Rebecca was actually supposed to wear the Laurel dress for the talk on the 2oth of Nov, but I was so scatterbrained that day I tried to duplicate her and put her in two dresses, so she ended up in the Regency.
You know what though? I think she looks lovely.
I loooooove the back of this dress! And the hair ornamentations.
Madame Ornata lent me the shawl for the talk. It’s a real Indian shawl embroidered with paisley designs. Not an actual Kashmiri paisley shawl, but should I ever be lucky enough to afford one I probably won’t let models trail it around for photoshoots!
Rebecca is wonderfully elegant and graceful in this dress, and looks so tall and slim.
And I’m terribly envious of her profile too. Look at that elegant nose!
She was a little shy in front of the camera sometimes though. I had to tease her to relax.
As a result, some of the best photos of Becca are the casual ones Madame O took.
I love the photo of Rebecca using her phone.
I laughed out loud with I visualized a scene Elizabeth Bennet texting Charlotte Lucas about Mr. Darcy on an Android.
Tee hee! I don’t think I even noticed the phone when I posted the picture!
This is one of my faves! Everything you do is gorgeous, but I’m particular to the regency. What fabric did you use for this? It has such an elegant drape! 🙂
Aww…thanks! The fabric is a gauzy voile with a woven in stripe. You can read more about it in the dress diary.
I thought noone could look as positively Austenian than Elisabeth, but really, Rebecca really suits it!! And Lis suits the raspberry paisley SO much, even better! Perfect!
Very lovely! And the hair is super!
Mrs C did the hair – and the fabulous binding is hers too.
Gorgeous braid isn’t it. I picked it up from a local designer’s stall at an even we call Fabricabrac, a sort of bring and buy for fabric and sewing related stuff. It’s italian metallic braid – VERY 1993!! 🙂
But also very 1913!
