Modern “Edwardian” Fashion

Every time I’m in a store I always look for possible costume pieces. The last ccouple of months I bought a pair of great regency-looking boots on sale, some nice shawls, and the perfect pair of pants to my planed steampunk outfit.

So the other day I was killing some time down at the shopping center, looking throuhg some of the biger clothing stores.

I had no intension to buy anything (and didn’t in the end), but I got a pretty hard time holding on to my wallet once I spotted some lovely blouses with a un-mistakenly Edwardian flair.

I spotted this one the moment I stepped in to the store.2014-03-14 16.20.58An ivory coloured cotton chiffong blouse with a lovely decoration and a resonably tight neck.

The blouse closes at the back with 4 buttons.2014-03-14 16.21.58

This second one was hanging in the same section as the first one.2014-03-14 16.23.17A lovely lace decorated  blouse with a smal collar and front button clouser.

And finaly I found this short jacket on sale.2014-03-14 16.26.20The style would look awsome paried with a nice blouse, skirt and a big hat.

I love that even if you don’t know how to sew, you can still get a petty nice historical outfit straight from the fashion stores.

  1. Love that second blouse, especially! I’m a beginner at sewing and follow your blog and other wistfully as a “wow, maybe someday” thing, but you’re absolutely right — I’ve pulled together various steampunk and Edwardian outfits from modern clothes I find it stores.
