Getting Dressed in the 1840s - Victorian Get Ready with Me

I've been wanting to start a Youtube channel for a while now, so that I can better capture my sewing and research process, and some other fun things - like recreating original historic recipes!

Please enjoy my first video, showing all the layers I don for an 1840s daywear look. If you enjoy this content, please like the video and subscribe to my channel.



Some notes on what I'm wearing:

Shoes and stockings are from American Duchess
Chemise and corset were made from Simplicity 2890
Petticoats were drafted from the Dressmaker's Guide
Fan front cotton print dress was made from Laughing Moon #114
Muff was made from stitching together two fur cuffs from a secondhand, vintage coat
Bonnet, cloak, and gloves were all purchased secondhand!
