Princess Elia, Princess Rhaenys, and baby Prince Aegon.
There's no way I would draw character's from pre-Robert's Rebellion and not draw these three. (And kitty Ballerion of course). Initially Elia's dress was really challenging, I wasn't sure how much Targaryen fashion would influence her wardrobe. Since this is the Mad King we're talking about, I ended up mostly skewing Targaryen with the dorne sari/sash, neckline, jewelry and orange-reds instead of purple-reds.
Rhaenys is dressed in fairly classic Targaryen fashions but with mostly gold accents and some Dornish jewelry. (She's also accompanied by Ballerion the Cat). And baby Aegon is chillin in some Targaryen red-purple.

Project: handkerchief top
I bought a parcel of random vintage textile scraps a while ago, which included a pile of cotton handkerchiefs. This reminded me of this wonderful handkerchief to top refashion by Sew Historically.
While I love Edwardian fashion, I decided to go for a more modern spin on Sew Historically's top and turned my handkerchiefs into a tank top with insertion lace.
Tumblr media
(Image source) [ID: photo of a person modelling a white camisole top made out of handkerchiefs, followed by an outline of how to cut and sew handkerchiefs and lace into said camisole. Text: "Handkerchief To Top. Edwardian Handkerchief Camisole. www.sewhistorically.com".]
The project:
I have four white cotton handkerchiefs, but decided to use only three of them because one of them has a beautiful hand-embroidered monogram that I want to keep for study purposes rather than crafts. The other ones are blank.
Tumblr media
[ID: three white cotton handkerchiefs. Two have been folded into triangles and are lying next to each other. A third one lies unfolded on top of the other two. The handkerchiefs have decorative white stripes crossing each other woven into the fabric at the edges.]
I started out by folding my handkerchiefs into triangles and playing around with shapes. I originally planned on making a matching yoke, hence the paper pattern on the photo below, but decided against it and went for straps instead.
I ended up with a somewhat similar layout as Sew Historically's top: I folded my rectangular handkerchiefs in half on the bias. Once laid out together, I got a rectangle that was sufficiently wide to cover my bust and has enough extra room to be slipped over my shoulders. I only needed two handkerchiefs for this, which meant I had a spare one for straps and extra details.
Tumblr media
[ID: three white cotton handkerchiefs folded along the bias to form one large triangle and two smaller triangles. Put together, they form a rectangle. A paper pattern for a yoke lies above the handkerchiefs.]
I ironed my handkerchiefs, drew my cutting lines on them with chalk, then cut them up.
This gave me two large triangles for the centre front and back and four smaller ones for the sides. I could've just used four large triangles instead of two large ones and four smaller ones, but I wanted to add insertion lace at the sides.
Tumblr media
[ID: two white handkerchiefs lying on an ironing board. Purple chalk lines have been drawn on both. The handkerchief on the left has one diagonal chalk line while the one on the right has two.]
I hemmed my raw edges and took a final picture of my pieces laid out flat so I had something to refer to in case I forgot what I was planning halfway the project. ADHD is fun.
Tumblr media
[ID: three white cotton fabric triangles laid out as to form a wide rectangle.]
I attached my lace to my triangles with tiny whipstitches. The lace I used for this is a cotton lace with a simple design and straight edges of which I had two reels in my stash.
Tumblr media
[ID: two pieces of white fabric lying next to each other. An end of white cotton lace is lying in between them.]
I sewed my lace and fabric together into a tube, then slightly gathered the fabric at the top and added a lace trim above the gathers. This concluded the basic construction of my tank top.
Tumblr media
[ID: a white fabric tube made out of triangular pieces of cotton attached to each other with white insertion lace. The tube is slightly gathered at the top.]
I then used my third handkerchief to make straps and trims, and finished the top and bottom of my tank top with said trims and extra lace.
Tumblr media
[ID: a white cotton tank top lying on a wooden floor. The top has white insertion lace and thin cotton straps.]
My new tank's all done! The top part is fitted to my bust thanks to the gathers while the bottom part is wide enough to slip over my shoulders without needing fasteners.
Tumblr media
[ID: a white tank top made out of cotton handkerchiefs and cotton insertion lace, handing from a wooden hanger in front of a white background.]
Turns out my new top matches my summer petticoat. This means I now have the perfect hot weather underwear combo to protect my clothes from sweat.
Tumblr media
[ID: a white tank top lying on a wooden floor, along with a white cotton petticoat with a button closure at the side and a long pointy lace trim at the bottom with flower embroidery.]
The light weight cotton of my handkerchiefs is the perfect material for underwear and summer clothes. Combined with the ventilation of the insertion lace, this resulted in a great hot weather tank top. I can wear it as both a top and an undergarment.
A project like this is a fun way to use up old handkerchiefs or small fabric scraps. I kept my tank's shape simple, but you could add some shaping to the top if you want so it sits closer to your collarbone without digging into your armpits.
Adding eyelet lace like Sew Historically's version is also a great way to add versatility to a top like this. By running a ribbon through the eyelets, a top like this could be tightened or loosened on the fly. This allows the fit to accommodate for weight fluctuations.

Been doing a lil work on my twitch stream slides - it’s not perfect, but neither am I.  Per request on insta I’m going to try to be better with uploading to youtube as well, and, pending potential technical ineptitude, I think I’ve gotten that figured out a bit more?
Nevertheless, see you tonight at 830pm e on twitch.

Sorry I've been on a hiatus for a while, a lot of my Pokémon stuff got copyright struck, so I've been in a bit of a slump. But I'm thinking of starting a new series inspired by wall paper from the Victorian and Edwardian eras. This pattern is available on socks, shirts, leggings, pin buttons, hardcover journals, and so much more. If you like the way it looks check it out, even if you don't want to buy it, leaving a like helps. Also if you want more designs like this, feel free to leave a comment suggesting what flowers or colors I should do next in a pattern.

It is done! I’ll take some better pictures soon but for now here she is on the dress form. I actually really love it. I still feel like I’m going to dislike most of the dresses I make, esp. if they are new or complex. 
I went with hooks and bars over a zipper so I could adjust it if I lose or gain weight but this means I can’t close it up myself. Not the worst since this is for special occasions only.
I’m glad I went with the dots under the bees, they add a little bit of depth between the bees and the satin without being distracting. I can also stuff this washer and hang dry it!

It’s been a long time coming but it feels so good to finally redesign these iconic villains! Maleficent was a little bit of a challenge… and yet very little changed. And I know, I know, I didn’t keep her horns…. But I was really struggling to draw the pointy medieval headdresses so I went with this one instead. There are historically inspired costumers that have come before me for Maleficent in a houppeland so the content is out there if you're interested!

I haven’t posted anything costume/cosplay related here in a while, so here’s the corset I spent all Spring Break 🥲 making for this Peach cosplay I want to put together + a comparison to the Daisy corset I made last year for a similar purpose
Bonus!! The design concept and the mock-ups that led up to the real corset

The historical knowledge I want to gain over night is alarming. It’s like I’m threatening my own existence and struggling to get to know every detail of the chronicles or events that took part years and years before I even saw the light of this universe. I need to know the truths, some of the darkest secrets. My friends, I feel alarmed by my own compulsive thoughts, sometimes.

made this corset top from the elizabethan corset generator i’ve linked above. definitely not historically accurate, but still fun!
i used a light suiting for the outside and satin to line it. the trim i used was on sale at a local fabric store
