I used a historical pattern f a XVIII’s century “robe à l’anglaise” to sew this outfit for the “Journée Grand Siècle” (great century day) of the Vaux-le-Vicomte castle, a fantastic day where everybody can come to the castle in a XVII or XVIII outfit and have a classy pic-nic on the garden.
I sew the entire outfit, I even made the hat and created my own pattern for the little bonnet (I don’t know the english word, the white stuff I used to cover my short hair with style). By the way, I put this pattern on my blog, it’s in french but quite easy to understand : http://sakikojones.fr/blog/1559-tuto-de-la-coiffe-ancienne. This was a really nice and fun project, even if mine wasn’t the most beautiful outfit of the day (I was jumping on everybody to see the amazing fabrics they used, I couldn’t put a lot of money myself n it and was amazed by the perfection of some of the other’s clothes !).
