I’m in the usual sew-all-the-things for Jordan Con mode, which does not leave any time for posting-the-things. But somehow I’ve ended up in a state where I can’t actually progress on anything tonight, so a catchup post it is!
The Greater Bay Area Costumer’s Guild went to see the Casanova exhibit at the Legion of Honor in San Francisco. The theme was 18th century, so my choices were my saque, or my Eliza Schuyler italian gown. Since it’s a much easier to maneuver in, I went with Eliza Schuyler. My new addition was a bergere hat, which I trimmed with a bit of silk satin ribbon.
I wore my fichu on the outside of the dress, because I’m still super annoyed at how the shoulders always fall down. One day I need to suck it up, take the sleeves out, and reset the shoulder straps, but ugh that will be hours of boring work…
Here are some photos from the event:
While 18th century maternity corsets had side lacing, I just left the front lacing open a bit on my 19-week pregnant stomach:
And you can’t barely tell with my fichu ends covering the front!
