A few weeks ago I got three projects photographed, including my Striped Edwardian Gown, which is the one I’ll be sharing photos of today!
I have two blog posts about making this dress and hat. They can be read here, and here.
This dress was such a fun project to work on, and I’m really happy with the end result. It fits nicely, I have a lot of mobility in it, and I think it looks quite authentic.
To add to the authenticity I decided to use my real hair for this shoot – and I’m so glad I did! It looks a lot softer and (for obvious reasons) more realistic than my wigs. My styling skills have ways to go, but I’m going to practice and use my hair more often with future projects.
As far as foundations go, I wore this costume over my white and pink chemise, my pink and white corset, a bust pad, and white chevron socks…And I’m just realizing I never blogged about any of those pieces. But you may have seen them in spotlight videos on my youtube channel.
Since the shoes show, I bought a pair of these* in white – which aren’t as comfortable as the black ones, but compliment the dress nicely. And these earrings* which are from the Downton Abbey collection.
I was so comfortable wearing this costume. I’m not sure that shows, but it was the best I’ve felt in a costume in a long time!
Now onto the pictures!
That’s it for this set, but I will have more to share soon! I haven’t been thrilled with what I’ve accomplished so far this year, and seeing photos of completed works makes me feel a bit better about things. So I have plans to take more soon.

Love this! Love the setting as well. Is that the Vanderbilt house?
Angela such a beautiful dress and the setting for you photos so perfect! congratulations on another gorgeous and inspirational make 🙂
I think your hair looks great! Nice styles and lovely waves. 🙂 I’m all for using your own hair as much as possible. It’s a fun (and frustrating) adventure to try and make it do lots of different things.
Lovely pictures! Even though this ensemble is so simple and “plain” compared to your normal costumes, it’s absolutely gorgeous! And I’m so jealous of your hair; it’s looks amazing.
You are a most beautiful woman. Your diversity in makes are most inspiring. Best wishes.
YOU ARE INCREDIBLE !!! And so very pretty thank you !!! Everything thing is beautiful !!!!💕
Stunning as usual. Love all your photos and blogs. Always learn a few tricks which help.
Oh that is so SO beautiful. The backdrop is perfect too. It’s like a window onto history. I really really love this ensemble.
Great as usual. The dress seem so “légère” on you and the color is perfect, timeless. Love the hat, love the hat. I was in Paris last November and right below the condo was a “chapelière”. The store was gorgeous and I took the time to look at every hat. It was like to be in front of a pastry window. I have fabrics close to what you use for the dress and I intend to do something for my 2 granddaughter. Pink go great for every woman. Keep up the good work.
Oooo, it really does look absolutely lovely on you! Great photo set. 🙂
You look so beautiful! I love that your costumes and accessories are so affordable. You are such an amazing young woman. You will go far!
This is an absolutely charming ensemble! It is so dead-on in terms of color, scale, detail; really wonderful work. And to be honest, your face has a very Edwardian look to it, so you look just perfect, and as if you just stepped out of a fashion plate of the time. Thanks for the share!!
Just coming back to drool over the photos again, and noticed how complicated your hairstyle is. Have you got any close-ups of it you could share? I like your plan to use your own hair more in future, and thought I’d recommend (in case you don’t already know of it) Loepsie’s You Tube channel, and in particular her Beauty Beacons playlist. See https://www.youtube.com/user/Loepsie – she recreates historical hairstyles with how-to tutorials and it’s great stuff.
Lovely, the beautiful dress is only surpassed by the model. You are one talented young lady. I know you will go far with your exceptional talent and dedication.
Lovely dress and amazing photos!
Sometimes I see your beautiful photos and wonder if you were born in the wrong era. Wonderful photos of gorgeous dresses!
I adore this! You are so talented! Thanks so much for sharing.
The above mentioned post is the last on I received, posted June 24, if I am not mistaken.
I wanted to find out if you are still posting, your designs, I have found them to be very interesting. I hope that all is in order.
If you could please let me know if you still do these postings, I would appreciate it.
Kind regards Eckhard
