A perfect lady Sherlock costume for a foggy London. I bought this book back in Pavlovsk by a lucky chance. Imagine me walking out of the museum, inspired by all these beautiful costumes, and - in the bookshop - seeing absolutely nothing on the topic. Suddenly, I notice something among the usual tourists guides on the palace, and it is this! one! book! remaining. So never stop digging, even when the hope is lost :D #pavlovsk #periodfashion #cape #1890s
Yesterday, in an uncharacteristic flurry of activity, I decided to move everything from our ‘storage’ room to the attic rooms and make way for a bed. Next weekend we’re due to have an interstate visitor and there’s not a solitary space clear, unless she wants to sleep on a couch in the hall! So I moved boxes upstairs for an hour and contemplated where to put the bed... which just happened to be the trigger for my friend to ring and say she’d forgotten to tell me she’s not coming!!! I mean, what the freaking hell!!! Could her ears not have burnt an hour before I started lugging stuff?? The upside is, I got my 10k steps for the day done and I listened to a playlist I made for The Story of Us Trilogy. It made me want to open up my laptop and start writing emotional love scenes again. See?! Every cloud does have a silver lining... unless it’s a dust cloud and then it’s sort of grey and sneezy. . . . . #countrystyle #countrystylemag #farmhousestyle #view #palingfence #secretgarden #1890s #farmhouse #rustic #oldfence #gate #myvintagehome #oldhouse #friends #visitors #saturday #countrylife #farmlife #tassie
The 1890s called. They want their plaid back. Here's my next project: a white cotton shirtwaist and a plaid skirt for Oakland Cemetery's Sunday in the Park. This is the finished mock up, self drafted, and my fabric! So excited for historical wear again 🍂 . . . #1890sfashion #belleepoque #1890s #historicalcostuming
“Gertie & Jay Phillips” enjoying some Saturday night shenanigans, circa 1890. Her dress sure doesn’t look like fat pants to me. 🤔 #foundphoto #foundphotography #oldphoto #cabinetcard #antiquestorefinds #parlorlyfe #funandgames #saturdaynight #pictureinapicture #1890s #1890sfashion

Another Saturday, another ten tonne of dust to sweep up. Seriously, I have no idea how so much crap can come inside one house in such a short amount of time. 🤷🏼‍♀️I mean, it’s only been two months since I swept the floor. Kidding. I actually wipe everything down at least twice a week atm or it does my head in. I’m happy to live with holes in the floor and unfinished building works but I won’t live in dirt. And don’t get me started on the knee deep mud we had in the drive over winter. I could sign up for Circe Du Soleil, the balance skills I have now. 🤸‍♂️ Have a great day everyone! . . . . #kitchendesign #kitchen #saturdaymorning #1890s #sashwindows #loveoldhouses #countrystyle #blossoms #myvintagehome #myvintageinterior #mycountryhome #mycounrtystyle #myfarmhouse #myvintagefarmhouse #depressionfurniture #urn #interiors #mantle #fire #countrystylemag #homebeautiful #oldhouselove #vintagefarmhouse #rusticdecor #farmhousedecor #vintagedecor #decorating #repurposedfurniture
High tea @alberton to commemorate 125 years of women's suffrage. . On 19 September 1893 the governor, Lord Glasgow, signed a new Electoral Act into law. As a result, New Zealand became the first self-governing country in the world in which women had the right to vote in parliamentary elections. . . #truevintageootd #vintage #edwardian #victorian #vintagemenswear #vintagefashion #1890s #1900s #historicalfashion

Title: The Reaches of New York City. Mapmaker: Albert H. Bumstead (1874 - 1940) Date: c1939 Technique: Colour engraving Very decorative pre-world war II map of New York surrounded by numerous portraits of famous persons. Inset of South Jersey at lower right. Bumstead was an American cartographer and inventor, born in Boston in 1875, and attended Worcester Academy. He went  to Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) and studied civil engineering. After WPI, he was a surveyor for the U.S. Geological Survey. In 1912, he was the topographer of the Yale University expedition to Peru, and by 1916 he was a cartographer at the National Geographic Society.
Inspiration can come from anywhere- here’s the last page of Chapter 1 of Mosaic Staircase, with a crowd scene sketched from a postcard I picked up in Norway of Edward Grieg’s 60th birthday. We were on our 10th wedding anniversary cruise around the fjords, but somewhere in my mind I must have thought this would be useful for the graphic novel!
So excited! Just got my new phone! I have officially joined the 90’s.....#1890s that is! All ready for the future.... 🤣🤣🤣🤣

