18th century jacket: finally photographed
This jacket was intended to be worn on the way home from my wedding *laugh*. It was finally finished and not worn until this year! I happened to be 8 months pregnant at the time so I left the ties open as necessary. I tried putting in a stomacher but all mine were too heavily boned so they ruined the belly bump and made me look “square”. If I had to do it again I’d have made a soft quilted stomacher to go under the opening of the jacket.
I worked with the lovely photographer Rummy as well as a make-up artist Wendy Tran for the first time and enjoyed the experience (hair done by me):
In just a chemise & bow (not 18th century but another cute pregnant belly shot):
All very lovely! You look fabulous, as always!
You look gorgeous and so does the jacket.
How long have you been doing your own hair for events, and how do you keep it in place? I can barely manage to keep mine in a braid; yours always looks fantastic in photos.
Beautiful ensemble! Will you be doing one with your baby in 18th century gear too? Some children’s clothing is just so adorable from the era.
No I haven’t gotten to making him any 18th century outfits and at this point he is 8 and more resistant to dressing up.
