A month ago I got asked to be part of the dancing entertainment on a event the local historic museum were arranging.
So this weekend (29 sep) I got my regency clothing together and hurried to get to the “on spot” rehersal.
I curled my hair and tied a shawl as a turban, then I attached a brosch and some feathers to get the right regency look.
I hurried to lace my brand new corset, put on the petticoat, stockings and mylovely “Kensingtons” shoes from American Duchess.
Unfortanley I didn’t have the time to find some ribbons to replace the shoe buckles with. Although 20 years wrong in the time period they do look beautiful.
The dress I wore was the HSF Striped regency gown, matched with mittens, fichu and an shawl.
The dinner went well, and the dancing even better, with lots of on-lookers and applaudes.
And now for some pictures:
