Making an 1895 Walking Skirt with Morris & Co Fabric


Dress historian Cathy Hay makes an 1895 walking skirt with Morris & Co fabric. The 'Marigold' pattern is here in all it's splendour in a bright, spring green.

Do not be alarmed by the term 'Victorian' as this video showcases two clear principles: "Have nothing in your [wardrobe] that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful" and a "joy in labour", for why else would you sew and embellish by hand?
