wxndering-child asked: Hi! I was wondering: what did maternity gowns look like in the victorian era?

operafantomet:

Early in the pregnancy there would be no difference in garment. Later in the pregnancy the dresses could remind a lot of the so-called “tea gowns” or wrapping gowns. The overall silhouette would be similar to regular dresses, but with a higher waistline. 

There also existed some corsets that had a lot more space over the belly, and with various ways of supporting the back. Have a look at these links for a lot of interesting photos!

Surprisingly, perfectionists are often procrastinators, as they can tend to think “I don’t have the right skills or resources to do this perfectly now, so I won’t do it at all.”
