Trimming the Edwardian Blouse with Guipure Lace

by 23 Jun 2020Edwardian Inspired Blouse, Journal0 comments


Welcome to another update of my Edwardian inspired blouse project. I hope you’re enjoying my posts and seeing this blouse come to life!

I have made some solid progress over the past few weeks with finishing the tambour embroidery and attaching the yoke to the pin-stitched front midriff. I have also decided to add some Guipure lace trim to the front to give the blouse a proper Edwardian inspired look! When this blouse is finished perhaps it will give the appearance of an authentic Edwardian piece of clothing rather an an inspired production. One can only hope.

What do you think of my progress so far? Do you like the effect of the Guipure lace trim across the front and the contrast of the tambour embroidery against the insertion lace? Do you think it resembles fashion of the Edwardian era? 

I’d love to hear your thoughts. Please leave a comment below the gallery.

What’s Next?

The next step will be to prepare the back and collar and test the fit of the completed bodice on the mannequin. Once I’m happy with the result I’ll be making a start on the sleeves. I’m excited, are you?
