Tricorne and Victorian dress - Closeup by Eisfluegel Tricorne and Victorian dress - Closeup by Eisfluegel
This is a Victorian dress consisting of a jacket and a skirt. There's supposed to also be an overskirt, but I have to change it. ;)
On top is a tricorne I created to go with the dress. Here's a full body picture of the dress: [link]

Sewing and photography done by me.

The dress is made of blue sation with a paisley pattern and black cotton. Theres also black elastic trim on the front and sleeves of the jacket. The buttons are metal coated with black cotton. Underneath is a crinoline made of cloth and cotton wool. Very comfortable to wear. ;)
The pattern is again from Burda.

The hat is made from the blue satin, trimmed with black satin ribbon and the black elastic trim from before. And I put a black ostrich feather on the side. Inside is a material similar to buckram and some wire.

Woah gorgeous outfit you made there! :D
I've been wondering for ages: the Burda jacket patterns, are they somewhat historically correct? As in, tightly waisted? Or more like modern-day jackets :p?
Because I also have a Burda pattern (I think the same one actually) but haven't found the time yet to try it out. And since the skirt I made wasn't really what I had in mind, I'm afraid the jacket will also be kind of too straight for my likings :p

Thanks again.
I doubt that the Burda patterns are even remotely historically correct. And the jacket is not very tight, though it has a very nice fit. I guess it would be rather easy to either add a lacing in the back (I'm actually planning to do just that) or take of a few millimeter from the pattern in the appropriate places and draw some nice curves to the original pattern lines. Just take your measurements and compare them to the pattern pieces (you can easily measure along the waistline, since its printed on the pattern).

Lol true :D they're not at all historically correct :p That one skirt I once tried out was so ugly and strange, which got even worse when I wore my petticoats underneath. I had to improvise big time to make it work :p
But you're right, it's probably better to measure everything up and change the pattern up front then. And the lacing is also a very good idea actually, hadn't even thought of that yet :D

Oh, and I wanted to say that normal patterns are too short for most people (more people have a long torso and shorter legs, than the other way around ;)) so think about adding a few centimeters for height.

Thanks. Yours is not bad either. :)
I really like the pattern. Except the overskirt. It's way to bulky. I will remake it with a better pattern.
