Introducing: Cordelia Thimble


Hello, period clothing enthusiasts! It's Charming Cordelia Thimble and I'm so delighted to be part of Threadbare.

Right now I'm working on an early 1860s wrapper, a garment similar to a housedress or robe that women wore as they were getting ready in the morning or during pregnancy. The wrapper is cut loosely with ties to accommodate an expanding silhouette. More on the construction to follow in my next post.

I've chosen a burgundy paisley cotton chintz with blue and greenish gold. The wrapper will have a V-neckline and pagoda sleeves.

I'm so excited to share its progress with you! Photos to come soon.

Charming Cordelia
