1912 Fancy Batiste & Lace Blouse


Gallery1.JPG

A pretty 'lingerie' blouse from 1912 that can be worn with practically anything. We created this replica from off-white cotton batiste, with vintage galloon lace for the insertion sections. The fabric is pre-tucked prior to the pattern pieces being cut (a common technique of the era). Our pattern #1912-A-003.

1912 "Tulip" Hem Hobble Skirt


Gallery1~0.JPG

An elegant 1912 tailored skirt with "tulip" shaped hemline. This skirt has a columnar front shape, but there is stride room at the lower back (see photos of skirt back). Still, compared to the long, trained skirts of earlier Edwardian years, this was far more restricting, hence the name "hobble skirt". Created from our Pattern #1912-A-010.
