This year will be my first time attending Costume College in LA. Nervous? Yes!
I’ve determined that during the day, easy 20th c. vintage wear will be great, but then there are the special events that will require special costumes. Those are..
- The Gala
- The Tea
- Sunday Undies
- Ice Cream Social
- (we won’t arrive in time for the Pool Party, oh well)
So, what to wear?
I’m thinking the pink vintage dress from The Haight, for the tea (even if one can’t do anything but stand up in it), and I only have one complete set of historical undies – 18th century.
|Power-sew this whole gown in one month?|
For Ice Cream social, should I wear the 1780s red polonaise, with its new red petticoat, or try to make up a new robe a l’anglaise a la polonaise in the “sherbetty” striped fabric I got for Colonial Williamsburg? (or finish the Polonaise Jacket of Doom and Hell, and wear that?)
|This is the Nevada flag of 1905, and the one I will be interpreting…|
As for the Gala, that’s top secret!! All the Northern Nevada ladies will be wearing a historical ensemble of their choice, in Nevada blue and silver. I’ve got mine started, but a long way to go.
And only one month to finish these things!!
