One last for #TissotWeekend, and for #BlueMonday as well....Twin sisters, dressed alike, compete for the attention of a young gentleman. Hilarity ensues, or at least it did for the Victorians who liked this kind of genteel genre scene that Tissot painted after his move to London. "In the Conservatory/The Rivals" by James Tissot, c1875, private collection. #jamestissot #tissot #expatartist #englishart #victorianart #1870s #ladiesinblue #sisters #bustle #rivals #intheconservatory #portraitofalady #fashionhistory #victorianfashion #costumehistory#arthistory #historyofart #heartart#artlovers

John's Alley Bar open for business. Partying is clearly a classic New York pastime! #newyork #1870s #instagramnyc #ig_nycity #history

My bustle with petticoats over it and my 1870s bodice mockup. I think I'll shorten the train. I want a little one and I'm limited on fabric anyway. As for the mockup I need to make the back smaller at the waist (and maybe the side seams?) and the neckline in front is too wide but I don't think taking it in at the shoulders will quite do it. If anyone has any advice I'd appreciate it! #costumecollege2017 #1870s #earlybustle #historicalcostuming

For the historical fashion version of the "Favorite Color" challenge for #thevintagefashionchallenge I'm sharing my favorite historical gown I've ever made. This green and peach bustle dress was a bear to match the plaid, by it felt so elegant and fun to wear. Patterns by Truly Victorian.

#CTcreativespaces day 21: Color. Another one of my obsessions is making reproduction hats and bonnets. I just adore the vibrant purple hues on this little bonnet! #millinery #bonnet #creativespace #historicalreproduction #1870 #1880 #1870s #historicalhats

Exploring abandoned Victorian mansions!My dress features detail from 'Ossian Receiving the Ghosts of the fallen French Heroes' by Anne-Louis Girodet. It was a piece praised by Napoleon. #ossianreceivingtheghostsoffallenfrenchheroes #annelouisgirodet #1801 #art #painting #classicalart #annelouisgirodetderoussytrioson #napoleon #napoleonbonaparte #victorianmansion #urbex #urbanexploration #urabnexplorer #1875 #1870s #victorian #victorianarchitecture

For #TissotWeekend - So many luscious prints and textiles all piled together here, and yet it all works so beautifully. This was probably in Tissot's studio in his London house, overlooking the garden, and a charming place it must have been, too. "The Japanese Scroll" by James Tissot, c1874, private collection. #jamestissot #tissot #expatartist #englishart #victorianart #1870s #japanoise #japaneseinfluence #textiles #portrait #portraitofalady #fashionhistory #victorianfashion #costumehistory #arthistory #historyofart #heartart #artlovers

#vintagesummerday20 is primary colors so I thought I'd share a dress design I hope to make. It will be dark gray with lots on contrasting red. I don't know if I'll ever get to it even though I already bought all the silk. My potential business direction has shifted from making clothes, to just creating the patterns from extant clothes (which I'm SO happy and excited about!). This was to be my crown jewel costume but I think my focus needs to be on pursuing pattern making for now

Another for #TissotWeekend - Do you recognize this white ruffled dress from yesterday's painting ("July: Specimen of a Portrait") of Kathleen Newton in the house by the sea? Here are both Kathleen (with a veil tied around her face) and the dress again, only this time the dress's ribbons and bows instead are blue instead of yellow. #Detail, "Fete Day at Brighton" by James Tissot, 1878, private collection. #jamestissot #tissot #expatartist #englishart #victorianart #1870s #feteday #flags #brighton #whitedress #summer #summerart #portrait #whiteruffles #bluebows #portraitofawomaninwhite #womaninwhite #nostalgia #fashionhistory#victorianfashion #costumehistory#arthistory #historyofart#heartart#artlovers

Three #diaries from the #1870s belonging to a #CivilWar veteran from #Bethlehem, #Connecticut. He seemed to enjoy writing, especially his name which he wrote numerous times throughout each book. One page is just his name written repeatedly. I wonder if he may have learned to read and write as an adult. #vintage #antique
