Another Historical Vintage

Hi

This is another of the historical costumes that I made in the Victorian era.

This one uses TV462 the tail bodice from 1883 and a simplicity costume skirt.  The bustle is made using a pillow.

I wasn’t as happy with this one as some of the others, not that it doesn’t look good – but I think I could have made it better.  Perhaps I was pressed for time or maybe I am just to scared of over doing it that I hold back to much.

What do you think I should have done to jazz this one up.

 

Thanks For reading and for more info please see my blog

Starting with costume making (which would still be my true though unindulged sewing passion) I have been behind the machine for about a decade. I am horrible at keeping my blog up to date (so is my blog buddy ange). I have been vintage sewing for about 15 years now and my favourite era varies so regularly that I couldn't say - though the other issue is that the 30's stuff I love was not designed on my more typically 50's hourglass.
