Chinese fashion by 姑蘇客
THIS IS THE MOST RELEVANT THING I’VE EVER SEEN ON THE INTERNET. EVER.
Casually fixing this every time it crosses my dash.
I like the fixed version better.
Successfully draped and cut my bustle and apron! Except I accidentally made an ~interesting~ set of seams in my effort to do it all in one piece and have cf & cb on folds….and I kind of backed myself into a corner concerning the placket.,,.,,😢😵 time to close it up and fudge a new opening maybe?????? 😂

I was hoping to clean those up and rearrange according to the regions one day, but who am I kidding. Feel free to ask for which is which // more info.
From annual trips to local museums, The State Museum of Oriental Art and The State Historical Museum of Russia this time, featuring:
Middle Oka III-VII Central Asia IV-VIII
Crimean Goths VI-VII Volga Finns X-XI
Kiev XII-XII Uzbekistan XX
Update on the dinner dress. Underskirt has been constructed, and I’m currently waffling over whether to alter the shape. I had to alter the pattern to accommodate a larger shape than it expected…. And before anyone asks, the black cotton towards the waist is to reduce bulk (and it’s also a period measure to save fabric). It’ll be covered by the overskirt ☺️

More jellyfish progress 🐙 I finished the sleeves (which I am fairly confident I got correct (for reference, I’m basing a lot of this off of the Edwardian wedding dress I posted the other day!) and I found a really cool belt at the thrift store that will go perfectly 👌 bonus pics of jellyfish bits and then the original toile that I ended up unpinning and trying again lol 😥
Next: collar, belt, shoulder details, more details…. (also can anyone tell where the openings are?? 🤗)