🌈 Happy Friday 🌈 Here is a very rough floor plan of our house. Tonight’s job is to mark where we want sockets ready for the rewire 🏡 We hadn’t planned to knock any walls down in the house but on the top floor we have forfeited the 5th bedroom for an ensuite and swapped what was the ensuite to a dressing room. Moving the ensuite has given us more headroom and the ability to have a shower cubicle 🚿 Hubby wants to knock reception 2 into the conservatory to make one large space but I’m not convinced yet 🤔 🔨👷🏻‍♂️#victorianhouse #victorianrenovation #1890s #instahome #instahomedecor #decorating #decorinspo #housetohome #renovation #renovationproject #interiordesign #rewire #victorianfloorplan #followfriday

As I've just worked through the 1890s in Madame Weigel's pattern series, a typical example of not only what women had to sew, but to wear. High draped collars were universal, huge pleated sleeves with linings, lined bodices, inset vests, exagerrated shapes and trims. I can't imagine the patience and hours needed to sew such a confection - and this not to most extreme example! And so hot! ¤¤¤ #sewinghistory #1890sfashion #1890s #legomuttonsleeves #fashionhistory #sleeves #linings #collars #bodices #exaggeration #difficulttomake #weigelspatterns #ladieswear #madameweigelspatterns #clothinghistory #fashionillustration #jacket #hugecollar
Throwback to this awesome house I lived in while I was in my senior year at @collegeofcharleston ! My friend and I rented to top floor, which included that super cool tower on top of the roof with 360 degree windows! My love for old homes began in Charleston, and I lived in a few 1890s houses during my 6 years there. Living here was truly special. My cat would hang out on the roof and we would blast music out of the tower (one time the cops showed up and couldn't believe it when they didn't see a party inside...just two girls playing Talking Heads and singing too loud) Happy to have experienced the best of Charleston! #charlestonsc #oldhouses #iloveoldhouses #1890s #realestate
From the same decade as the Devonshire House costume ball, which happens to be the current episode of @dressfancypodcast [seamless link], I am in love with this robe, soon to be auctioned by @kerrytaylorauctions • Dating from the 1890s, this unusual man’s robe is included in our upcoming auction • The deep purple velvet and gold embroidery are reminiscent of Ottoman pieces, however the stylised flower-heads and couched threads seen here are typically Japanese. The un-refined nature of the appliquéd flying birds adds to the oddness of this piece. Perhaps it was made at the request of an eccentric European? • Oh, and it weighs A TON! • (Estimate £150-250) #KTAbid#rarevintage #japanesedesign #antiquefashion #mensfashion #purplevelvet #ottoman #fancydress #embroidery #fashionhistory #1890s
Shots of the interior of the church’s stone (main) building. The ceiling is made up of a combination of wood and adorned stained glass (left). The patron saint of San Juan, San Juan Nepomuceno (top right), main church entrance and exit (bottom right). #POTD #SanJuanNepomucenoChurch #SanJuanBatangas #Historical #IGtravel #FamilyChurch #Ancestral #Salapare #1890s #Filipino #FilipinoAmerican #Philippines #Instapic #Instalike #Catholic
San Juan was home to many seamstresses before World War II, and as a result many of the town’s mid-century Singer sewing machines that were salvaged after the Japanese bombings have been turned into decor for each table (not pictured). Here is some of the historical photographs and wall decor around the cafe’s entrance, including an early picture of the coffee shop dated circa late 1940s. - Len 🇵🇭 #Batangas #SanJuanBatangas #KapengBarako #BarakoCoffee #Philippines #IGtravel #Filipino #FilipinoAmerican #Coffee #Cafeno #Coffeehouse #Historical #1890s #1940s #Instagram #Instapic #Vintage #Photograph
This right now. Located just a few blocks from my uncle’s house on the corners of Luna and Rizal Streets is Cafeño, a charming and vintage (but not in the gentry and pretentiously out of place Hipster sort of way) 1890 heritage home turned coffee house in the heart of Downtown San Juan that has been a part of the community since the late 1940s. While the Batangas region is known as the coffee capital of the Philippines, the Barako condensada and homemade ice cream are definitely worth a try.

