The Peasants Are Revolting

Or, Never Say Never In Costuming;

Also...it appears that I am a fan of blue and orange, which didn't occur to me til I realized which post was immediately below this one. Heh.

Yes, they are appropriate in certain contexts, yes, they are practical, yes, they are fugly. And yet...I have made a bedgown. Don't ask about the (somewhat suspect) motivation; suffice it to say the Usual Suspects and I got a bee in our bonnets to be the Bedgown Brigade at some point this fall. Washington's Crossing 18thc market fair seemed an appropriate deployment, so towards the end of summer plans were made and sewing was done...
