I've been working hard this week trying to finish my dress for the Downton Abbey Experience event this Saturday. Cori will be wearing vintage tuxedo which I can't wait to share! He ordered a white waistcoat and collar which arrived before Christmas. After a bit of soaking the collar looks good as new. Now we are both hoping that his shirt and tie get here in time. Yikes it's getting close!
Here's a sneak peek at some of my accessories.
Up first, the shoes. The are late 1920s or early 1930s, made of black leather with a 2 1/2" heel. They need a bit of touching up here and there. Must remember to put black shoe polish on my shopping list. :)
Next an Art Deco beaded purse that I found on Etsy, a black feather fan, compact, and other bits of bling! The green fabric you see in the background is from my dress. :)
And for your viewing pleasure, two videos showing evening wear from 1922 and 1928. Enjoy!
