I'm away on the first annual NZ Sew & Eat Historical Retreat this weekend, and we are making reticules. I'm using this little charmer as the inspiration for my shape, so here it is for #fallforcostume 'Little'. Those adorable little tassels! ⠀

Today’s #fallforcostume theme is #small trim might be a small detail but it’s definitely not a small task. Making eight yards of this trim took a little over 20 hours but it’s so cute! I’ll be applying it as the final detail on my gown tonight! Yay Sakizou Amethyst is almost done!

#big butts and we cannot lie! I'm playing catch up for #fallforcostume so here's my rendition of something big || my panniers are the biggest thing I own (Currently) which will be my foundations for my 'il mutto' gown, puffing out the sides and giving my child bearing hips all the love they need!

Sorry for the pink dress spam lately. After this I’m properly not don yet 😅 But I’m so happy that I could wear it already last Saturday at #salondelasocieteraffinee . Still work on this dress, bows and laces are missing. Next month the Winterbal is in D’Ursel, Belgium again, this year the dress code is the year 1773. And then the last things on the dress should be finished. *fingers crossed* I really like how you can see the details off the trimmings on the skirts off @atelier.marble.moon and my dress in the first picture. Thank you again @larosecoutureshari for that magical evening, hoping for a next time!! First two pictures are taken by Martijn van Huffelen and the last one is taken by Bart Kools. #sacquegown #historicalcostume #salondelasocieteraffinee #robealafrancaise #historicalcostuming #historicalsewing #pinkdress #americanduchessshoes #americanduchessguide #18thcenturydress #18thcenturyfashion

Today’s theme for the #fallforcostume is Small. I do t often make stuff for kids a and when I do it is usually a museum commission, but in those two cases hey were projects for friends and a a private commission- and the smallest outfits I have ever made ( not counting a jumper I crocheted for a hamster when I was 11. It wasn’t a success, forgot to make openings for the feet...) #first photo by @mockford_wedding_photography

Grace and I look like two generations of witches, I the coven-leader ancestor from the 1890s and her the punky young witch who is having to deal with the family curse. It’s actually part of my costume for “Tales of the Grand Guignol” at TheatreNOW. Playing Fridays and Saturdays at 7pm for the next 4 weeks. Get your tickets now!

This other article has been on facebook and my stories here for a while.
Sometimes I am asked how I make some things, how to start if you're a beginner. This is a quite long article that I think can give much help to the beginner and some help to the intermediate, to go from fancy dress look to something else, that looks more like clothing. I often make not historical choices to get dramatic looks, but it's like ballet for every dancer, once you know how to make historically accurate stuff, the rest is much easier.
Let me know what you think ;) https://www.grimildemalatesta.com/how-can-i-make-my-historical-costume-look-good/

The theme for day 11 of #fallforcostume was #lace. Anyone who knows me knows that I have a slight obsession with antique and vintage lace. I only ever use antique or vintage lace in my work to add authenticity. This is a piece from my collection that I believe to be Edwardian. It's to die for! ❤️#lace #edwardian #edwardianfashion #flowers #swirls #historical #antique #vintage #costume #costumier #historicalcostume

Had a wonderful time seeing traditional folk dancing at the hartlepool folk festival weekend! This was my favourite group the Lancashire wollopers and their horse wallop clogger. They did Lancashire clog dancing which was amazing and were so happy to talk to me.about their costumes! The costumes are based off traditional costumes although some parts were bought and others made. All the embroidery was done by the wearers and each symbol links back to Lancashire from the Lancashire roses to the canal boat scenes to pendel hill including a witch on a broom. Other symbols were more personal such as the horse and dog and some were totally decorative such as the vines up the side. The 1 of the aprons has been worked on for years on and off and is still in the process of being embroidered although due to the intense detail already upon it,it is impossible to nice during the performance #hartlepoolfolkfestival #folkfestival #folkmusic #folkdancing #folkcostume #traditionalcostume #lanchasire #clogdancing #lancashireclogdancing #embroidery #traditionalembroidery #costume ##costumedesign #costumier #costumedegree #historicalcostume #historicalclothing #culturalcostume #cultural #lanchasirewallopers #frenchknot #satinstitch #runningstitch #sewing #handsewncostume @hartlepool_folkfest

#FallforCostume Day 20: Small. I love my cute little pink hat that I made to go with my Tissot Dress!
.
I also love how perfectly my @dames_a_la_mode earrings set off the outfit. It’s the little things that make such a difference!

#fallforcostume day 20: SMALL. My son Finnegan’s very first costume definitely fits today’s theme. Born almost a month early, he was less than 6 lbs. and he was about 6 weeks old when he attended the Michigan Renaissance Festival for the first time in a shift and cap. At first glance people thought he was a doll!

Silk - I found this on Amazon Prime and watched it because it has Keira Knightley in, and we all know she’s the Period Drama Queen 👸🏻 it has some gorgeous scenery and it was nice to see a multi-cultural period drama, but otherwise it was really quite dull. Keira has a very minor role and for some bizarre reason they have her putting on an American accent when she’s supposed to be French 🤷🏼‍♀️ probably wouldn’t have finished it if I hadn’t been working a night shift with nothing better to do...

#fallforcostume big: this early bustle evening gown was a BIG undertaking for me — don’t underestimate how time consuming it is to make something with several layers and ~lots~ of trim! It was my first gown with that much detail, and though it has its issues, I’d love to wear it again.

😂For today's #fallforcostume with @redthreaded, #small, it's an outtake from when we did the smallest hair in our book, 'The American Duchess Guide to 18th Century Beauty" -- which was Abby's 1750s hair. ⠀
....instead of a pretty photo of Abby with her hair done...here's her afterwards...😂⠀

...happy Saturday!⠀

Dear @atelier.nostalgia in her black Camille boots 🖤!!! These are currently sold out, I do have 2 pair Camille boots in black/red www.la-rose-passementarie.com!
@Regran_ed from @atelier.nostalgia - My @americanduchess Camille boots came in yesterday (bought from @larosecoutureshari ). So it's shoe movie time! They're quite comfortable too, with the higher heel it's very noticeable how well balanced it is.
