18th Century · Experimenting

One dress – many wearers

I really wanted to experiment with sewing garments that more than one person can use. I have a lot of costumes, I like to lend them out, but that’s easier if more people can use them than people who look exactly like me. This was the first result:


Hooks, eyes and lacing! The front is laced up the front, and has a modesty panel, so that it can be let out or in.



The waistband has one hook on the inside…


(… and a lot of loops to attach the hook to)


… and one on the outside! And again, a lot of loops for it.
