I made a new dress for myself, using the same pattern from my maroon round gown. I had bought this amazing striped silk taffeta from Samantha that was just begging to be made into something 1780s. For accessories, I wore a Queen Anne necklace that I made, along with matching earrings. (The same style of necklace is available in my Etsy shop, here, and I am happy to make matching earrings by request.) I finished everything off with my American Duchess Dunmore shoes.
Maggie made a lovely new striped sack gown using fabric she had purchased at Fort Fred a while back.
Stephanie wore her dramatic black and white ensemble, accessorized with green for St. Patrick’s Day.

It was wonderful to meet in person so many folks from Instagram, including Amber, Colette, and Sarah. Part of why I love attending the Francaise Dinner each year is that I always meet new costuming friends!
