1840-1910 projects: late historic

why that frock- beaded version

Went on a dress hunting spree last night. I want to find all he beaded gowns of the 1880s to see if I can shift my obsession. Didn’t find what I wanted. But I did find a few I do love, just not to the hard core grabbed my heart when I was a kid and it started the obsession with real historic costume.

So a few more “Why that frock” posts are going to get made 🙂

Today though I did also go through more paperwork- my art, writing, costume dissections and pattern theories as well as the last of my photocopies from when I was at Uni. Finally got them mostly sorted into easy to find files.

A reasonably big scan session soon for all of those 🙂
