[personal profile] lost_spook : What's your favourite historical outfit you've made? (Please provide pictures if possible!)

My favourite outfit is a 1790’s ensemble. Short blue velvet jacket, blue grey skirt in silk taffeta and a sash in two-toned silk taffeta (pink and yellow). To this I wear a large hat and long tan gloves. I have yet to work up the confidence to show my face here, but I can show you the inspiration; At the Entrance by Louis-Léopold Boilly (1796-98).

I switched colour on jacket and sash as I already had blue velvet in my stash. And I already has taffeta for the skirt in almost the exact same colour as the painting. Sewing projects can be very time consuming, but this one just flowed and I was finished over a weekend. I always feel very pretty when I wear it.



Here’s the original meme. Feel free to ask my something if you want to.

Give me a topic to talk about and I promise to try and post about it sometime in the near future.
