Curious Child - The Victorian Child


In the last month I've been working on a new children's line of clothing, Curious Child.  It is Victorian clothing for Victorian children.  Eventually I may expand that to other eras, but for this old year, and the soon to be New Year, I will concentrate on Victorian children.

The middle and upper class Victorian child often had a lovely childhood if they survived it.  Child mortality could be alarmingly high.  But for our purposes in Second Life, I'm focusing on the beloved and nearly mythical, middle or upper class Victorian child.  Occasionally I may have outfits for poorer children.  That's not to be snobbish, it is just a reality of what I work with.  Clothing for poor children never lasted past the ragbag.  The surviving Victorian period children's clothing is mostly middle and upper class clothing.  Sometimes one can find handmade garments from lower class homes, but that is a rarity.

Now, having said all of this, I'd like to present my first four children's outfits from Curious Child.  You will find them at the New Babbage store, which you can find in my picks.  In another day you'll be able to find them on Marketplace as well.  I hope you enjoy them, and I wish you and yours a lovely, Merry Christmas!

Cordially yours,
Kembri Tomsen

Baby, It's Cold Outside!

Greetings! I have several new releases, from the 1920s to Victorian beauties! So let's get right to it, because baby, it's cold outside and I need to slip into something hot!

Stunning blue sequins on a silvery silk. 

How can anyone not love this hot raspberry number?

And for a cool look, shimmering white!

Now for the Victorian beauties . . . Rowena, a stunning coppery silk with black beadwork.  I swear the train on this gown looks as if it's on fire!

And finally, Vivian.  A dark blue black silk gown with beadwork.  The parasol is pure whimsy on my part, I hope you enjoy it!

Those are the offerings for this week!  They will be up on Second Life Marketplace in a day or two.
I hope you find something special to warm your holidays!

Cordially yours,

Sweet Dreams!

Greetings! This week I am going to start off with a lovely Victorian nightgown, Sweet Dreams.

A cup of hot cocoa is included with the gown! It is available now in the New Releases vendor at most Curious Seamstress stores. More to come, and there are a couple of other new gowns out in the vendor, but you'll have to take a look to see what they are at this point!

Cordially yours,
