Wow, I was so encouraged by your comments on my video blog that I decided it might be fun to try it again! Here’s a second video, answering two questions: “What is your favorite pattern?”, and asking to see close up shots of something I made. I decided to do both in this blog and talk about Truly Victorian’s 1875 Parisian Trained Skirt, and show details of the my green plaid bustle dress.
I noticed I made a few mistakes in the video, so I hope you’ll forgive me! Mostly technical terms, but I also realized the front of the skirt is cut in three pieces, so there are more pieces than I said to the pattern.
I also forgot to show you the cover of the book I mentioned, which features, what I assume, is one of the inspiration images for the pattern design.
The book is Victorian & Edwardian Fashion- A Photographic Survey. You can pick it up on Amazon for really inexpensively, and it’s a fabulous book to have for inspiration.
Any thoughts or comments on this video blog? Please do let me know! I would love to do more video blogs, so I appreciate your feedback!
