I was thinking about it and it’s true
I’ve never felt uncomfortably warmer in seasonally appropriate Victorian or Edwardian clothing than I would be in seasonally appropriate modern clothing
like I know Abby Cox did a video about this but it’s such a strange feeling to be intellectually aware that you’re wearing six layers and feel the same temperature as if you were wearing one
“I am wearing Many Clothes,” I think, at a summer event. “I should feel much hotter.” I am sweating no more than I would in jeans and a tank top

Bernadette Banner over on YouTube did a really good video Abt upsizing clothes with insertion lace. she also has great videos on hand sewing basics
Thank you for your excellent suggestion! I love Bernadette Banner's video's, but somehow I've missed her insertion lace video.
If anyone's interested in historical fashion, Bernadette Banner's YouTube account is well worth a view.
Her playlist on historical sewing techniques is a great resource on sewing by hand, as mentioned.

I made a skirt!
Tumblr media
Technically, I made two skirts. Technically, I made two petticoats, I planned on them both being under a darker brown piece I have. But the brown one got ripped again and I’m mad at it for being a thirty-five dollar skirt that has torn three times in nine months because it’s made of the cheapest garbage cotton I’ve ever seen. Fast fashion must die.
Screw that brown skirt, because this yellow thing that I made out of a bedsheet (Someone left a bedsheet in the apartment before we moved in and it doesn’t fit my mattress.) is super-comfy and coordinates with FOUR of my everyday tees and one of my dressier peasant tops. It’s warm as shit, too, and it was easy to make because it’s all rectangles with just a bit of gathering.

And I'm calling it a day!
The finishing touch will be either buttons or cufflinks but I can't make up my mind which, so I'm leaving that for tomorrow.
It's so comfortable! And extremely satisfying that this morning I had wrinkly fabric and now I have a dashing shirt!
Want to make one? These are the instructions I followed!

Back in early December, I went to Kurumed (a nutcracker themed café) for lunch with @sapphira-doll. Sapphira told me she would dress up Christmasy, so I did the same. She had to go home after lunch, so I decided to walk a while and visit the area. For pictures of the café and walk, see my Instagram post. Outfit rundown: Dress: old Mary Magdalene Jacket: vintage Collar: Axes Femme Hat: thrifted Axes Femme with added Mary Magdalene corsage Bag: thrifted Axes Femme Shoes: thrifted Yosuke Doll head brooch: Fuwari Candle holder earrings: Phantom Jewellery Crest brooch holding the jacket closed: vintage

Let the dirndlification begin 🎉
The dirndl top is finished and I hate buttonholes! It was still very fun to sew - I might add a panel of blackwork embroidery to strengthen the button plackets on each side, but that's for another day ☀️
Handmade dirndl vest with thrifted shirt, dress and belt.

I don’t know what new historical costumer or historybounder needs to hear this, but Sense and Sensibility Patterns is run by a woman- Jennie Chancey -who founded a blog called Ladies Against Feminism, wrote a bunch of books about Biblical submission to one’s husband, and is married to a conservative politician with whom she used to run a sketchy, exploitative business they claimed was helping women in Kenya
She’s gone remarkably quiet on her views since getting big with historical costumers (a largely progressive demographic). But she has yet to publicly address whether she still believes all that, so…better to just avoid giving her money for now

This God Damn Shirt is finally finished, after redoing the shoulder width, the back, and the collar— at least the cuffs turned out pretty nice
