The 19th century and me

I never really got into making 19th century clothes. I think they're beautiful, but since I don't really have anywehere to wear them my only finished costume from that century is my empire dress.

I started on an 1850s dress too, and got as far as the underwear.

And a hat


That doesn't mean that I'm not interested in fashions from that period - in fact it's one of the most interesting periods in fashion history. Right now I'm preparing a lecture on fashion in the second half of the 19th century that I'm giving on Monday. If you're near Gothenburg, Sweden, here's a link to the info about it.

I also collect lots of images of 19th century fashion on Pinterest:
