A Couture Courtesan there as well, to chat about the historical "Hamilton" dress she'd made. (She's an incredibly talented seamstress with impeccable taste, and I'm still impressed that she'll acknowledge she knows the likes of Yours Truly! Have I also mentioned she's a lovely person?) It was on a somewhat random Tuesday evening, but the Usual Suspects and I were all able to make it.
(This has been your Petticoat PSA for the season; thank you for your attention and please petticoat wisely.)
A few more pictures for your consumption...
|Very nice faux horses!|
I'd like to make a new day dress and bonnet if I have time, but I'm focusing first on Mr. Dedicated Follower of Fashion, who I've been with long enough now that I feel secure investing time and money into an outfit for! Two outfits, actually, as it's a day and evening event. (Or one outfit, when I run out of time for two.) I bought the patterns for everything from Black Snail Patterns, as I like the look of them, and that they give you the historical methods and you can adapt to modern methods if you want. As with my own costumes, I like to know what's correct first, even if I decide I want to deviate later.
Also...boy clothes are weird. Trousers, man. It's a brave new world!
