My dear, you are a confection of delight, a scrumptious macaron. Am I in love or am I suddenly ravenous for French pastries?

I don’t have time to make a proper post as I am in the middle of packing for a quick jaunt Stateside but I thought I would leave you with a  tantalizing glimpse of the gown I made for the Dress like a Georgian Day picnic in St. James’ Park.

May I present the four steps to creating a costume.

1) A bit of inspiration:

2) Creating a colour palette:

3) A bit of shopping:

4)  Time to picnic and promenade!:

    I love your costume! You always make the most beautiful things!
    Did you find it very hot to wear?

    Delightful! I look forward to more in-depth information, and I haven’t forgotten the chemise a la Reine, either! But have a good trip home first, you have earned it my dear! Affectionate regards, Kathie

    Hi, I’m trying to find out more about the Elizabethan jacket you posted on tumbler. Could you tell me where you found the image? Thank you

    • Hello Emma,
      If you click through you will find the source. I have an ask feature on my tumblr: http://ornamentedbeing.tumblr.com/ask If you are unable to find the source please write me on that blog and I will be able to help from there.

        Thank you, unfortunately I am not a member of tumblr so this was not an option. Clicking doesn’t work either. However, in the intervening time I had found the jacket on the museum’s website (I couldn’t find the original image but it was the provenance and dating that I was most interested in so that suited my purpose.)
        Thanks anyway, Emma.
