Truth is Stranger than Fashion

Just what is it about this early 16th century Saxon fashion, which gained its modern epithet by virtue of being portrayed in countless paintings by Lucas Cranach the Elder (1472–1553), that has so captured the imagination of the costuming world? Is it the rich, vibrant colors? Is it the garish, pimp-esque accessorizing? Is it the piquant expressions on the faces of invariably young, rosy-cheeked strawberry blonds sporting these garments that, along with their whimsical styling, can’t help but make the viewer believe just for a moment, despite all modern biases, that it was good to be alive (and rich) in 1530′s Saxony? Whatever it is, its safe to say that I was totally unaware of ANY of it until this September. Turning Heads in 1916 and 1917 – Smithsonian Libraries Blog.

Maison Bossert, spécialiste des costumes d'Alsace, La Maison Bossert au fil du temps

De la mercerie qui proposait des tissus et des ouvrages pour dames à la boutique spécialisée dans le costume alsacien longtemps située quai Turckheim à Strasbourg, l’activité a connu une évolution en phase avec l’histoire de l’identité alsacienne qui se forge autour des années 1900 et qui suscite la création des premiers groupes folkloriques. Tandis que dans les campagnes alsaciennes, les derniers costumes régionaux cèdent la place à l’uniformité de la mode occidentale, la Maison Bossert prend le relais et s’efforce de perpétuer les savoir-faire des tailleurs et des brodeuses de village, tout en continuant à vendre les fournitures nécessaires à la confection de ces vêtements d’un autre temps.

Hand sewing and the 18th century

Thank you! If hand sewing is often thought as hard work or taking too long, I also think that there is an air of superiority and elitism over it that can probably feel a bit daunting to someone who has never tried it. I would really love to see that tought go away! I do think that hand sewing gives you a better feel for the garment you sew, especially if you sew historical clothes, but it doesn’t, automatically, makes it better than one made with the help of a machine. Sewing skill is one thing, then there is the matter of choosing the right pattern, fabric and colours and knowledge about the fashion you want to re-create.

A Quick 1879 Bonnet from a 1950s Hat

I didn't have time to construct a late 1870s/early 1880s bonnet, and I'm not all that skilled at buckram construction anyway, so I looked into my hat stash to see if anything would work. I found a hat I bought last year at a Steampunk event, but had never worn. It was originally a 1950s fur felt cap of some sort, to which Steampunky gears and whatnots had been glued. The color was perfect, and the shape worked when worn way back on the head, so I decided to decorate to resemble these inspiration bonnets: I used three feather sprays from the floral section of Michaels, and some ribbons and flowers from WalMart.

Dinner dress. The bustle silhouette, although primarily associated with the second half of the 19th century, originated in earlier fashions as a simple bump at the back of the dress, such as with late 17th-early 18th century mantuas and late 18th- early 19th century Empire dresses. The full-blown bustle silhouette had its first Victorian appearance in the late 1860s, which started as fullness in skirts moving to the back of the dress.

This fullness was drawn up in ties for walking that created a fashionable puff. This trendsetting puff expanded and was then built up with supports from a variety of different things such as horsehair, metal hoops and down. Styles of this period were often taken from historical inspiration and covered in various types of trim and lace. Accessories were petite and allowed for the focus on the large elaborate gowns.

So - the few of us that were going to Fort Mifflin's Civil War Saturday changed our minds somewhere around Tuesday, after much checking of the weather forecast and deciding nobody really wanted to fall over from heat exhaustion.

Which had delicious food, by the way. Mme Demorest's Illustrated Portfolio of the Fashions for 1880 by American Duchess.
