At first, when re-creating these 1910s clothing, it was very important to me to look just right, and I made myself a 1910s corset (two actually, one from a Truly Victorian pattern & one from Scroop patterns).

I guess the purpose of this post is just to say that while it is fun and exciting to do things properly & accurately, it's also nice to be able to use historical clothing everyday and to be able to enjoy it in a casual way, not just when dressing-up. There is no right way to do vintage/ historical clothing, and I'm glad I've found an enjoyable way to wear my 1910s clothing.
