Goin’ out Edwardian style

I had my first event in Edwardian Fashions.  I finished the Trumpet Skirt I was working on and paired it with my shirtwaist made from a table cloth and wore it to the Urban Gallery display at the Museum of Man and Nature.  Lottie was also in Edwardian fashions and Shirley came in modern clothes and played “photographer”.  Here are some of the highlights…


You can almost see the authentic Edwardian belt buckle in this photo.  You can’t see the pin stripes in the skirt at all!


In a lot of my photos, my shirtwaist was riding up under my left arm and my hat had slipped WAAAAY back.  Sigh.  And I looked in the mirror before we started!


The dummy behind the counter had a similar shirtwaist on as the dummy in front of the counter!


Lookin’ for the laudanum and found the laxatives instead.


Lottie’s hat is the best! She took apart 3 hats to make this baby!


Time to play the harlot!

Then it was time to go home and play with the photographs.

    Marvellous, wow what fun to play dress up and have a gorgeous venue to go to! You look great and your outfit turned out splendid. Love the hats good job Lottie. Hats intimidate me to make and what the heck how to wear them. Such fun you have to wear your makes to such a splendid place. Thanks for sharing.

    • You are very welcome! Hats can be a challenge. My biggest challenge is I have a huge head with tons of hair on it so most hats and hat patterns don’t really fit (hence my problems with my hat not being in a good place for most of the photos!)
