I haven't made anything from this period since 2006! (the outfit in question) Then I was inspired by the then very lively costuming community on Livejournal, above all the work of [personal profile] koshka_the_cat

Now it's mainly my friend Alfhild getting all excited about it, and the fact that I can again wear my regency stays, that has got me going about it. And that you can get cheep thin cotton from India. As I wrote yesterday I have ordered plenty of that, though partly for modern sewing projects. And yesterday, after a tip from [personal profile] isabelladangelo went to this etsy shop and bought my self a sea green vintage sari in a silk/rayon mix, to make an evening gown. I have also taken up working on my collection of images and photos of colourful regency dresses. What I do need now is more info on what to wear when you're no longer 20, but close to 50 in the period. I'm thinking lace caps, but I want to know more about what was considered appropriate.
This doesn't mean that medieval and renaissance won't be my focus period, but I look forward to doing a new period. Alfhild is coming over this afternoon so that I can help her with her stays.I'm not very good at that, but I guess that it's better than trying to fit them yourself.
