When we last blogged about fashion, we introduced you to a site which allowed you to download thousands of vintage sewing patterns online (see HERE).
That post was so successful that we though you might also be interested in trying your hand at historical dresses!? Fortunately a lot of the grunt work has already been done for you, as Cosplayer Artemisia Moltabocca created a fantastic set of free resources for sewing your own costume, from an Italian Renaissance ball gown to petticoats from the 1950s.
Need something for Halloween? Not that one needs the excuse of a holiday to suit up in a fluffy 50’s crinoline, a Tudor-style kirtle gown, or a 16th-century Flemish outfit with all the trimmings…
Click through the many links on her site and you may find yourself tumbling down a rabbit hole of some other cos-player’s generosity.
That link to the custom corset pattern generator may set you on the road to creating a perfectly fitted Viking apron or a good-for-beginners tunic. (“Bring out yer dead!”)
Fancy even more choices? Moltabocca’s Free Historical Costume Patterns Pinterest board is a veritable trove of dress-up fun.
There are step-by-step tutorials for almost anything. Check them all out below!
