Description

I love Victorian clothing and for Halloween I wanted to play the part, but not confined by the strict style of the era. I went with the top hat because I like silly hats :) This project had a lot of firsts for me. I have never done sleeves or eyelets, I have never ruffled anything or gathered anything, I have never created bias or created anything with pick-ups.

I created the skirt without a pattern combining two different fabrics using a pick-up skirt technique. The corset is based on a Butterick pattern as well as the jacket, of which I added the ruffled collar. The hat, not based on a pattern, includes the same fabric as the jacket.

Material Notes

I used decorating fabrics which were heavy weight and worked very nicely. The skirt includes silk and a rayon type fabric.
