“Spirite” (c.1885) by George Roux I’m not sure about the photograph in the second slide but I thought it was very fitting and shows Victorian special affects at their best!

“The Fitting”(c.1900) and “Preparing for the ball” by Viktor Schramm Duo-chrome and multi-chrome tones have always fascinated me. I think in a pigment, the particles must have a different color on each of it’s sides. And with a fabric, many small colors are incorporated into the thread. It must have taken so much time to make before modern machinery, and that’s something I really appreciate.
I made an interesting discovery the other day in the woods behind our house. We stay on a piece of land that was farmed at least a century ago - the house we live in was built in 1922. Along the border of our property runs a decrepit fence line that consists of many crude, hand split posts. Amazingly, at least half a dozen of these posts appear to bare turpentine scars! The naval stores industry played an enormous role in North Carolina's economy for nearly 200 years, until the supply of trees was exhausted. Sadly, there are no longleaf pines growing on our property today, but these fenceposts suggest what might have been growing here once upon a time. The second picture shows the faint scars on a living longleaf pine in Bladen County. The third photo shows a turpentine worker using a tool known as a puller. This tool was used to hack "V" shaped gashes that channeled flowing resin into a "box" that was cut into the base of the tree. (Photo belongs to NC Division of Archives and History)
DIY - Bonnet 1840s Já está no IGTV o meu vídeo customizando um chapéu comum e transformando em um bonnet. Tem a lista de materiais utilizados e algumas dicas de como fiz. Espero que gostem! O tecido é um veludo verde bem escuro, parece preto pela foto. Estou bem satisfeita com o resultado. Como eu disse no vídeo, a ideia anteriormente era fazer um mais simples, porém como estamos próximos do Natal, me inspirei no “A Christmas Carol” do Dickens, para esse bonnet mais elaborado e em verde, pela época natalina. Aliás quem nunca leu o livro ou assistiu o filme, é uma boa pedida pra essa época de final de ano! 🎄#bonnet #pokebonnet #1800s #1800sfashion #1840s #1830s #charlesdickens #achristmascarol #christmas #vintage #historical #antique #hat #vintagehat #vintagelifestyle
A brief intermission from 2018 in review! I’m reworking a good portion of my 1840’s dress, so all the little things come through the way I really want them to. It’s much easier to focus on the finer details now that I’m not on a hard deadline. Swipe for progress pics!! . . I’ve already trimmed the sleeves and redone the fastenings, so the bodice is very nearly complete. The lower sleeve needs finishing, so I can remove them as necessary and use the day dress as an evening gown. I also want to add a modesty panel (and possibly a stiffened facing) to the back opening, because the underlap doesn’t hold as steady as I’d like when the hooks and eyes pull. . . I’ve also done up the lining for the skirt and I’m currently whip stitching the fleece padding into the hem and back. The lining and skirt are sewn together and the waist is folded over, ironed, and basted together in preparation for the cartridge pleats. Then to pleat the skirt and attach the waistband, and it’ll be ready to attach to the bodice!! . . #charlesdickens #thegreatdickenschristmasfair #victorian #victorianchristmas #victorianera #19thcentury #1800s #dickensfair #dickens #costumer #costume #history #historical #historicalfashion #historicalcostume #1840s #1840 #historynerd #sew #sewing #sewingproject #wip #workinprogress #cosplay #cosplayer #seamstress #victorianfashion
At the Pontiac Women’s Club luncheon today we had a very special presentation by, Mr. Collins Miller! He spoke about the history of the Strevell House. The home has ties to Abraham Lincoln, Minnesota, Utah. Mr. Miller spoke about the people and families that are connected to the home...such interesting stories! The more I can learn about Pontiac people and history...the more I can share with guests staying at the Bed and Breakfast 🛏 🥞 #threerosesbnb #womensclub #luncheon #women #girls #powerfulwomen #strongwomen #americanhistory #illinois #illinoishistory #1800s #pioneer #ancestory
Kate Winslet & Saoirse Ronan to star in historical romance-drama ‘Ammonite’. Set in a UK coastal town in the 1820s, the drama will follow the unlikely romance between paleontologist Mary Anning and a London woman of means to whom she must unexpectedly play nursemaid.

Rehearsal 📷 I HAVE to share this final photo because it was the first time we had props and real food in front of us. The three sisters were impoverished and invited over for a meal so the direction was to stuff our faces. We were so eager to do the scene justice that we actually stuffed our faces and chocked and were unable to deliver our lines and cried from laughter 🤣🤦🏻‍♀️ amazing memories with @anasani14 @conniewang_ #actors #actresses #actor #actress #artist #artists #toronto #6ix #threesisters #direction #food #1800s #rehearsal #throwback #props #theatre #theatrememories

sometimes it's the tiny details of old, faded, workaday items that create the stylish gesture. a worn starter jacket under an ancient Levi's trucker is deeply Chicago, but also carries a reference to fashions of the mid-1600s and and early 1800s.

The Town-Shields House is a Queen Anne style house located at 33 East Main Street in Hudson, Ohio. It was originally built in 1824 for Dr. Israel Town in the Greek Revival style. In 1890 the house was acquired by the Sheilds family, who remodeled the home into a fashionable Queen Anne. I love the charming green color of this one.

I've started focusing more on historical costuming this year and moving a bit away from Cosplay. I especially love the late Victorian style so that's where I'm starting. So far I've finished my chemise and my drawers. First time doing pin tucks! Aren't they lovely. So satisfying to make 💕💕 Corset is next 😳 - - - - - - #wip #tuesdaymotivation #sewing #sew #historicalfashion #historicalcostume #costume #costuming #victorian #victorianstyle #victorianfashion #1800s #latevictorian #chemise #drawers #potd #historicalcostuming #historical

My first dress for an adult. I had to learn so many things to make this! I made a bodice for an adult, sewed darts, used boning, used hook and eye tape, made my own bias tape, and did cartridge pleats. I had never done ANY of those things. Luckily, I found these old ass curtains in the basement, so all the fabric was freeeee! I used a #simplicity pattern for the skirt. And #trulyvictorian for the bodice. The #Bertha was inspired by an assortment of other people's designs on the internet. #thankyouinternet I was aiming for mid #1800s

The Repository of Arts, Literature, Commerce, Manufactures, Fashions, and Politics, etc. (London: Rudolph Ackermann, December, 1809). Shown here are richly carved, elegant mahogany chairs gilt in gold. “They may be covered with the best red morocco leather, velvet, or (which is far more elegant) rich damask silk, ornamented with rich Persian fringe…” Published by Rudolph Ackermann, this monthly magazine showcased interior decoration with vibrant color plates. Designs came from French and British craftsmen, but the magazine circulated widely, including in Philadelphia where it had a great influence. The Library Company acquired the first two volumes of the periodical soon after publication. Stylish Books : Designing Philadelphia Furniture on display through April 26, 2019. #LCPstylishbooks #LCPexhibits #PhiladelphiaFurniture #DecorativeArts #1800s #FurnitureDesign #specialcollections #LCPrarebooks #IGlibraries #librariesofinstagram
