As I said before, Calum is coming to the Bath Minuet Company ball with us
in a couple of weeks. He will be wearing his Regency kit again, but I didn't want to wear Regency to the only Georgian ball we go to, but I do want to match him (obviously! We needs good photos!!!) so I thought the obvious thing would be to make 1790s stuff :)
I have in the stash a short length of silver metal and white, narrow striped, silk to make an over robe; and found a lovely cotton muslin with a narrow silver metal stripe in Leicester to make a round gown. I've been working on the round gown and finally have something that's starting to look like a dress!
Here, have some hideous fitting photos too ;)
I have a feeling I'm going to be skirting the fine line between fuggly and awesome ;) no one ever said the high waisted, full skirted, fluffy look was flattering though did they?! And maybe the over robe will calm it down a bit...
