I attended an event this evening wearing a new 1880s ensemble.
Lizzy wanted some love.
The patterns are from Truly Victorian.
I hand embroidered the flowers on the front panel and side inserts.
Antique tatting frames the front panel.
Detail of side panel.
The tassels came from a thrift shop and are backed by a piece of vintage tatting.
Instead of adding a gathered ruffle to the underskirt I did a pleated ruffle to compliment the Asian pattern of the fabric.
The tasseled trim on the overskirt was a remnant from a friend:).
The sleeve is trimmed with antique lace and tatting.
Thanks for visiting!
