Back in September I got obsessed with the Vaudois costume from Switzerland. I couldn't find a blouse that would have these characteristic fluffy sleeves so I decided to make my own ! So here is the result, and I can't describe the joy wearing a traditional costume gives me. We took photos in the vineyards I used to work in, as Vaud is a region famous for its wine, so the result would be as close as the original folkloric costume would be pictured 🤗 what do you think about the result ?

the thing about wearing Victorian “feminine” summer clothing in the heat is that it feels like one of those Gothic posts
you are wearing six layers and long sleeves. you are aware of this. every inch of skin from neck to floor is covered.
you are no hotter than you would be wearing your usual sleeveless modern sundress
you ARE hot, to be clear. you’re sweating. you know this to be true. “my chemise probably smells pretty bad,” you think. “I should wash it later.” you ply your fan and idly twirl your parasol. you move into the shade
you are no hotter than you would be wearing your usual sleeveless modern sundress
an event guest comes up to you, sweating profusely in shorts and a t-shirt. “Aren’t you so hot in that?” he says, fanning himself. 
“well, yes, I’m hot,” you say, “but-”
“I can’t believe our ancestors dressed like that!” he says. he walks away
you open your water bottle and sip slowly. you really should feel hotter, you think. it seems fake. layers = heat, after all. that just makes sense. you are wearing six layers and long sleeves
you are no hotter than you would be wearing your usual sleeveless modern sundress

I made some 18th Century underpinnings and wore them under semi-normal clothes to go out because fuck it, why not?
irOkay, so this started a while back with that one Bernadette Banner video about bringing back pockets as fashion. Watched it while I was trying to figure out how to restyle/resize a skirt that I loved, but was cheaply made and falling apart six months after I got it. And I knew that I wanted pockets, but couldn’t work out how to do that. 
Then I decided a while ago to make myself some 18th Century stays, pictures of which have been online before. I’ve written a whole rant on why I want stays before, and posted several blogposts about the history of stays. Not doing that here. When I made them, I decided to use some of the scrap fabric to make a pair of 18th Century pockets, the kind that you tie on under your skirts and access through holes in the outerwear. 
Tumblr media
Here they are, freshly finished. They (and the stays) aren’t historically accurate, exactly. They were made with some scrap linen/cotton blend I had lying around, and bound in bias tape I made out of some teal quilting cotton. Because teal looked damned good with that unbleached linen/cotton. 
And here they are, tied on over my stays and chemise. I figured out a really good rubric as to how big a pocket I make should be: if I can’t fit a paperback copy of Dune into the pocket, I need to make them bigger. These? They can fit Don Quixote. 
Tumblr media
Here they are once they’re on. 
Tumblr media
You can’t wear stays against your skin, and I’ve got exactly one chemise made of cotton muslin. For now. There are a few more cut out and ready to be sewn up, because you have NO IDEA how comfortable this was. 
You can also see if you followed that link that I’ve shrunk a little bit in the last few months. If this were a bra, I’d be looking at a different size. As it is, I just lace it down a bit tighter and go on with my day. If I gain a bit, which happens, I’ll lace it a bit looser and do the same. I’ve got two more sets of stays planned out as well, because this shit’s more comfortable than any bra I’ve ever worn. Also: back support. So much back support. 
Tumblr media
Adding my underpetticoat. Look at the slits at the hips, this is because I made it 18th Century style, I think it’s called “apron front?” basically the front is a drawstring you tie behind you, and the back is a drawstring you tie in front of you. The result is a skirt that expands or contracts with your body as you change size over the years.
It’s not even a “pattern,” per se. This skirt and the yellow one that’s following is literally just a bunch of rectangles sewn together with straight seams. My ancestresses didn’t have the money to waste lots of fabric on circle skirts, nor did they have the time to fiddle with weird seams. They had shit to do, much like I do now. 
Tumblr media
Yeah, the yellow one’s made mostly the same way as the underpetticoat. Two drawstrings, slits in the side giving me epic pocket access. The chemise peeks out under the tee shirt, but honestly, no one gave a shit, least of all me. I’ll make the next ones with shorter sleeves. Or I’ll make the sleeves longer and just go with it. Dunno yet. 
This is what I wore to go to the salon, do grocery shopping, and go out to lunch with my husband. No one noticed a damned thing, and the linen and cotton reacted as such materials do with heat and sweat to turn the stays into a snugly laced, supportive, REFRIGERATOR held over my torso in the first days of a Korean summer.

