...for a night at Kristinehov! One of the wings will be transformed into an 18th century tavern/public house for this night and everyone is encouraged to "dress down" and portray the lower classes - craftsmen, soldiers, maids and such - Fun! A brewer is coming all the way from Norway to treat us to his home-made beer!
I made a jacket for this event.
I was inspired by this jacket from V&A. The original is quilted. I think my version would have looked very nice quilted, had I had the patience for it...
The tails will look better with some petticoats and a small bumroll.
I now realise should have used some stiffening in the front. It will not be perfectly smooth but I guess I have to live with that.
Hopefully I will have some pictures of me wearing it tomorrow!
And since it is Saturday... I mean Caturday!
