Hats and gowns and a uniform. This set is for the Dickens Festivals here in Kent. These happen in Rochester, Margate and Broadstairs. There is also a Christmas event in Rochester.
Peter wanted a ‘French Legionary’ style, and Vicky wanted a gown that would do for both day and evening. The Chemisette and the cuff frills are detachable.
Patterns came from Truly Victorian (Vicky’s bodice), Butterick (Peter’s jacket), McCalls (Peter’s waistcoat), and were hand drafted by me (Vicky’s skirt and the peplum of her bodice, both hats, the frills, and the chemisette).
The fabrics came from a number of sources, some lost in the mists of time! They have been in my stash for more than 10 years.
