The point wasn't to make anything new, but I did anyway - primarily because I wanted to get a nice display of the samples of painted petticoats I've been working on for the past few weeks. (The petticoats will get their own post in the next couple days, fear not.) And I really wanted a jacket to wear with a painted petti rather than a gown; what's the point if you can't see the whole petticoat, right??
|No, I shan't stop showing off my pink American Duchesses, thanks very much. I luuuuurves them!|
I was mainly inspired by the very-famous jacket in the KCI's collection, although I looked through a whole mess of late 18thc jackets on pinterest too!
|Cars in the background, whoopsie.|
|Box pleats for everyone! EVERYONE.|
|Yes, it was warm enough to not need gloves. But accessories are the key to good costumes!|
|Let's end with showing off my shoes again, 'kay? I can do that!|
