First off, I would like to thank our wonderful hostesses, because I had an amazing time.  The new venue is wonderful.  Our room was so adorable, full of antique furniture and had a fireplace. It was perfect for getting in the 18th century mood while getting ready and unwinding with tea afterwards. photo (14)     photo (13)
 The dinner was amazing, and the new room was defiantly an improvement.  We laughed  enjoyed some very happy punch and had a great time.  I had brought my camera, but forgot to charge the battery.  So crappy iphone pics had to do. They didn't turn out so great.
The bad news is that my wardrobe malfunctioned.  This is the first time I wore my stays for a period of time, and the tabs are too long and its too big.  It wasn't noticeable standing in front of a mirror, but sitting all night, the were very uncomfortable.  That, and my dress grew two inches some how.  I swear it fit right at home, but all night it shifted and wrinkled.  I have to work on that before the next wear.

Friday night was the masked ball at the Roman Baths. I wore the gold sequence dress I made for Dress U along with my cameo tiara and Pier 1 mask.

Thank you all for your kind words on my last post, I'll try to keep posting about it. I took a short break to get ready for fort fred, Its supposed to be seasonably cold, so I've been trying to figure out what to wear to keep warm without bundling up too much.  Then I vaguely remembered reading somewhere ( probably online) about flannel shifts.  At the time, I thought "wool shift?  how horrible, this has got to be b.s." But a cotton flannel shift was sounding pretty appealing with the cold damp weekend ahead. So I through one together.  Its pretty bad, I didn't even hem it, but nobody will see it, and its warm and soft, so what does it matter.

Last weekend was the first annual francaise dinner party. [livejournal.com profile] padawansguide came up early Saturday, and we got ready to go down. She was even kind enough to lend me some things, including a gorgeous emerald necklace to go with my new gown. After meeting everyone and taking a walk around the building trying to find the right door, we were escorted to our own private dining room in the 300 year old inn. Dinner was amazing and I stuffed myself as much as I could in my stays. We all got custom made lip balms as favors, had acton of laughs, and the was even a champaign toast to my recent engagement! I took lots of pictures, but most turned out blurry or too dark, so I'll just post some of the good ones,

Some of us had talked about going to Pottsgrove manor this Sunday, as a second chance to wear our 18th century winter clothing. Everyone is welcome to come, I was thinking around 5 or 530.  Its only a few miles from my home if anyone wants to come early and change.  I even bought new mitts for the occasion :)

Sorry for the re post, in case any one missed it:
So my local tea house is having a Marie Antionette Tea, complete with a costumed reenactors.  I figure, good or bad, it should be entertaining, and give us another excuse to wear 18th cent.  And afterward, I could have people back over at my house for lawn games and some more food.  Here is the info from the website:                                                 .Read more... )


Let me know if anyone is interested
