the same fabric quite soon.

-Optional 2nd overskirt in Tartan and matching shawl; for those wonderful Celtic weekends.

-Maroon cotton weave jacket; for cold days. Originally a blanket from India; bought cheap to use as the magic carpet when my school did Aladdin. They threw it out the day after the show ended. Idiots.

-Straw hat; purchased $14. Tie made of a scrap bit of stripe linen.

-Leather belt, gifted by my friend Gary Trammel of Goldfrost Photography

-The ring, which is hard to see in the photo, but has been inquired after by various people, was made by my mother’s father who I never had the chance to meet. It was created of melted nickels and has a large M on it for Marvin. It weighs a ton.

I finally managed to finish this outfit in time for the third weekend of SLRF. It was amazing cool in the hot weather. Not surprising though, not too many people, my friends included, recognized me. All patterns are drafted by me, most are designed by me, and there are over 20 yards of fabric on my body. It was my first attempt at historical costuming, much less sewing something so complicated (I know it’s not all that complicated, but to me it seemed it was). My estimate on total time it took is about 2 weeks.

A standing view with a slight show of the petticoat can be found here and a view with the fitted sleeves can be found here Unfortunately, in a hurry to help set up my friend's booth, I managed to lace my bodice wrong that day. Oops. Also, in my infinite wisdom, forgot to take off my pirate medallion on.

This was photo was a birthday gift from photographer Mark Moore ([link]). I've got a big print sitting in my room waiting to be matted and framed. It's so pretty.

This is my merchant class gown, circa 1540(ish). Obviously, I'm not an extremely wealthy merchant as my fabrics are still very plain. However the cut and the fit of the gown, as well as the black fabric used for the headpiece show that I can afford some luxury.

The gown is made of a medium weight coarse tan wool and trimmed in a similar blue wool. The skirt is very narrow (only about 2.5 yards), but is filled out a bit with a fabric stuffed bumroll and a 5 yard petticoat. The gown is also lined, adding weight to the skirt and bulking out the pleats. It laces on the side back, blue wool cords through lots of hand-stitched eyelets. It does not have sleeve attachment points, as I plan to finish a tailored jacket instead. It's boned with 1/2 zip ties (yay).

The headpiece is a bongrace. It has a stiffened and wired brim, is covered in black linen, and lined in white linen. My hair is pulled back into the bag, which I can either leave hanging down like similar hoods or as seen here, I can pin the bag up on top of my head; perfect for hot days.

The linen shirt is unbleached and finished without ruffs (as it's from my sailor outfit). The collar is split far enough down that I can either leave it closed or open it to show off a little skin.

EDIT 4/6/08: Version 2 is currently planned out and the patterns are being re-assessed.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

This is my 16th century Flemish gown, recently finished. Due to lack of a sewing machine and time at school, this gown took a while to finish. I started late February and finished not quite the end of June. The delay in creation was mainly based on the fact that I got bored with the project. As I studied the paintings more, the more unhappy I became with my gown. Since I based it mostly on what other people had been doing, I failed to stick to the paintings as guidance. I will admit though, that I’m glad I used this as a trial gown. I’d be quite happy to make a new version for next season.

Now for the details: This gown is roughly based on various dress diaries throughout the tinternet, and the following paintings –

Joachim Beuckelaer – Interior of a Kitchen (1566)
[link]

Joachim Beuckelaer – The Four Elements: Fire (1570)
[link]

Pieter Aertsen – Christ and the Adultress (1559)
[link]

Pieter Aertsen – Market Woman with Vegetable Stall (1567)
[link]

Pieter Aertsen – Cook in Front of the Stove (1559)
[link]

The full outfit includes the over-gown, fitted kirtle (under-gown), shift, caul, partlet, hat, leather shoes (not pictured), hose (not pictured), and detachable sleeves.

It is fully reversible; the over-gown is brown and pumpkin, the under-gown is cranberry and blue, and the sleeves are lavender and sea-foam green. Yay, lots of options! The outfit is made up of five bed sheets (2 for over-gown, 2 for under-gown, 1 for shift), and 4 pillow cases (2 for sleeves, 2 for caul and partlet); sale special (extremely cheap), and 70% cotton. This outfit is really light and comfortable, which is nice since it was made to be a hot weather gown.

This is entirely hand-sewn. There is no boning throughout. There are ten brass rings stitched into the over-gown bodice. The under-gown laces on both sides with 36 total reinforced eyelets. The cording is plaited yarn.

I drafted the patterns myself (and I admittedly need more work with drafting and tailoring). There’s some problems with the whole get-up, but that’s why it’s VERSION 1! The hat I picked up at a Good Will and reshaped. The over-gown skirt should be pinned up in the back, but it fell apart on the way into Glasgow City Centre.

It's only a teaser, because I first want to finish his boots before I do a real photoshoot, but I really had to spam this because I've been working on it for a real long time xD The body of the jacket(in this picture that's the back)I handmade with needlelace. The rest is vintage lace, and it was all sewn together by hand. Putting the jacket together only took two LOTR extended edition movies XDD making the lace..took a bit more than a year, but I didn't work on it all the time.

Dilly(my Zaoll Muse)recently got his nails made longer, his ears removed(which makes the mask super streamlined)and corset piercings added along the sides of both of his legs <3 with this dress/jacket and his pointe feet(which will hopefully soon have ballet boots)he's exactly the kind of lacy fetishy creature I imagined <3

Was taking pictures of this steampunk Minifee corset I made as a commission and I really liked how this one came out, especially Kahlen's subtle little smile-sometimes she looks kind of evil XD Of course I like how the corset came out too, despite not being into steampunk ^_^

Kahlen is a 43cm Narae, corset is by me
