Edwardian Fashions (Belle Epoque)

Edwardian Fashions (Belle Epoque)

The Edwardian, or Belle Epoque period is a very exciting fashion period to recreate for our dolls! Breaking away a bit from the almost architectural structure of the Victorian era, this was a time of a fine, soft details, and a more relaxed sense of elegance. Towards the end of this time frame, the cut of women's clothing changed radically, and the bodices and skirts are not so different from much of what we might wear today. Advances in the textile industry combined with a high value placed upon embroidery and lace work, helped create some extraordinarily beautiful clothing, noted both for its workmanship and exquisite materials.

Designed for the 12" French Fashion doll, these styles date from 1900 to 1914.

All my patterns are authentically designed and tested. They contain excellent instructions so you can make the clothing yourself. A full color cover with several views of the style, clearly typed instructions, and carefully drawn patterns. A complete list of materials needed is provided, along with suggestions for appropriate fabrics and trims. The pattern is contained in a clear plastic sleeve which you can insert into your binder for ease of use and safekeeping.

Also, if you love to look at antique fashions of this era as I do, please take a look at my Pinterest board devoted to these fashions!! http://pinterest.com/dedenoellkern/belle-epoque-edwardian-clothing/

Afternoon Dress Circa 1905, plus Velvet chapeau 
DESCRIPTION: Olivia is all ready for an afternoon of shopping, or visiting friends. After she gets home and removes her lovely velvet hat, she will be "at home" to receive her friends' visits or perhaps she will settle down by a bright window and work on her embroidery project.

Her ensemble is made from a fine wool crepe, trimmed with narrow black braid and running stitch embroidery on the skirt. Her top has an inset of tucked silk dupioni, and jabot and cuffs to match with a fringed edge highlighted by black top stitching. Her collar is attached at the back of the neck, and at the waistline. The skirt and blouse are separate pieces, and join with hooks on the waistbands, with a silk ribbon belt to cover the overlap. This costume is unlined which is not the common way to construct an outfit of this type, but as the doll is so small, this preserves a graceful look. Skirt closure is in the back with an applied placket, and down the center front of the blouse with hooks and worked loops, and tiny buttons for decoration all down the front placket. The ruffled jabot is constructed then stitched in place at the neck.

The silhouette is the charming "pigeon breast" with elevated line at the upper skirt back, and the full drooping bodice in the front. Her sleeves are full at the wrist cuff as well, and softly gathered into the armhole. The five gore skirt has an attached flounce with both inverted and knife edge pleats. It has a lovely flair and sweep.

Her hat is made from wired buckram, covered in fine black velvet. The left side curves up, and the head size is oval. The trimming is of various silk ribbons formed into a variety of bows and rosettes, plus two red holly berries for an accent, and a curling ostrich plume.

Darling Day Dress 1907 
  • This lovely pattern set is circa 1907... when the skirts were still fairly soft and full, and the blouses often had gathered puff sleeves and soft fullness on the bodice. This lovely day dress is a style which a lady might put on in the morning and wear throughout the day. Some women did change their clothing several times a day, but many did not, and this ensemble would have been worn with contentment about the house, or perhaps by donning a hat, to a store on a quick errand.

    DESCRIPTION OF THE PATTERN: The four gored skirt has soft hand stitched shirring at the waist to control the fullness. Her blouse has an inner bodice of white cotton, with a gathered tucker, and the over bodice of patterned cotton is slightly gathered for style and ease, and then confined at the waist, with a silk ribbon belt. The waistband of the bodice attaches with hooks to the skirt’s waistband. Her perky hair bow is made from starched cotton with hand rolled edges, and is trimmed with Valenciennes lace. I made the skirt as shown in lightweight cotton sateen, the inner bodice of white cotton voile, and the polka dot bodice of vintage sheer cotton lawn

    Recommended Fabrics:

    Skirt: lightweight or sheer cottons or silks.

    Blouse: Inner bodice: thin cottons such as voile or lawn. Habotai silk.

    Bodice: thin, slightly sheer cottons such as lawn, batiste or voile. Lightweight, soft silks.

    Cottons may be starched to make them easier to handle.

    The front cover of the pattern shows several views in color. There are very clear directions and neatly drawn patterns to help you every step of the way!

    • This clothing was made to fit the Gildebrief French Fashion doll body (which makes up into a doll about 12" tall with the head) but should fit other similar size French Fashions as well, wth possibly minor adjustments.

    My doll is Olivia, an exquisite Simon and Halbig 1159 made for me by Barbi Kantor-Goldenberg. The 1159 was originally made for the French market (as well as for the German market) and has been found on antique French lady bodies. Hence my consideration that she can be regarded as a later French fashion doll.

    You are buying the pattern only...the doll and other accessories shown are not included.

    My pattern for Underclothing Circa 1900 properly supports this style.
