How to Add Pockets to Pocketless Skirts & Dresses
 
06:15
A basic method for setting pockets into the side seams of your cruelly pocketless garments. Also, please do try not to be too offended by the plaid matching. I have no valid excuses. The pocket material was purchased from Amin Fabrics, NYC. All other skirt materials were purchased from somewhere on 39th st in the New York garment district, although as it was made around four years ago, I cannot recall the precise sources; however I have recently seen a similar tartan available at A&K Fabrics 39th st if you are interested.

Particularly in the realm of costuming and patterning books where book sales are significantly fewer than more commercially popular nonfiction, the writers of these essential books deserve to be compensated for the extraordinary amount of time and effort put into producing them. On occasion some books I’ve referenced are currently out of print and can only be found through Amazon, so I have posted the links if you are in immediate need; however I will update these links whenever alternative options become available.

Classical Art & Real-Life Doppelgänger: Bringing ‘Portrait of a Young Woman in White’ to Life
 
03:07
Reconstructing Jacques-Louis David’s ‘Portrait of a Young Woman in White’ (c. 1798). The gown is made entirely by hand using materials and historical sewing practices that I believe would have been used to construct the original gown seen in the portrait. For more information on the sewing process, see the following two construction videos: Part 1 - Making the Petticoat: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xbPh27NWurs&t=11s Part 2 - Reconstructing the gown: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QFOQppc8v0c Cheers to the Washington National Portrait Gallery for not throwing us out, and instead showing delightful support for our reconstruction adventures.

I can tell you from experience that settling for cheaper brands is *not* worth it as the difference in paint quality is significant. W&N paints are water soluble and so can be re-wetted and used again once dried, while most others dry into plastic and cannot be reused. This also means that the paint behaves differently on the paper during use: water soluble paints should be able to be reworked after drying, but the cheaper qualities can’t do that. I shall stop pontificating about paints now. Carry on.) Masking fluid: https://amzn.to/2SU4Q22 Background textured with tea leaves (Tetley’s English Breakfast if you must know).

ON THE USE OF PLIERS: this is likely not historically accurate, though I haven’t yet come across evidence for the more historical method of crimping the aglets. I can only hypothesise that it might have been done with a mallet, though I sadly didn’t have one available. (Do feel free to chime in if you’ve found something!)

Making an 18th/Early 19th Century Shift from an Extant Original!
 
14:37
It might be important to note that, according to the seller of the original shift, it was initially acquired from a French convent and so that might account for the slightly old fashioned (by the late 19th century) cutting and construction methods. I also suspect that the heavy quality of the linen and the position of the neckline may be more specific to the religious institutional environment of the original owner.

How I Made the Autumn Fairy Leaf Cape
 
13:03
Just in case you’re needing some nice autumn-y fairy diy project ideas for this Hallowe’en season. I should probably clarify, the method I explain for draping the cape is only how I started off; obviously due to some leaf scarcity problems, I ended up cutting it down quite a bit (in many ways I don’t entirely recall a year later). It does seem that I cut a bit of material away from the center front panels, in addition to chopping off the lower areas of these. I believe I also took some length off of the ends of the sleeves, as well as from the back at the sides. Thus this ‘quick and simple’ cape-draping method probably ended up being more work in the end, but hey—experimenting is fun. The glorious fairy wings were made by Angela Jarmon of Fancy Fairy Wings and Things (http://www.fancyfairy.com/, Instagram @fancyfairyangela). The wings in the photographs are the ‘Guinevere’ style, but the ones used for demonstration in the video are the ‘Bubble Rider’ style.
