My wonderful mother-in-law, Mary, helped me mark a few more items off of my 18th century costuming list this Christmas!
I’ve been feeling a little overwhelmed with everything I need to make for my first costume, as well as my husband’s (and I intend to make others). Most of the items I’m making myself, but there are those accessories that I need to purchase. Every little bit helps get that list whittled down even more.
These accessories come from Jas. Townsend and Son, Inc. I have never ordered from there before, but have wanted to for a while. I sent a few links to items I needed, and Mary was so very kind to get them for me. I’m very pleased with the items I received.
I now have a bergère hat, three fans, and clocked stockings. I will need to finish the hat, but I’ll wait until the actual outfit is finished (or at least have the fabrics purchased). The stockings seem like they’ll be very comfortable, and I can’t wait to finally be able to order the Fugawee Martha shoes I want.
These items will go great with my outfits, and I look forward to getting the chance to wear everything together in 2011 sometime (hopefully).
Thanks so much, Mary! What a lucky gal I am 😀
