And the clothes were developed on large scale.
The Victorian clothes were deeply influenced by the gothic style and hence the clothes of this period are popularly known as the gothic Victorian clothing.
It is one of the period in which clothing became quiet popular. As far as the period around the year 1837 is concerned, all the clothes were made in the mills which were situated in the Scotland, Ireland and of coarse England. However, the final shape to all the clothes were being given by the seamstresses, milliners, tailors, hatters, Glovers, corsetiers and many other specialized trades people. There were many families still who cannot afford the costly tailors. Hence they used to give the final shape to the clothes on their own.
If you will look at the start of the 20th century then you will find out that all the clothes were being made by the factory now. However the custom sewing as well as the traditional sewing techniques have not yet ended.
