February Costumer's Outing


The first week of February was the historical costumer's mini market in Williamsburg. I bought some jewelry from Dames a la Mode and tried on four corsets. The following day was a large meetup of costumers at Colonial Williamsburg. I think there were over 20 and perhaps many more. Some of us separated for lunch early on and some of us broke off at the end for more photos.

I made a new jacket for the occasion. It's a silk faille from Silk Baron in a deep eggplant color. I paired it with my silk/linen yellow petticoat. The jacket pattern is by JP Ryan. I've used it three times now to great effect. I added box pleated trim out of matching fabric.



I purchased silk mitts from Williamsburg Rose and a new hat from Fashions Revisited, both on Etsy. Once the hat arrived I knew I wanted to add more red to my outfit, so I added the red silk ribbons to the jacket. They tie the jacket closed over a stomacher.


 Jewelry was made by me. Kerchief is silk, from Dharma Trading. The white cap is from Flying Heart Millinery, bought at the Jane Austen Festival last summer.
