I’ve always been wildly envious of costumers who post about historical retreat events that include opportunities to swan about in glamorous undress. Whether it’s 18th century banyans, Victorian tea gowns, or Edwardian wrappers, there’s something so delicious about swanning around in decadent deshabille.
Lots of you enjoyed my Selina Blouse with added jabot tie. It’s a fun variation to the basic pattern and really plays with the possibilities of the waistcoat-effect front of View A. Here’s a quick tutorial on how to add your own!
Reasons I love this pattern: First, ruffles! And insertion lace! So pretty and delicate and delicious! You can make it as a historical petticoat, or make it as a modern skirt, it’s fabulous as both.
