Jane Austen Festival Australia 2012 -getting there and day 1

For the last 6 months, I have made all the required garments to attend the festival. The most time consuming project I have done so far in my costuming journey and I enjoyed doing it and will do it again, This is what I have done in the last 6 months: I made a full set of Regency underpinnings, two white Regency gowns, an Empire style evening dress, Regency open robe, and the 1820s Archery gown,Regency Spencer jacket, a pair of crocheted gloves, a crocheted shawl, a bonnet and a beanie. I refurbished 2 Regency gowns I made 2 years ago and wore them at the festival. I also refurbished an 18th century wool short cape I made 2 years ago and wore it at the festival at night.

I didn't realise you'd crocheted the gloves as well!

Well done, you got so much done, and it was all beautiful :)

Thank you! My mum taught me how to crochet when I was little. But I never made anything and always relied on her to make things for me. JAFA got me to start making things which I did not do and now crocheting becomes a very leisure hobby for me.

I can't wait to see all your regency outfits up close... Great big achievement! Well done!

I really love the pink open robe too.. :)

Thank you! I did not get a chance to have a close up picture of me wearing the pink open robe, but sure I will wear it to any future Regency event in Brissy. The only picture I have wearing the pink robe is in the group picture.
