 Yesterday my friend Alfhild came by. She had visited another friend who wants to make both regency and Victorian clothes and was really inspired to  to make some too. So we dug out my books, and then I got inspired to show my stuff and ended up openignboxes with costumes which hadn't been touched for years. They are kept under our bed, and unfortunately our cat Mysko had managed to get into one of them and had puked on my 18th century shift, and an antique lace shawl. The shawl was too delicate to wash, so I just gave up and threw it in the trash. The shift will be washed next time we have the laundry room, next week, and hopefully it can be saved. But Mysko was very cheap for anyone wanting to buy him then ;)

Anyway, I dug out clothes and I tried on clothes, and to my great joy my empire corset still works, though it has to be laced wholly shut at the back. The same was the case with my smallers 18th cnetury corset, though it should ideally be taken in at the waist - it's too tight at the top if I lace it shut, and too loose in the waist. I'll see if I'll do somethign about that, I have a partly finished robe à la francaise that I started 14 years ago, which would be fun to finish I guess.



My gown to go with the regency corset will probably be too big, I didn't take the time to try it on.

Isn't it great to get back in to smaller clothes??

I wish I had that particular problem. I'm slowly running out of clothes because they're getting tighter. :(
