On the 14th of december I went to a chrismas party in Stockholm.
The dresscode was – whatever you like from the 19th century.
And as you might know Iv’e been working on my 1840s dress to wear to the event. And it was acctualy done in time, even though I needed to both let it out some and shorten it a bit after wearing it outside for a photoshoot, (good thing I did the shoot before the party). I also had the underwear, bonnet and outerwear finished and waiting.
I’ve been so looking forward to this.
But before the party me and Johanna took a tour to the christmas market.
But there was not much to se and it was raining a bit to much so we decided to go early to the party instead.
The party started of with some smal talk while drinking “glögg” (hot wine(?)), and admiring all the lovely clothes.
Empire style meets late 19th century.
Some gentlemen in there finery.
Johanna in a lovely empire gown and hairdo.
The line to the coffee table ran long (especialy since many of us women where a bit wide on the backside).
We also got to listen to some lovely singing from Hilewi as “Lucia”.
The evening was very nice and the house really helped setting the “old times” mood.
And then the old fashioned “Julbock” came to give us gifts. Sadly I had to leave before, and didn’t get the chanse to meet him.
A glimps of me in my 1940s dress, which I really enjoyed wearing.
