Period Clothing Patterns and Cutting Diagrams IMPORTANT: Notes On Using Our Patterns These patterns are reproduced from original period patterns and from cutting diagrams found in English, French and American publications of the 19th and early 20th centuries. Those copied from full-sized patterns were scanned in at 1/2, 1/4 or 1/8 of the original size as indicated on each piece. They can be printed out and enlarged on a photocopier, projector, digitally, or by hand. The scale in inches is also given on each piece, in case they do not print out true to size. Patterns copied from cutting diagrams have been scanned in at 1 to 1½ times original size and are not to scale. We also include period cutting layouts and diagrams which are not always to scale. All of these patterns come in one size only: that of the original. Please click on a title or scroll down the page to view our selection

DIY - Flower Crown i love flowers and i love flower crowns even more. i'm going to show you how to make your own in just a few simple steps. perfect for a special occasion, a wedding or if you just want to feel pretty. this project costs around $15, but you can make several crowns so the cost is actually much lower. you can make a few different head pieces for yourself or make one for a friend. here's what you need... you can find all of these materials at your local craft store. i suggest buying high end fabric or silk flowers for a more realistic looking head piece. step one: create a circle that fits comfortably around your head, that is easy to take on and off. i tripled the amount of wire and then wraped a fourth time around to make it extra sturdy. step two: cut your first bloom and place it in the desired direction on the crown. using a small 4 inch piece of wire, wrap the bloom tightly with wire to the circle with pliers.

How to Make Steampunk Jewelry Wikipedia defines Steampunk as “a subgenre of fantasy and speculative fiction that came into prominence in the 1980s and early 1990s. The term denotes works set in an era or world where steam power is still widely used-usually the 19th century, and often set in Victorian era England-but with prominent elements of either science fiction or fantasy, such as fictional technological inventions like those found in the works of H. G. Wells and Jules Verne, or real technological developments like the computer occurring at an earlier date.

WOMAN'S CLOSED KNICKERS From the woman's drawers pattern shown previously a pattern of closed knickers may be developed These have usually the back part cut lower than the front, and set into a separate band, fastening upon the remainder of the garment several inches below the waist. The only other important difference is the narrowing of the pattern for neatness, especially if thick material is being used. Sometimes the waistband is cut in one with the garment, as shown in the diagram below, sometimes the section CDEF forms a band cut by itself and sewn to the front. The opening in a woman's knickers should not be cut straight down, nor in the middle of the garment, but is much more satisfactory when cut as shown in Fig. 1, although rather more difficult to finish. The dotted lines show the lines of the drawers pattern on which alterations are made.

Setting in 18th Century Sleeves Written by Katherine Caron-Greig When looking at sleeve patterns for 18th century dresses, there's a rather striking difference when compared to modern sleeves—they have corners. This is because for much of the 18th century, sleeves were set differently than they are today. The sleeve was set in the lower half of the armscye, the dress was put on, and then the sleeve head was pleated to fit the wearer. This is a very efficient method and prevents a lot of the stress often associated with setting sleeves... yet for a seamstress sewing for and by herself, it presents a problem. How exactly do you pleat a sleeve on yourself?

It is scarcely possible in this case to demonstrate the correctness of the proportions before the pupils as in the case of the other garments. The differences in proportion between children's and women's drawers are caused (1) by the differences of bodily form, the child having relatively a much shorter leg, and (2) by the manner in which the clothes are worn. The child's knickers do not often reach to the knee, while girls' and women's knickers must have the bands below the knee, and allow plenty of room for bending the knee. The length may be measured in two ways: (1) Measure from waist at back to knee, with leg bent so as to get the longest possible measure; (2) measure from waist to knee (front) and take one and a half times the length measured.
