We have here Mr.John White of "Select Society" collecting his new Regency outfit. The first shot is of the silk waistcoat.Lined and backed with silk. The horizontal stripe (at this date), usually shows that the clothes are being worn as'livery'.
With the coat added, the 'character building' seems to be progressing! The coat is a copy of one in the Victoria & Albert Museum, made by the same methods.
It is rather apt that that the coat is a V.& A. copy, as it was due to make an appearance there 6 hours later!
I'm sure you'll agree, very stylish!
Things have been so busy here, that it's been a while since I managed to post. So first of all, let me introduce you to our new team member, Ms Fiona Dowler B.A.. Fiona, although young, (well by the standards of the rest of us here..!), has an honours degree in woven textile design and is an award winning designer, as well as being an experienced art & design teacher. Most importantly, Gini has said that she has a 'fine hand' at sewing.
Seen working here on a tudor kirtle for Loseley Hall, Fiona has a lot of talent and we hope that she will enjoy working with us.
