It's pretty obvious, but I LOVE old sh!t. Especially clothes! If I go into a museum with a textile collection, I probably won't look at anything else. So it makes sense that I would have my own little mini collection. The piece I see the most for sale in NZ is definitely Edwardian chemises/corset covers. So these are mine. Aren't they stunning? The inset lace, the embroidery, the threaded ribbon. Imagine wearing such delicious underwear! . . . #antiqueclothing #antiqueclothingnz #antiquecollection #antiquesnz #historicalcostuming #edwardianclothing

⭐1930-40s 🌿 Dressing robe, negligee or maybe part of a bridal trousseau? It's beautiful but it is very loved. There are pulls, a couple holes and a splattering of ink (I like to think she was writing a love letter...) still completely wearable and would be awesome for pattern study, isolation lounging or a photo shoot where the flaws wouldn't be seen. (Like a Lady of the Lake theme with a big laurel head wreath 😍 ) Bust: 36" Waist: 26" max Wrists: 6.5" $50 with shipping included! #vintage #antique # #antiqueclothing #1930s #1940s #1930sfashion #1940sfashion #vintageclothing #buyvintage

The lining. The blouse is entirely unboned. The whole think is very light which made me questionned my first impression that it was completely lined with a fine black fabric : in fact, it isn't. The white design just doesn't show on the wrong side of the fabric. The fabric is quite opaque, no risk that of a transparent fabric that would show the underwear ! The other element that made me thought it was lined is the decorative cross grain band on the front (last 3 pictures). Because the one is actually "lined". In fact, as you can see in the last picture, the cross grain piece of fabric was actually put on the right side of the fabric (the front piece, and then each side was sandwiched-seamed with the below piece. The gathers at the waist were sewn, then covered with a black petersham band. Then all the seam allowances were patiently basted shut. #antiques #antiquebodice #antiqueclothing #1900 costume

The sleeves are gathered at the shoulders and wrist. They are slightly more gathered at the back. It would not have give a puffing big sleeve effect, it was practical: you could move and do a lot of work with sleeves like that, that is a lot more difficult with fitted sleeves. The wrist cuff is also made of cross grain fabric for visual effect #antiques #antiquebodice #antiqueclothing #1900 costume

This 1900 bodice is made to be both practical (no big frills, no trimming, or lace, no boning, no complicated closure) and yet pretty and fashionnable. I think it is 1900, but I have seen pictures of women wearing similar blouses in the early 1910s. It is a quite ubiquitious fashionnable design for the first decade of the century. It is machine sewn, and made with a lot of care. It could very well have been made by a professionnal seamstress. They did not all work for the riches ! A good clothing made by a professionnal seamstress could last longer than the same one made at home by a less skilled woman. I would have been worse investing, even for someone on a small budget. The fashionnable parts arguably testify of a more professionnal eye. The fact that the blouse has no piecing except from the two in the front peplum, shown on the penultimate picture (would have hidden under the skirt) testify that some amount of money was invested in this simple garment. Even if cotton is a rather inexpensive fabric. The blouse parts were cut with next to no waist shaping which is achieved by sewn gathers. It makes that kind of blouse more easily transformable to adapt to weight gain or the beginning of a pregnancy. No sign that it was touched on this blouse, however. On the front, near the armscye, two small pleats drop from the shoulder to just above the breast. They are sewn in white contrasting thread, while the gathers at the waist are sewn in an invisible black thread. That was done for aesthetical purposes. Next to the collar, a band of cross grain fabric that goes from shoulder to the bottom of the peplum was inserted "under" the fabric. The visual effect is cause by the cross cross stripes as well as by the layering effect. None of this two decorations are repeated in the back. Instead, the back has two pleats on each sides, going from neck to the bottom of the peplum. The seamstress uses the width of the stripes to make her pleats : on the front, they are one stripe wide, in the back 2 stripes. The gathering at the waist was made last. #antiques #antiquebodice #antiqueclothing #1900 costume

An old fur coat, tough enough for those long Canadian winters. I spotted this coat a few years ago during a #genealogy trip I took to Georgetown, Prince Edward Island, where my family lived from the early 1800s. The kind innkeepers at the Georgetown Historic Inn, where I stayed, directed me to the old General Store which is now the private home of a local school teacher and unofficial town historian. She invited me in and gave me a tour of various local treasures, old photographs and oddities. Georgetown is a tiny little town, too small to have a real museum. But I so appreciate people like this school teacher who love history enough to preserve these objects, create their own museums and share their treasures with others. #homemuseum #canadianheritage #canadianmaritimes #novascotialife #charlottetown #peicanada #anneofgreengables #lucymaudmontgomery #genealogyphotoaday #genealogie #familyhistory #familyhistorian #genealogia #ancestrydnaresults #ancestors #findingfamily #familyroots #familysearch # Canadianhistory #vintagefur #vintagecoat #historicfashion #historicpreservation #textilesdesign #museumstudies #periodfashion #periodclothing #antiqueclothing #genealogist @gtowninneastlink.ca #anneofgreengablesedit

Today is another black apparel day, with overexposed pictures, followed by the originals. This lovely, yet simple 1900 popular blouse is one of my favorite in my collection, because I just find it perfectly adorable, and if I had been living in the 1900, I would have worn that. Sadly it has this huge hole under the arm where my entire hand can fit. The blouse is of french origin, Normandy or Brittany (cities and/or french-speaking Brittany only. The country and the breton-speaking part of Brittany were mostly wearing folkloric costumes, even if the 1900 is a turning point for the disappearance of the folkloric costume in breton-speaking cities). I talked about my Ebay seller of all things popular in a previous post. I got this blouse in a lot with 3 other crumpled bodices (one of which I show'd quickly today). Honestly, they barely seamed salvageable, and I thought I was buying 4 to get (maybe) 1 decent. They were damaged, but a lot less than expected, and their biggest problems is that they are so rumpled and I cannot press them (ironing can destry old fibers) It tried pressing in this cotton one, because cotton is a less fragile fabric. I put my iron on silk mode and... absolutely no results. The steam smoother worked a thousand time better, and is actually less damaging to the fibre. This blouse was steamed once, and some of the creases are already coming back, which seems only logical : those creases and pleats are more than a hundred year in the making and fabric keeps the memory of them. It would need a least one other seance of steaming to smoooth them a bit more. #antiques #antiquebodice #antiqueclothing #1900 costume
