Francaise Dinner 2015

For the 2015 Francaise Dinner I wore my lavender robe a la francaise with a brand new stomacher and wig.

The stomacher was made gathered self fabric trim with fringed edges, on top of which I sewed a small chain of silk organza puffs covered in sequins.

The gathered self fabric trim and the beginnings of my organza chain.

The organza sewn on, I added the sequins.
The finished product!

I also made a new wig for the event, this time with a much bigger ship than last year. My new ship was approximately 14 inches tall!

My hair was so tall I couldn't sit up straight in the car, so I had to lie down on my journey to the Dinner.

In conclusion, it was a wonderful night!

  1. What a great outfit and wig! The 18th century has always been one of my favorite periods in fashion.