Happy Wednesday! I enjoyed doing a quick sketching of my #vampire character for the second #highballandpepe #comic book. It's late #1890s in #neworleans . Agents Higball and Pepe are on assignment in the City to protect #Homerplessy as he prepares bringing his lawsuit to the Supreme Court.( #plessyvferguson ). As racial tensions heat up and begin to boil, a mysterious vigilante Vampire bloodies the mix by eliminating corrupt officials and high members of a secret order of supremacists intended on keeping segregation laws. Will he be a villain or an ally to the agents?.....:) Highball and Pepe combines steampunk fantasy with real history and relevant social issues. #steampunk #frenchquarter #comicbook #segregation #14thamendment #railway #beignets #Hawaiiancomicbookalliance #donaldinacameronhouse #chineseexclusionact #immigrantsgetthejobdone #equality #civilrights
I've got Doucet on my mind, and this late Victorian ball gown which combines severity and frou-frou in equal parts, with a strong nod to 18th century fashion, is my current favourite of his house's creations.⠀ .⠀ Ball gown, Jacques Doucet (French, Paris 1853–1929 Paris), 1897, silk, Metropolitan Museum of Art, 49.3.26a, b⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #doucet #houseofdoucet #18thcenturyinspiredlook #jacquesdoucet #couture #pinkandblack #victoriancouture #victorianfashion #victorianstyle #victorianhistory #latevictorian #latevictorianstyle #1890s #1890sstyle #1890sfashion #fashionhistory #historicanfashion #costumehistory #costumehistorian #victorian #victoriandress #victoriancostume #1890sdress #history #fashionhistoryblogger #18thcenturyinspired #historyblogger #thedreamstress

Side by side of Winona's and my Mina costumes. While I know there are things about my costume that are not exact (like the shades of green), I am really happy with the overall patterning and draping. It might be one of my favorite costumes I've made. It's definitely a sentimental favorite, because I just love Winona Ryder and the aesthetic of the movie so much. I still can't believe I get to wear this costume and see it hanging in my own closet. Cosplay is a magical thing. 💚 (Side note: We decided not to book any photoshoots at DragonCon in keeping with our "no schedule, no responsibilities" policy this year. So you will have to be patient till we get around to doing a proper Mina/Dracula photoshoot. 😳) #cosplay #cosplaysidebyside #dracula #bramstokersdracula #dragoncon #draculacosplay #minacosplay #minamurraycosplay #minamurray #winonaryder #eikoishioka #costume #costuming #costumedesign #sewing #costuming #historicalcostume #victorian #victoriancostume #horror #horrorcostume #gothic #gothiccostume #1890s #horrorcosplay

George Pullman and Eugene Debs appear to face off in this spread from a scrapbook on the Pullman Strike, compiled around the time of the strike in 1894. Using clippings of articles and illustrations from newspapers, the scrapbook's creator documented the railroad strike, in which American Railway Union factory workers, led by Debs, walked out over reductions in wages and paternalistic policies put into place by the Pullman Company. We hope that you are enjoying the September challenge, #nothiddenlabor , as much as we are. In addition to the labor strike featured in today’s post, this post is the product of hidden labor not just by the scrapbook's compiler and by us in the Transportation Library, but also by the library's Repository & Digital Curation unit, which digitized the crumbling scrapbook to make it accessible for public use; and the wonderful people at @nul_prescons , who made a facsimile for circulation and public use based on those scans. Thanks to our partners @utsaspeccoll and @laborarchiveswa for co-hosting! . . . .

Wednesday: Neat placket with a hand sewn bar tack at the bottom. Ready for some hooks and eyes.
1895 год. Старая церковь Гертруды. Рижский архитектор, выпускник Санкт-Петербургской Академии Художеств Иоганн Даниэль Фельско, в 1864 году возглавил строительство нового каменного здания - церкви Гертруды. Строительство завершили в 1866 году, но саму церковь освятили лишь в 1869 году. Церковное здание красного кирпича построено в эклектическом стиле с влиянием неоготики. В ней три нефа. Декоративные элементы здания – порталы, карнизы, украшения башен, оконный массверк - отлиты в бетоне. Необычный каскад из фиалов придаёт церкви индивидуальность. Высота церковного шпиля - 63 метра

I've only just discovered the work of Czech artist Václav Brozík, and love his depictions of fashion! This is 'At the Ball', 1898, showing intricate draping to create those wide shoulders. Width is exacerbated through the waist-cinching belt, reminiscent of 1860s Swiss waists. #1890s #arthistory #portrait #painting #ballgown #costumehistory
Her Ladyship being most patriotic in 1898 🇺🇸⚓️🇪🇸
