Default Ladies Afternoon and Gala Dresses
Afternoon and Gala Dresses.


Bits of History

It was Queen Alexandra (1844-1925) Consort of King Edward VIIwho introduced the sugar almond and sweet pea colours of the early 1900s, a welcome change from the garish aniline dyed clothes of the 1890s. She was considered the great Royal fashion leader of her day

Between three p.m. and six p.m. husbands were expected to go out to tea whilst their wives played hostess to visitors both male and female. During this period there was a good chance of romance and sexual intrigue.
Attired in her tea-gown, a soft flowing robe of filmy chiffon or fine silk, trimmed with an abundance of lace and often free of corsetry, the hostess must have been a tempting prospect for many men.
Such loose gowns afforded women great comfort, ease of access and a tremendous sense of femininity.
Little wonder then that whilst hemlines rose and fell the tea-gown, which had appeared in England as early as 1875 lingered on until the 1920s

By 1909, the S-shape curve was followed by a straighter, more simpler line. An Empire revival during this period can be seen in the raised waistlines. Skirt lengths also began to rise and by the beginning of World War I, they were six to eight inches above the floor.

Paul Poiret trained at the House of Worth and Doucet and set up on his own in 1903. He made straight tube like sheath dresses in 1908.
The styles were known as Directoire as they were similar to fashions of the early 1800s.
Poiret was very sensitive to the mood of society and to trends among painters and designers. He was very influenced by Orientalism in Leon Bakst's Ballets Russes costume designs.

Default New Century - Childrens and Teens
Bits of History
For centuries people dressed little children, both boys and girls in the same styles of dresses,
often referred to as petticoats. No no special clothing existed for children, boys or girls.
Boys when they were "breeched", were simply dressed in smaller versions of the knee breeches
and other clothes worn by their fathers. Special clothes for children appeared in the late 18th
century with distinctive styles for boys and girls
Rompers appeared in the 1910s.
Boys began wearing shorts with knee socks rather than knee pants and long stockings.
The shorts worn in the 1910s, however, were quite long.
Fauntleroy suits were still commonly worn at ther beginning of the decade, but by the end
of the decade were not genereally worn, except in modified versions on special occasions.

Knickers became more common in the 1900s and by the 1910s most boys were wearing knickers.
Quite old boys wore knickers, some all the way through high school.
The sailor suit fashion continued popular in the 1910s. Styles at the beginning of the decade
were little changed than at the turn of the century, except that shorts and knickers largely
replaced knee pants

Styles for Edwardian girls at the start of the century look remarkably like those of 1800.
Self coloured embroidery on the main fabric was complimented by pastel toned and sugar almond
coloured sashes. Sashes of lemon, pale mauve, pink and aquamarine all created the look.
Short sleeves began to be seen on small girl's dresses.
Frills and deep embroidered hemlines, cape collars or yokes gave opportunity for decorated areas.
For outdoor wear girls often wore straw boater hats.
From 1910 older girls were wearing softer colours and only small girls wore whites or creams.
The younger children often wore styles following yoked smocks, but older girls wore their sashes
at waist level. By contrast after 1910 streamlined pleated navy gym tunics , drill dresses or
sailor looks became the fashion for schoolgirls of the day.
After 1910 colour was less restrictive and children wore a wide range of brighter colours which
were much daintier than the gaudy new aniline colours of the mid Victorian era.
Patterned and gingham check fabrics replaced wispy muslins. The yoke dropped to the waist and
by 1914 dropped even further to the thighs for a few years.

Bits of History

Changing attitudes about acceptable activities for women also made sportswear popular for women, with such notable examples as the bicycling dress and the tennis dress.

Unfussy, tailored clothes were worn for outdoor activities and traveling.
The shirtwaist, a costume with a bodice or waist tailored like a man's shirt with a high collar, was adopted for informal daywear and became the uniform of working women. Walking suits featured ankle-length skirts with matching jackets.

Motoring required voluminous coats or dusters to keep clothes clean and wearers warm in open automobiles. They were worn with fashionable hats wrapped in veils, gloves, and often goggles, 1907

first of all- stunning! thank you so much! i have long loved the edwardian ere, and while there's a fair amount of "Victorian" clothing out there, it is hard to find specifically "Edwardian" and pre-WI clothing. as a costume history fantatic i'd like to thank you very much for sharing such lovely and obviously time consuming work with world- plz keep it up! i know i continue to keep an eye out for you creations

only one little issue- what is the mesh for the salmon gala gown? it doesn't appear to be listed, or contain one in the download- and of course does not appear in my bodyshop program, or rather a default outfit appears in its place. might i know which mesh it is? i'd really appreciate it!

thanks again and do pleaze keep up all you wonderful creations! ^_^
