I’ve been in love with second-half-of-the-14th century fashion ever since 2015, when I made my first 1360s gown. Here’s a look at how I made my second one, with lots of photographs.
What I like most, looking back at my Historical Sew Monthly 2021 makes, is that while I was prolific, I was also frugal and environmentally friendly. Quite a few of these items were made from re-fashioned items. The vast majority of the remainder were made from stash fabric (often originally thrifted) rather than new. And all of them were carefully and thoughtfully made, and will get lots of use. It’s a very good feeling.
I couldn’t justify making a whole new outfit for our Edwardian fossil hunting day because I’ve made so many 1910s thing this year. But I decided I could spruce up some of the things I already have, and give them a new life.
