#bergerehat

Just before I began my move I achieved a small personal bucket list dream and that was to see a Bluebell field. Everytime I went I always either couldn’t find it or missed the blooms, so I wa a thrilled to find one this tome and it is as breathtaking as you would imagine. It was also the perfect setting to photograph my “Valkyrie” dress which is just a modernized 18th century Chemise a la Reine. - - - - - - - - - - - - - 〰️ —— It turned out so lovely considering I heavily modified the back of the original pattern to include the deep “V” back that accidentally wound up with a beautiful draping effect and the sleeves to be more of a modern quarter sleeve. It’s made of white cotton lawn. The bodice is lined with red heavy weight linen and the skirt a lightweight white linen. It’s so airy and comfy. It even has a 10inch train. - - - - - - - - - - 〰️ —— Also a bonus photograph of the original concept sketch for the Valkyrie dress and a photograph of me sewing in the new sewing studio of the apartment. Which the lighting was so kind to me that it turned out exquisitely beautiful. - - - - - - - - - - - - 〰️ ——- #chemisealareine #historicalfashion #modernhistoric #18thcenturyfashion #18thcentury #pastoralfashion #bergerehat #bluebells #spring #valkyrie #ethereal #angleic #handmade #seamstress #photoshoot #springfashion #summerfashion #chicagoseamstress

It's dreary here today, so here's a picture from last weekend when the sun was out. This is my pierrot jacket in Colonial Williamsburg reproduction print cotton, petticoat in @renaissancefabrics striped taffeta, bergere and leather mitts from the wonderful @pennyrivercostumes . I'd swear this whole outfit weighs less than a pound and is a dream to wear!

Some failed pictures accidentally turn out to be nice (I wanted to make a picture of the new skirt I made but I couldn't resist the call of the cat) #bergerehat #libertyfabric #historicalsewing #cutecat #courtyard #18thcenturyshirt #historybounding

The modest size of these ladies is in stark contrast to most mid-18th century women, who typically took up three times as much space as a man. ⠀⠀ Their wide panniered gowns could extend out several feet on each side, a show of status for the wealthy but a topic for ridicule to some. Panniers were the height of fashion at the time, accentuating the female figure and allowing elaborate fabrics to be shown off to their best. These ladies can also be seen wearing a type of hat known as a bergère (a term now used for a type of French upholstered armchair), which was similarly in vogue. ⠀⠀ Made in Staffordshire around 1750-70, the figures in this so called ‘arbour group’ were moulded and then finished by hand prior to glazing. ⠀⠀ #bonhamsceramics #bonhams #ceramics #pottery #britishceramics #ceramicsofinstagram #englishpottery #antiquepottery #earlypottery #antiquehome #staffordshire #staffordshirepottery #glaze #panniers #18thcentury #fashion #gown #arbourgroup #pannieredgown #dress #arbour #bergerehat #pottery

Wanna look like a nice + sweaty Shepherdess in the year of our lord 1750? I made a super short + possibly funny video of a simple straw Bergère Hat. It’s 30 seconds and it’s almost a tutorial::: link in bioöooöoø

Hey, look at me coming out of the woodwork! I realized I haven‘t posted on my grid since last year... whoops. Truth is, I feel like I don‘t have anything to post. I‘m making stuff but I haven‘t taken any pictures. And I realized I‘m not one of those people who gets really productive in lockdown. But I got around to finally editing this set of photos taken last October of my bestie Beccy (who has no instagram) in a gown I made for her. Allow me to get soppy for a minute, because I miss that lady. Haven‘t seen her except on a screen in 7 weeks 😢 So have some pretty autumn magic hour goodness with my favourite human. P.S. Yes I know the hat is too big for the hairstyle. The hair was done in like 30 minutes so we wouldn‘t lose the light and the hat happened to match the dress. Don‘t @ me 😉 . . . Handsewn cotton-print (@ikeadeutschland ) Italian gown and red cotton petticoat, worn over shift, stays and split rump (from the @americanduchess guide to 18th century dressmaking) Accessories: neckerchief, fake-chatelaines and a straw bergere hat . . . . . . . Everything you see is handsewn and patterned by me.

My first straw bergere hat is done. And according to my fingers also the last. It took five days to complete and I had to rest my wrist for one day inbetween because it was super stiff. #bergerehat #bergere #blueribbon #18thcenturyfashion #18thcentury #18thcenturyaccessories #strawhat #handmade #handsewn #hatsewing #sewing #hut #18jahrhundert #reenactment #rokoko

On the agenda today was a very inspirational video meeting with @somnolentimages about our upcoming projects, and after that I also squeezed in some editing of the "making of" video of the white bergère hat! What did you do today? 😊🌷 . . . . . . . . #historicalcostuming #historicalcostume #costuming #costume #costumer #costumedesign #millinery #hatmaking #hat #bergerehat #18thcenturyhat #18thcenturyfashion #handmade #fashionhistory #oldfashion #rococo #rococostyle #rococofashion #18thcenturyhair #18thcenturyaccessories #historicalhair #livinghistory #handsewing #sewing #crafting #crafts #sewcialdistancing #hairstyle

I am sewing a straw bergere because why not. The problem is that I forgot I was allergic to the material and have to be super careful to not sew too much in one go. 🤦‍♀️ Also I kind of attached it the wrong way around? All the hats i saw had the straw going under the other and not over. Not too sure if this will make a big difference? #strawhat #sewing #bergere #bergerehat #18thcenturyfashion #18thcentury #reenactment #hat #hatsewing #18thcenturyaccessories

Con il sole i colori rendono molto meglio! 😅 Bergère in seta con decorazioni in organza panna e tessuto marezzato salmone. Nelle storie di oggi ve la mostro per bene! 😍 Se hai perso le storie precedenti nella sezione storie in evidenza ho creato una raccolta con tutti i cappelli. 😉 ✨ #valnero #historicalfashion #historicalhats #bergre #bergerehat

Sometimes we need a moment of rest. Now I have definitely more free time. thanks to that I was able to implement several projects that have been abandoned a long time ago. What am I planning for the next few weeks? My number one project is to make a new stays from 1730-1750. In my free time I embroider my new #bergerehat, #pocketbook and gold #garters for my frend. At the end I left for myself the most difficult goal - quilted petticoat. #goals #rest #break #stayhome #ridinghabit #project #18thcentury #rococo #historicalcostuming #quiltedpetticoat #18thcenturyfashion #18thcenturystays #fashionplate #fashionhistory #throwback #tricornehat #petticoat #embroidery #handembroidery
