We welcome a new line of patterns from the UK, Harlots and Angels. This company has been making corsets and custome clothing in their studios in Britain with 25 years of experience. They have released patterns for some of their products so that you may create great fitting corsets and period or Steam Punk attire.
Keep an eye out while we add more of the patterns to our pages.
Just out from Laughing Moon is a 1840-1863 Ball Gown pattern ready for you to whip up all that fantastic shiny fabric you have been waiting to get on a dance floor. Great for Dickens or bridal wear, has several bodice treatments and comes with plain or flounced skirt.
Check them out in our Romantic to Mid-Victorian Periods section in the patterns department.
And how to re-create those looks
This fall has seen the return of some great action and costumed shows, like Hell on Wheels and fantasy costumes in Once Upon a Time. And then there are some new shows, like The Paradise on PBS. We will take a look at some of these shows and how to get the looks so you can step out in style at the next event or convention you attend.
I really like Hell on Wheels for a gritty western show. Often we see many costumed dramas all about women or women’s subjects. There are a few men spotted here and there as love interests. This show is quite the reverse. It’s mostly men, and the attire is very well done, right down to the fastenings and details. While all of these shows do make us scratch our heads and go, was that really period, I have to say the men’s costumes on this show are fantastic, and they wear fantastic hats as well. The aging process is used on many of the garments. For a behind the scenes look at the making of the costumes for the series, visit the site.
The Paradise is a frothy look at England and shopping during Victorian times. The early bustle period is evident, and many of the ladies wear some very elegant dresses. Quite a contrast from the wild west of course. The story follows Denise, a shop girl with bright ideas. You will see plenty of ladies in bustles in this show, and quite a few well dressed men.
