It has been too long since we have had a Victorian gown from Ivalde but, Neferia Abel made the wait worthwhile with her latest release, the Amaude Gown. The incredible detail on the pin-tucked bodice, and the trim elements reflect Nef’s commitment to both historic accuracy for her period inspired designs and the highest quality finished products. These commitments are also a hallmark of Reghan Straaf’s consistently fine designs from Hatpins, exemplified here in one of my personal favorites – her Lady Annette hat.
Those of us who love the Victorian fashions are going to miss Cornelia Rothschild’s lovely coiffures with Historical Heroines closing Thursday. I think her Miss Banks hair is just right with this ensemble. ~ kym
