Accessorise!

So I've made some Regency accessories lately. You might remember my red stovepipe bonnet? Well, I finally trimmed it and I like it. I'm not sure if I let my 21st century sensibilites take over; I didn't place the rosettes as high as on period fashion plates but frankly, they looked stupid on a 3D hat (as opposed to a 2D drawing of a hat, seen only from one side) so I feel my hat trimmings and their placement are justified.

I also made a new reticule. The fabric is the same cotton velvet as on the bonnet. The embroidery pattern is an original from 1823 Ackermann's Repository I found here.



The hat with my Museum of London pelisse


My turquoise bedroom walls really make a wonderful backdrop for photos :)




I modified the original pattern by adding a monogram letter in the middle

  3. The reticule is amazing, your embroidery is so neat and professional! I have some velvet in about the same colour, now I might have an idea what to make of it...

  5. Miten mä en aiemmin ole hoksannut käydä sinun blogissa. Tämä puku on vaan kertakaikkisen tyrmäävä! Ihan erityisesti pidän tuosta sivuprofiilikuvasta, siinä on jotakin erityistä viehätystä.
    Kiitos että jaksat käydä kommentoimassa mun onnettomia ei-niin-periodiin-sopivia räpellyksiä :D Tunnustan, olen ollut vähän laiska ja mennyt helpoimman kautta, mutta siihen saattaa olla tulossa muutosta pikku hiljaa ...
