Victorian times

If you dress up your son to look like a victorian boy you also need toys for him to play with.

This is what we got him:

Victorian childeren had much less toys than modern childeren. Most examples of toys I could find are for girls. Like dolls and dolls houses, so the choice was very limited. I doubt the lead soldiers we bought are really victorian but they look the part for the untrained eye.

Meanwhile I am struggeling to make him an overcoat, the original victorian description is very minimalistic, and there are a lot of sewing techniques involved which I have never done before. Like sewing pockets in, so I really could use a good description. I'll get it done but it will take more time than usual.