So my skirts didn’t have pockets today, so I tied an 18th century pocket around my waist and game fucking changer
Tumblr media
I carried my phone, a large butterfly clip, and a full sewing kit around in my pocket the entire day and still had tons of room. I am now convinced these are gods gift to man. LOOK HOW BIG THEY CAN GET
Tumblr media
You can carry books, kittens, shoes, snacks, everything in there all at once!!! And they come in all different styles!
Tumblr media Tumblr media
And you can wear them under your skirts too, as long as you have pockets slits, like this
Tumblr media
And the best part is, they’re really easy to make!!! Here are some links to different videos on how to make them if you so desire. You can also give them fun embroidery, as was fashion

Waistcoat I finished a month or so ago that I designed after 18th-century jumps— I sandwiched together a few layers of scrap fabric and wool between the top layer and lining, and then quilted them diagonally together.
Jumps were a more casual, less constructive alternative to stays made of quilted fabric. They were usually laced, but I didn’t want laces so made mine buttonable instead.
Some more accurate examples of jumps:

The silhouette of mine is pretty different, because I based mine off a men’s waistcoat pattern, but the quilting still makes it surprisingly supportive— it definitely makes me stand up straighter.
You can see the quilting a little better in this picture:

I made myself a cape to wear around the apartment in the winter
Tumblr media
I drafted a yoke for the shoulder bit because I didn't feel like dealing with shoulder darts. The main body of the cape was drafted by repurposing my circle skirt pattern.
It's dramatic and squishy and made from a heavy wool coating, lined in a bit of floral cotton sateen that I had juuuust enough of in my stash:
Tumblr media
I actually made this cape over 2 months ago for #Captember2022 but never got around to taking pictures because work was busy. At least I finally figured out how to photograph anything that goes past my waist in my bathroom mirror. (I'm standing on a chair. That's my solution. Hence why I didn't take any photos of videos of the cape swooshing, because I didn't want to fall off the chair.)
Overall a fun, low stress project that took less than a week to complete. And it keeps me warm in the winter because I'm a lizard and can't function when the room is colder than 76 F. Next time I'll probably add arm slits in the front so I can use my hands without inviting cold air into my bubble.

going to be honest
I hate wearing pants and highly revealing clothing as much as the next bitch still taking fashion cues from Le Follet, don’t get me wrong
but searching for swim dresses and getting results about How To Be A Modest Christian Wife For Jesus and Your Godly Husband makes me want to live in crop tops and yoga pants forever just out of spite

about 10 hours hand sewing later and you too can have a brand new 19th century farmer's shirt :) I made this shirt this week and I LOVE how it turned out. It's constructed with just rectangles measured to my body, and it's really easy to sew with just a running stitch and a felling stitch. I have recently gotten in to handsewing garments and i looove how peaceful and slow it is. I rarely do something intentionally slow and tedious so it's nice for a change.
The inspiration was 18th-19th century style men's shirts, and this striped linen felt very ~authentic~ to that time period, as well as the location, Sweden! I love wearing neutral colours and i do indeed love a stripe so it was perfect for this. It's basically bernadette banners pirate shirt, but not as gathered, and not the same neckline.
The button thread loops are a bit rough, but I do think it's decent for my second attempt at them. The collar of the shirt is just the top of the front and back pieces hemmed, not a hole cut out or anything, meaning that the neckline is pretty high. I like this style, but I'll be trying something different next time I make a shirt like this. This isn't period at all, just a style I like
I have realized that I want my wardrobe to look like I am a working class farmer from the Swedish countryside in the 1800's, and this is a good step in that direction! If you google the film "utvandrarna 2021" and see what they're wearing- yeah basically i want to look like that lol ----Peak farmercore----
