I am so glad you joined me for this post, in fact I am pretty excited about it! this week I finished off my Victorian underthings. I used a pattern from Truly Victorian (pattern number TV102) It is for a chemise and drawers. I also took a online sewing class by Jenifer Rosbrugh you can find all of her amazing classes with this link https://classes.historicalsewing.com/courses or just search ‘The Historical Sewing School’. I highly recommend these classes and they really helped me gain some confidence back. The videos are very easy to follow and she replies to any questions very quickly.
I got the cap tutorial here ( http://www.sewhistorically.com/how-to-sew-an-authentic-mid-victorian-day-cap-tutorial/ ) again that was an awesome resource and my first successful cap (without a pattern too!) I did sew it by machine instead of the different handstitches but….
Anyway let us get to the photos…..enjoy….
A noise, a rustle, a cry through the night. It pierced through the old house’s wall and she heard it. Her blood went cold and a shiver snaked down her spine…. sleep had vanished from her mind. She threw off her quilts and stepped onto the cold floor. She reached for the lantern and fumbling with the match touched the flame to the kerosene wick. Then padded softly to the door and opened the latch, with a creek it closed behind her. It wasn’t only only the night chill that made her shiver.
Well, do you like the outfit? Does it give you an old fashioned feel?
What do you think is ‘out there’ in the night? A panther? A wounded soldier? I would love to hear all of your ideas.
If you want to see more awesome photo edits like these check out my older sister Brooke’s Instagram page fade_and_flare and let her know what you think.
I hope you enjoyed, and it is my prayer that this post will give you encouragement to go tackle your next tough project, and remember that with faith in God you can face the most frightening ‘noises in the night.’
