This week my dear friend Rebecca has been visting! We had planned on being very productive and getting ever so many sewing projects done - but alas. It was not to be. Instead we decided to do a Regency photoshoot. And for that, of course, one must have curls.
So - here we are late at night rolling each curl up in a rag. (old pieces of hose)
ta-da! In the morning curls appear! I went for a slightly Marie-Antoinette-ish look, and with Rebecca a sweet simple twist with curls cascading down each side.
We were blessed to have the perfect photographic light outside. Bright white cloudy light with just a touch of a breeze. It was excellent weather for photos!
This one reminded me of Elinor and Marianne
Oh dear! Marianne has sprained her ankle!
In the garden...
A rather ghostly Wuthering-Heights-ish photo.
...the improvement of her mind by extensive reading. (P&P chapter 8)
Rebecca is wearing the pink linen dress I mentioned before. Doesn't she look lovely?
I wore the white sheer dress with a black ribbon and locket, accessorized with a hot-pink ribbon sash and a hairflower.
Rebecca has also posted pictures at her blog!
Quite a perfectly perfect Regency day, wouldn't you say?
