Victorian Travel Gown by fairyfrog Victorian Travel Gown by fairyfrog
Made in dark moss green silk, May 2009.

Got my ideas from 1875'ish magazines, stitched it in a weekend.

Hat is original turn of the century 18/1900.

Oh my. Ever do you make me fan myself, for fear of fainting from the marvellous beauty that is yours - and the ingenuity and skill in your making of things!

It's hard to get tired of such lovely gowns, yes?
I should borrow your pictures as reference for character design sometimes. :D

I wish I had more patience for sewing. I been a semstress for ten-fifteen years and now all I want to do is metal crafts. I blame novelty! =)

It's still impressive. :D I can't sew for shit, so I guess it's even easier for me to be amazed by these. XD Still, fine work here. :D

Even people who can sew has given me lovely comments on these... I wish I had more time and inspiration for textiles, Metal is all I have the patience for at the moment.

..Thank you!

I based the patterns on some fashion templates from 1874 and 1875. I drafted the patterns myself as well as constructing the underpinnings prior to the dressmaking.

I'm happy you like it, I want more dresses like this!

Aw, thank you!

I hope so too, there are a lot of projects I want to get done in the Victorian style. Just need to find the right time and space for it. Making these is a bit much for my tiny apartment. =)
