1913 Outfit

Another (mostly) finished project! My 1913 outfit inspired by a mix of Upstairs Downstairs season 4, Downton Abbey, and a history project from school. It came together very quickly considering there were practically no directions! I got the patterns from Past Patterns. It looks better on, but I haven't had time to do even a quick photo shoot!!

American Duchess Shoes

The American Duchess has come out with a beautiful line of historical shoes. Her new shoe is on pre sale now.....

The Devonshires are a leather 18th century shoe based on museum examples from the 1760s through 1780s.  They're made of top-grade dyable leather, with a beautiful, smooth Italian leather sole for dancing, and are hard-wearing, water- and mud-proof, for even the toughest of outdoor re-enactments.

Pre-Order the Devonshires through August 10, and get the special $100 price.  We're only making 200 of these shoes, so don't miss the chance to own one of only a couple hundred pair on the planet!  Visit to order.

Both The Georgianas and The Devonshires are absolutely gorgeous and on sale until August 10th.
