It might be an odd-ish question, but...would it be ok, if I'd use the photograph from the backside of this dress in an illustration I'm working on? I'm primarily using photographs/scraps for the current (steampunk-ish) illustration I'm working on, and this might just as well be one of the costumes I'll assemble together for a crowd. Of course I will refer to you with a link whenever the work is done.

Also, if you agree on me using the image; if I might find any other (back)shots within your collection, do you prefer, that I ask usage of each image individually. Or are you ok with me asking it in general, like I am now?

Last but not least; while I'm not really the person to wear this, I must say... good work ^^

Well, firstly thank you for the compliments and sorry for not responding earlier!

I appreciate the fact that you ask me this instead of just using it! For this picture I'm fine with it. I would really love to have a link here (so I can find it) and a link there (so there is a reference). I'm ok with you asking me in general for the pictures of clothing only. For the photography with models I'd appreciate it if you'd ask, so I can inform the team (dunno whether someone would have a problem with it) :)

Hope this is clear and okay? ^^

No problem, if I tend to use it in the final piece, I'll give you the link and will refer to you on my own page. As for pictures of models, I'll keep that in mind, didn't consider even looking/using them. But if I would, I'll surely give notice.

Thanks a lot! ^^

hey! very nice wok! Can you tell me from where you get the fabric? Its realy beautiful!

Thank you!
The fabric I bought on a market in Utrecht, the Netherlands. It's a great market, every Saturday a whole street filled with fabric and trim. However, the fabric turned out to be way more delicate then I hoped. The next time I'll go for really good quality brocate!

what era is it fashioned from.. it looks late victorian maybe early edwardian mix. Its lovely. the simplicity in color mixed with the elegance of the lines make it eye catching. Even the deep cuffs on the sleeves gives it a strong appeal. Good looking piece. Congrates.

Thank you for your detailed comment and compliments :D
The jacket is derived from a 1877 pattern (natural form time), however, I shortened it and adjusted the collar. The skirt is a quite simple straight skirt in..10 pieces I believe. It's to give the whole silhouette indeed a more Edwardian look :)
