Last Saturday was the America's Hometown Thanksgiving event in Plymouth, Mass where I had the great opportunity to portray a milliner. Here are some photos from the event. You may recognize many of the items from past posts such as the pudding cap on the right which I made last year.
A few photos of our tent...
The red silk gown and petticoat I made this summer are hanging in the center, to the left of them is the green wool gown from my runaway impression and the baby / toddler stays I made last year are on the table, which was quite the topic of conversation for visitors.
I wore the floral cotton gown I made this summer, but this is the only photo that sort of shows the gown.
My fellow milliner!
The embroidered stomacher I started last fall and abandoned is on the right...and it's almost done!
I tried braiding my hair and looping it like I saw in a 1782 milliner print, but by the end of the day it didn't look as lovely as the woman's hair from the illustration. (And yes, since it was a super chilly day, I wore two shifts.)
