The World of fashion and continental feuilletons (1879-1880)



I have seen this in Patterns of Fashion 2 for years so it’s nice to be able to put it in context!


There is also a skirt pattern that shows the top and tailing cutting layout but also the curved upper section for fitting over the hips!



And this section is repeated a few times, handy for those who were collecting the magazines by month!



Plate 178 has a style I love, the self trimmed gown, the vertical folds at the neck.



Maybe I can do this with my princesse petticoat? It would make it so very much more useful!



There are other columes online too!

Seems like a good idea. I might make one in 1/3 scale for a doll

I knew these existed it's just so nice seeing the context :)

I don't think I can. I think my dress is so idealised it has to be a trained frock. It's okay, I'll see if there is enough blue striped fabric to make a garment to wear as a full walking ensemble :)
