I love braided jackets! A couple of years ago I made an Edwardian braided cycling jacket with DIY black fabric soutache. And now I’ve made another Edwardian braided jacket – this time with gold soutache!

Instead of new fabric, I cut up a modern wool coat and used this to make my Edwardian braided jacket. 😀 And for the faux fur collar & cuffs, I used leftover pieces of a vintage faux fur bolero from my grandma. Continue reading Edwardian Braided Jacket
My Edwardian wool coat aka the never-ending coat is finally, finally finished! I call it the never-ending coat because everything went wrong with this coat what could possibly go wrong! 😆 That’s why it took me almost 10 years from the planning stages to drafting the pattern to actually finishing the coat. Continue reading Edwardian Blue Wool Coat With Faux Fur
Because I had various fabric scraps left over from other sewing projects, I made some Edwardian winter accessories. 😀 I made an Edwardian muff and Edwardian faux fur winter hat with various faux fur and cotton velvet fabric scraps. And I also made an Edwardian imitation ostrich crochet boa – something I’ve been wanting to try for a long time!
I wanted to use up all the little leftover fabric scraps, but I didn’t have high hopes that the stash busting sewing projects would look good in the end. But I’m so happy with how my Edwardian winter accessories turned out! 😊 Continue reading Edwardian Winter Accessories: Faux Fur Hat, Muff & Crochet Boa

I like to wear my Edwardian lace camisoles as historybounding summer tops. That’s why I made four more Edwardian lace camisoles! For the camisoles I only used lace and fabric scraps from my stash.

I’ve been wanting to make an Edwardian hand-embroidered eyelet lace camisole from scratch for a long time and now I’ve finally made one! Yay! 😀 I embroidered the camisole by hand, carefully cut along the embroidered scallops and then hand sewed the side seams together with Edwardian hemmed fell seams.
Eyelet lace – aka broderie anglaise – is a historical cutwork and whitework embroidery. Broderie anglaise looks beautiful, isn’t too difficult to make but takes ages to embroider! 😉 That’s why it took me a few years to finally finish my hand-embroidered Edwardian eyelet lace camisole! Continue reading Hand-Embroidered Edwardian Eyelet Lace Camisole

Inspired by antique Edwardian shirtwaists, I made an early Edwardian shirtwaist with wide tucks, cotton bobbin lace inserts, tucked bishop sleeves, pouter pigeon front, a hidden button closure and tapering tucks at the back to emphasize the waist. And as usual, I used a combination of hand and machine sewing – on my old treadle sewing machine – which is typical of the Edwardian era. Continue reading Edwardian Shirtwaist Blouse With Tucks & Lace Inserts
