Projects for 2014 – Victorian Day Gown

Oh, I hate Victorian with a passion. I find the overall silhouette from 1800 to 1899 pretty much not to my liking, but for a few years in the 1870s and a couple spots in the 1890s. But then again, I’m willing to set aside my dislike of the entire century for a chance to play dress-up with my friends at Kentwell. Yes, it appears as though I will be spending a weekend in the early 1870s at one of Kentwell’s Victorian reenactments! I’m hoping to be approved to portray a wealthy American heiress, a la The Bucaneers.

Anyway, here’s my pinterest board where I’m hoarding images of early 1870s frocks that I don’t hate. I’m not sure yet where I’m going with the dress, but who cares? EYECANDY.

    Can you see the high wattage Big Grin from over here in damp Old Blighty?

    So much fun! I love that you’ll get to be a “buccaneer!” I feel like the bustle era and the late 18th C has a lot in common with each other stylistically.
