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:
Ladies inside warming themselfe before the dancing.
Outside, listening to speeches after the dancing. (sorry for the poor quality photos – It was quite dark by this time.)
Anna, looking lovely in the dress she made herself for a prevous event.
Me and Solveig. I made both our dresses this past year, from the same pattern (Reconstructing History nr 838).
I found it exiting to notice the differences between the dresses and the way they look being worn in two different ways.
