Bygonne has been wearing a long sleeved tunic fashioned from two pashmina shawls. It is a sure thing for instant dressup for 2016! Currently on the ironing board is a sweet mini dress for my grandaughter. Found a piece of kelly green eyelash that should suit this 13 year old fashionesta! Of historical fashion note" Queen Maud's dress form is wearing her Coronation Gown. It took me about 5 years to find the fabric. She isn't very patient nor obliging; I finally made a dress form for her (alas, not to be called TheDummy)because she had a serious problem with scheduling Fittings... ________________________________________ From: h-costume-boun...@indra.com <h-costume-boun...@indra.com> on behalf of Magge Genie <maggeg...@gmail.com> Sent: Friday, December 18, 2015 2:03 AM To: Historical Costume Subject: Re: [h-cost] What's your dummy wearing this season?
Mine would be wearing a hand-sewn man's Viking tunic and a woman's Viking coif. I'm doing some detailed embroidery on the coif for a friend who has had breast cancer this year.
