Taking a step back from the Halloween posts for a day here. I recently came across the shop The Edwardian Girl
I did feature this dress on my Canadian Thanksgiving Post, and wanted to share with you more of this shop.
I love the Edwardian Time period and the novels of Jane Austin. These dresses made by Erin of The Edwardian Girl are beautifully made and look fantastic on the dolls.
How did you find out about American girl dolls?
"I first noticed American Girl dolls when I received one of their catalogs when I was about ten. I wanted one of the dolls but couldn't afford it. Though I couldn't afford the doll I looked into making soft bodied doll clothes out of left over fabric and remnants that I had.
About a year ago I saw some patterns for doll clothes and wanted to get started again. I saved up and bought the Rebecca American girl doll. So far she's the only one I have but I've got my eyes on a few others."
What time period in history do you enjoy the most?
"I enjoy the Regency, Victorian, and Edwardian eras and have been working on making clothes from that time period"
What is next for The Edwardian Girl?
"I want to expand a bit into 1940's fashion and maybe a nurse doll."
Erin also takes custom orders contact her for more information.
Thank you so much to Erin for sharing with us today her shop and insight into her sewing and historical passion! I hope you will take a look at her Etsy shop and the other wonderful outfits she has for sale there.
