Edwardian Belts

March 2013

The belt on top was made a couple of years ago for my 1910 walking outfit. I found a suitable buckle on ebay and sewed it to a length of petersham. The two lower belts are Truly Victorian’s TVE55 Edwardian Dip-Waist Belts. They are hand-sewn per the pattern’s instructions. I used all stash fabrics: black silk taffeta, hair canvas interfacing and cotton broadcloth for the lining.
