08:02 pm - Traveling in Victorian Glory
Ahh! So, first of all, hi to everyone! This is my first post to this community(:

Second, I'm going to be traveling by train to Virginia (from California) over the holidays, and was planning on not only dressing up all (or almost all) during the trip, but traveling in a Victorian traveling outfit. The only thing is.. I can't find much information on them!

I know there WAS such a thing, for sure, but what did they look like? I've only found one fashion plate - of a traveling paletot - so I don't know what the rest would look like.. I assumed the skirt would be very similar to a walking skirt..? I am open to all sorts of information for any Victorian time - starting at early bustle onto Edwardian. Thank you for anything!


P.S. Any information about hats are very welcome, also! And clothing for cold weather... *shivers thinking about Virginia winters* :D

P.P.S. As a bonus, has anyone else traveled in historical clothing? I'd love to hear stories (and that I'm not the only one, heheh)!

P.P.P.S. Sorry if you've already read this in another community! I'm looking to gain as much insight from all sorts of people(:

My favourite site of all time has the following offerings that may help. She also covers accessories.

Walking or traveling gown - 1890
From 1895
Any of these - 1887
The brown or grey - 1887
The all blue one - 1883
1909 walking dresses
Travel coat [pattern on site] - 1901

Try looking at walking dresses as many of them could be suitable for your need.

Thanks for posting the 1909 one, as I have been looking for ideas for just that very thing.
