Victorian Maid


Every year I say I’m going to eat my way across Dickens Fair ’cause the food is so yummy and then every year I put on a corset. This year, Judy and I decided we were finally going to go the comfy route, and D already had a maid outfit from the year before so we had a whole group.

It was really hard to research what a victorian maid outfit looked like so we had to go off of photos of Edwardian era maids and extrapolate from there. I had a lot of fun making this and obsessing over details, even though it was a very simple costume.

I didn’t get any good photos but at least I was super comfy at Dickens this year!
