Claire's Historical Fashion MASTER POST! by shoomlah Claire's Historical Fashion MASTER POST! by shoomlah
I've just made a huge, nine-page post about my historical fashion reference & resources OVER ON TUMBLR! Normally I'd post this as a journal, but it seemed important enough that I wanted to get everyone's attention. :)

Peruse, enjoy, and GO MAKE ART!

I have been researching early medieval Gaelic clothing, and I found a great resource that you may want to consider adding to your list under the "Medieval" section: coblaith.net/EarlyGaelicDress/…

Thanks for putting together this great list of resources! :)

Hummel? Are you of Dutch descent?

Hummel is also the German word for Bumblebee! :)

The family name Hummel is either from the north of The Netherlands (where I'm from, hence my question) or the French province of Alsace (that part of France was German territory for a while).

'Hummel' is a Dutch word for a young child, it's similar to toddler. A Dutch bumblebee is called 'hommel', by the way.

Oh man, this is so helpful! Thank you! I've been doing a ton of research myself on historical fashion to try and figure out how to design...well, everything...for four different cultures for an upcoming comics project of mine, and this reference guide is going to be invaluable!

I just glanced through the link (and am totally going to follow you on Pinterest) - bravo for doing all that hard work putting it together. If I had the talent and patience to draw like I wish I could, I would use it all the time.

I can't find my syllabus at the moment, but last semester I took History of Costume (which all merchandise and apparel product development majors at my school at have to take) and we read this book.  ISBN: 9781563678066 Title: Survey of Historic Costume (this book is western costume, though).
If you're interested, I can note you with a list of more books and reference that you can add :D

Gosh I always wanted a resource like this! I'd search for something real specific like late 19th century men's clothing in Russia, middle to lower class, but alas Google only shows me American or English clothing. Nothing Russian. Thank you so much!

Also, I used to work at one of the museums you listed. Guess it's time to pay them a visit! :)

This is great, thanks for sharing!
I don't see my personal go-to for original Victorian and Edwardian patterns, along with TV: www.agelesspatterns.com/ It's a bit different from most companies, and basically what you would have got "back then": single sized (for the most part), very minimal instructions. But tons of great styles and absolutely authentic.

:iconshoomlah:
shoomlah Featured By Owner Feb 10, 2014  Professional Digital Artist
Oh I did forget about Ageless- they're awesome in theory, but MAN every pattern I've made through them has been enough of a clusterfuck that I end up remaking it from the ground up. :/  Making that stuff for modern bodies is a kind of HELL.

What I do like about them is their variety- like SO MANY cuts of skirts, cloaks, everything.  It's extensive.

ProfessorBats Featured By Owner Feb 10, 2014
Oh really? That's too bad.  Well, I guess I'm odd in that way. I'm naturally more of an hourglass (about 38-25-37 uncorseted, 22-23in waist w/ corset) so modern patterns are hopeless for me, these original sizes actually need much less redrafting for me. Maybe that's part of why I'm so drawn to making Victorian clothes!
By the way, I've about collected the supplies to re-create your Loup Garou outfit... it *will* happen, some time soonish!
