It's for the classic fitted back English gown (robe a l'anglais) with a pleated back and will be taught by Brooke Welborn, Journeywoman of Millinery and Mantua-Making.

She's brillz.

Absolutely brilliant.

  1. I wants to go :-( Wonder what workshop they might be holding next year, October...?

  2. Hey, it's me up there! I can not say enough about the usefulness of this workshop or the amazing teacher! I think I've made at least two other gowns off the shapes as well. Here's the finished product you see me fitting:

  3. I'll see you there! I just reserved my spot today. Yay!!

  4. Wish I could be there! Maybe next year :)

  5. Lauren: Usually they plan the workshops 3 months in advance. So, I have no idea what they would be doing next fall, do you have any requests?

    Nicole: Yep! :D I liked the picture of you and Kate it's a good 'action' shot. :) Even though you (obv) attended the 09 event, are you taking Brooke's workshop?

    CD: I'll see you there! Wee!

    Lauren: Yes! Maybe next year! Though you'd probably have to stick your toes into the 1770s fashion pool. :) Though I could put in a 'suggestion' to Angela to talk to Janea about doing 1790s. That's a small section they haven't done yet and would really like to do. :D

  6. Not this time. I'm saving my pocketbook for the fall workshops (and fabric!!).

  7. I'm so sad that I'm missing this! On the other hand, being in France is a good excuse, in my book.

    I'm glad to have found your blog! I run a reenacting-related blog myself, and have been looking around for others! Mine is Historically Speaking:

  8. Oooh...I'm so envious! I guess I'm just going to have to keep doing it the hard way and figuring it out for myself :-(
