I am at Costume College! Yesterday we went to the garment district where I was VERY BAD, to the tune of 12 yards of embroidered/striped silk taffeta for my 1750s-ish French court dress. And some white taffeta for an 18th century masquerade dress I’ve been planning for a while. And 2 more yards of the purple & white striped so I can make a day bodice (the Daniel Deronda dress!) for my 1870-1 evening dress. And jewels for my Tudor dress. eep! Took a class today on historical influences in fashion, off to fairy wings in about 30 min. Wearing the 18th c. tart and looking fabulous, as does everyone else! Yay! More soon.
