1830s Underpinnings

All new, at least relatively - everything except the shift has been finished no earlier than June, I think. (I'm wearing my late 18th/early 19thc shifts with 1830s - they tend to be my default because they work with most eras!) (Ugh, the photos are misbehaving - if they look wonky in the post they should still come up alright when you click on them! Grumble grumble.) Starting from the inside out - under my corset I'm wearing aforementioned 18thc shift, and my (extremely wrinkly) 1860s…

1840's Cap II

Almost four years ago I made an attempt to make an 1840’s cap. I was tolerably pleased with the result, but now I wanted to have another go at it. When I found some nice scraps (which from the burn test I think are cotton) amongst the fabrics I was given a while back, I knew at once that they would become different kinds of 19th century caps. Quickly and not very neatly trimmed with silk ribbons - it can be made much prettier. I have looked at many more pictures of 1840’s caps since 2010, so…

Cap Research

Yesterday afternoon I decided to do a quick post on the three basic accessories; caps, kerchiefs, and aprons. I took a few images of my caps, started to cut a new one out to show shapes, and then decided to find a few quick images for examples. That's when I realized that caps tend to be an object we always use secondary sources for. Most of my examples have been from commercial patterns, others examples, and "how-to" guides for patterning your own. So, I skipped the posting and spent some…
