Daily life in Satanville aka Hell. These were found in a demolished Parisian building inside a box along with an anonymous note that read: “This is the work of my life, it is thus that I dreamed of Hell. If my visions are true, then the wicked may rest assured, the afterlife will be sweet for them to bear.” 🦴🦇 #1860s
Hats off to Larry! Here he’s displaying our Famous Crab Cakes.

On its own, the drama in this painting is palpable: a man, woman, and child racing across a field on horseback, silhouetted against the first watery light of a new day. But the story behind it makes it much more powerful, and increases the urgency of this particular ride. From the museum's notes: "Eastman Johnson portrayed an enslaved family charging for the safety of Union lines [during the American Civil War] in the dull light of dawn. The absence of white figures in this liberation subject makes it virtually unique in art of the period—these African Americans are independent agents of their own freedom. Johnson claimed to have based the painting on an actual event he witnessed near the Manassas, Virginia, battlefield on March 2, 1862, just days before the Confederate stronghold was ceded to Union forces." . In the distance to the left, the bayonets of the soldiers gathering for battle are barely visible, glinting in the pale light. There must have been little time for second thoughts in this escape; the family carries nothing with them, and the horse was either found wandering, or stolen. The man looks forward to the future while the woman glances back to what - with luck - has been forever left behind.

This week's Rate the Dress is this 1860s number in bold stripes. It fascinates me because the stripe pattern is so clear that if you determined out the exact width and spacing of the stripes, you could back-engineer the pattern of the dress just from three photographs.⁣⠀ .⁣⠀ Click through the link in my bio, and then click on this image again, to see more photos of it, and to rate it.⁣⠀ .⁣⠀ Robe à transformation (day bodice only), 1868-72, Les Arts Décoratifs⁣⠀ .⁣⠀ .⁣⠀ .⁣⠀ .⁣⠀ .⁣⠀ #1860s #crinolinegown #crinolineera #bustle #stripes #ratethedress #fashionhistory #fashionhistorian #historicaldress #historicalfashion #costumehistory #costumehistorian #historicalcostumer #victorian #victoriandress #victoriancostume #midvictorian #victorianera #victorianfashion #hoopskirt #hoopskirtera #hoopskirtfashion #thedreamstress

A total experiment. #1830s sleeves on an #1860s bodice. For a brief evening gig to help out a small museum, there's a 5 minute 1830s #mourning vignette. Of course, I don't have 1830s mourning or mourning in general, but was considering eventually making an 1860s mourning dress anyway for Memorial Day stuff at FOMC. So after the two rounds of quick vignettes this weekend, I can pull the sleeves off, recut them as gathered bishop sleeves, and reattach for 1860s.
Happy President’s Day! Did you know that Arvine Chaffee and Eliza Wales were big Abraham Lincoln supporters? The dress on the right belonged to Eliza, and according to the family, she took it on their honeymoon. That honeymoon was to Abraham Lincoln’s second inauguration. Does your family have any presidential connections? . . . . #happypresidentsday #presidentsday #abrahamlincoln #1860s #vintagedress #historicdress #springhillhh

Windy skirt! Yesterday, the weather was crazy. It rained, it hailed, and the wind didn’t want to stop. I was so grateful for this paletot and hood I made years ago. . . The paletot and my dress were both wool, and they were wonderful in the rain. The water just beaded and rolled right off! I also had a muff, which was very warm, and I’m so glad I thought to pack the knit mitts. They were just from a Target, but were much warmer than my little leather gloves. The bonnet came along but stayed in the car. Haha I’m never going to get a chance to wear that thing! . . #1860s #calicoghosttown #paletot #historicalsewing #historicalcostuming #civilwarreenactment
The utterly hilarious Shea Jones wearing her custom made Norfolk suit, as Frank Goodman in The Gainesville Theatre Alliance’s Men on Boats. So British. There wasn’t just one suit in particular that stole my heart, so I shoved details of a bunch of different ones into Goodman’s. The goal was to look like a Sherlock Holmes character was dropped off in the middle of a western. #costume #costumedesign #costumesesigner #menonboats #theatre #theater #livetheatre #womenintheatre #norfolk #norfolksuit #norfolkjacket #tailoredsuit #tailored #spats #british #sewing #handmade #victorian #1860s #wool #suit #vest #sherlockholmes
WASHINGTON WELCOMING LINCOLN INTO HEAVEN, c. 1865 CARTE DE VISITE F163 #fotofolio #postcard #washington #lincoln #presidentsday #historicalphotos #1860s #1865 #americana #heaven #cartedevisite
#Railways often built their oddest machines for non revenue services - and some of the most curious have to be inspection #locos . Eagle, from the East Counties Railway 5ft Broad Gauge Network (roughly 2" wider than today's railways) was built by Headly Bros of Cambridge in 1849, delivered to Romford railway workshops as a standard #tankengine , and remained in use for some time, despite a woefully small boiler. This #antiquephotograph - most likely in the mid #1860s - shows her outfitted into an inspection rail carriage, which took place somewhat later. The result is a curious engine in which inspectors got a warm, furnished carriage with lighting while the engine crew got filthy, frozen and soaked only a few feet away. It seems to me it wouldn't be too much work to extend the compartment into a cab! In 1850 Eagle ran over the Norwich Superintendent, but appears to have continued her career into early GER useage. She'll have become quite an antique by the time of retirement. Her later career is a bit of a mystery. #steamloco #locomotive #history #heritage #GER #ECR #Stratford #Romford #CountiesRailway #Railwayhistory #Cambridge #trains #steamtrain #steampunk #curio

Here is my newest 1860’s corset, made this past October to wear under my Dickens Fair costume. Made of worsted wool and linen with a steel busk and synth. whalebone. I used the pattern I drafted back in 2016, but had to take it in a couple inches. It is also very comfortable for long days at the Fair. #corset #corsetmaking #corsetry #1860s #historicalfashion #historicaldress #sewing #handmade #seamstress #1860sfashion #civilwarfashion

Had a great time last night, so naturally I got like zero good pictures 😂 Though I did pop what I have up in my stories. . . We had yummy ribs, and there was fun dancing, and I got to see the Vegas group of reenactors that I haven’t had a chance to meet up with in ages. We always seem to be out of town when events happen.

”Well, of course Aunt March prefers Amy over me. Why shouldn't she? I'm ugly and awkward and I always say the wrong things. I fly around throwing away perfectly good marriage proposals. I love our home, but I'm just so fitful and I can't stand being here! I'm sorry, I'm sorry Marmee. There's just something really wrong with me. I want to change, but I - I can't. And I just know I'll never fit in anywhere." — Winona Ryder as Jo March in The Little Women (1994).

Another garment based off on an extant example. A quilted or puffer vest is super ubiquitous with being out doorsy. One of the amazing students at GTA spent days quilting the linen for the outside of the vest.

More magical candlelight. At first I thought this must be a market scene in winter, when the daylight was short, but the young woman's clothing isn't warm enough for November or December, nor would the produce that she has carefully arranged for display be in season then. So I'm guessing this must be very early in the morning or late in the evening - a long day for the young woman who carried her wares from home. Apparently this artist was so well known for his paintings lit by candles and lamps that he was nicknamed "Monsieur Chandelle." Seems appropriate.
