We need Edwardian and Victorian Clothing

Post by Koshari Mahana » Sun Aug 12, 2018 4:26 am

I hope that these will become available soon. I'm close to opening Coopersville, it's an Edwardian community and there are only a few items on the market that are in theme. I've managed to find some freebies but they are more Steampunk or Victorian, not specifically Edwardian.

This is the style: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1900s_in_Western_fashion

Clothing Creators... please, please? :) I would be so very appreciative and I'm certain you will sell a lot.

Oh Thank you Chris! That would be wonderful, and the hair too. I haven't found any Gibson Girl hair styles on the market yet either.

Pinterest is a great source for historical clothing/hairstyles and usually has very clear pics.

Here is the link to a search for Edwardian era clothing:
bit.ly/EdwardianClothing

Here is a link for a search on Edwardian Era hairstyles:
bit.ly/EdwardianHairstyles

Here is a link for a search for "Gibson Girls'
bit.ly/GibsonGirls

Also, I actually watched the entire series of Downton Abbey because it's set in the Edwardian Era for the most part, it's a great reference for all styles of this period.

On a side note, the Suffragette movement reached its pinnacle during the Edwardian era, women were much bolder, they were more sporty, they drove cars etc... much more free and liberated than Victorian women.

For Edwardian women bustles and corsets were definitely "out" and straighter skirts, even suit jackets, vests and ties for women (for day clothes) were popular, oh and HUGE hats and hair lol.

Another difference that's very general is that the Victorian era had more dark colors and was fairly conservative, the Edwardian Era was lighter all around, pastel colors and more progressive with its eye on the future, it was the onset of a new exciting century and all of the amazing inventions were becoming mainstream and were giving people more leisure time (it's why it was called "the Edwardian Summer"). The Titanic was during the Edwardian Era so if you've looked at the clothing and hair in that movie that might be helpful.

Thank you so much, I REALLY appreciate that you are considering an Edwardian or Victorian line of clothing and hair!

P.S. The Edwardian Era started with high waistlines like the Victorians losing the bustles and ended with almost no waistlines like flappers but before the skirts got short.

Here'are examples with the dates:

Image 1878 (big bustle)

Image 1898 (bustle nearly gone)

Image 1905-06

Image 1908 (bustle completely gone)

Image 1913

Image 1915 (ankles just beginning to show)

Image 1919 (ankles completely exposed)

Between 1900-1908 there wasn't to much of a change. They still had a tiny bussel, a bit of a train and the pigeon blouse. From 1908 - 1910 is when they had the straight flapper type dress. In 1914 they started shortening the dress above the ankle. I have a picture that shows, but I don't know how to get the picture url.

Hi Zippidy, Great observation! The don't let you upload a photo to this forum, it has to already be online and you can copy the url, highlight it with your mouse then click the "link" icon above where you type. I would love to see the picture you have.

Zippity and all

There are several ways to share a photo quickly on line. My favorite application is called Gayazo, which lets you quickly highlight and snap a picture of anything on your screen and then post the URL instantly in example:

https://gyazo.com/27219ec018d5655f0e400e5199f0de4b

There are also many free photosharing sites available

https://www.lifewire.com/free-image-hos ... es-3486329

My personal preference is Gayazo because you simple move your mouse over the image left click and drag to highlight what you need and it instantly shows you the picture and a link to it. I often use this inworld and at work to highlight things on my screen. The professional version lets you save the images and do category sorts.

The link to the their site is:
