I have a bit of an itch to make something late 1820s, 1830s. Crazy, I know. Crazy GIGOT SLEEVES! Crazy!
But…but…some are quite pretty. And it’s a most unloved era. I feel a great challenge in getting the silhouette correct, so I may have to give it a go. Here are some stomachable examples (in my opinion):
I’ll end with my most favorite Romantic garment ever, this pink gown from LACMA. I think if I try for this period, I will try to make this one…
This gown is pink silk satin with an overlay of organza beaded with imitation pearls. I find it stunningly beautiful and incredibly challenging, especially all those pearls, but so drool-worthy! So…perhaps Costume College next year? Hehe..no pressure!
