Edward VI Recreation

I stumbled across this site while looking for a pattern for a coif. Adventures in Costuming has documented her process of making a historical costume for her little boy, the result of course is quite gorgeous. I chucked at some of the development pictures in her blog, in particular the one of her son asleep on the changing table while she is fitting the costume.

The last major costume I made was our Regency outfits. I made my husband sit through all 6 hours of the BBC's Pride and Prejudice series as I sewed his costume. In the end I had to get him to sew in the lining to his jacket as I was running out of time. Unfortunately I cannot fit into my dress, still carrying a bit more pudding since I had Tori, but my hubby fits into his and looks stunning in it!. For our next Regency event, I will have to make another dress (what a pity!).

Oh my - that dress is so beautiful! I'm really stunned by just how lovely it is... so stunned in fact that it has taken some time for it to sink in that you managed to get your husband to watch through the 6 hours of Pride and Prejudice and then wear the outfit!

My husband won't watch it for more than a few minutes before tutting and there is no way I would get him into such a lovely outfit :(

I adore your Regency costumes.
