I love the late 1890s fashion of pairing a shockingly bright colored bodice with a contrast skirt…and when I saw this “Juneberry” ribbed silk from Silk Baron…I was hooked! 😁
I finally got to make something for myself and use things I’ve been saving for way too long…I’m hoping to get some use of this cape before Spring arrives! 😄
In this video, we review the Victorian 1890s 1899 Ponderosa Cape Pattern- Reversible with Hood and Pockets by Wearing History. This is available for download as a PDF Sewing Pattern and very easy to download and put together.
For our Patrons, we will be releasing more detailed content to include details as to the specific fabrics and trims used, construction techniques, and the design choice that we made bringing this project to life. We highly recommend this pattern and you can get your copy HERE.
Proof that I cut it really close! Extant textiles are a savage gamble to use….no mistakes allowed. Photo shoot tomorrow, I’ve been hand finishing this for twelve hours straight.
