No fashion era captured me more than the years of the Edwardian period, right between 1910 and 1915, after the Gibson girl years and right before fashion flew into the roaring twenties.
Dresses and clothing from that time frame represent the ultimate in femininity, style and grace to me.
For a lot of the gowns you see here, there are no patterns, as I made my own. It is my future goal to develop these designs into patterns, so they can be shared. Every dress is of my own design, a one of a kind gown. I find inspiration in the hundreds of fashion images I have collected on the internet over the years and in my collection of antique fashion magazines.
This dress was made from sandwashed navy blue rayon and has sold on e-bay to a lovely young lady who wore it to the Prom driving up in a Ford Model A. The sleeves,belt and skirt hem are from navy blue satin and the front and back of the dress has a long panel, which holds hand done silver rocailles and opalescent beading details. This was one of the first gowns I made.
