I was given a beautiful nightgown last year with damage to the bodice, and I thought the skirt would make the perfect 18th century under-petticoat. Under-petticoats were shorter petticoats tied over the shift, and worn under the stays, pockets, and over-petticoats.
I’ve really gotten into historical hair-pad making recently: experimenting with different patterns for 18th century pads and Edwardian ‘rats’, and using different stuffings and outer fabrics.
I made a lot of things in 2020, from 1780s jackets to 13th century hats, and completed every Historical Sew Monthly 2020 challenge, some of them several times over. So, what did I make?
