From the Prado

Last weekend I tripped on into the bustling city of Brisbane again for a trip to the Art Gallery. We were there to see the exhibition from the Prado museum. We weren't allowed to take photos inside, however I can safely say that there was a multitude of stunning pieces of art work. It was just incredible and I am so glad that I made the effort to go.

But, since the art was period, I decided to organise the trip as a group for the Australian Costumers Guild. And we decided to dress in Georgian - Regency. We had 1740s right through to 1810s. I decided to re-wear my green skirt and bodice. But I did have to make a new hat. My previous one had an unfortunate incident where it fell in the mud - it ended up being tossed. This time around though I knew what I was doing and I added a really nice mull layer under the felt. For it all, the hat feels a lot sturdier and plusher. I love it now. But for the photos:


  1. What a wonderful event! You all look like perfection to me :)

  2. You all look fabulous!
    I was wishing I had my 18th century outfit sorted just the other today so I could do exactly that! Attend the Prado exhibition.
    I didn't realise there were so many women locally into my favourite period.
    Ok off to buy linen for the corset outer.
    Following you now!!!!

  3. Thank-you ladies. I do love Georigan. The hardest part about attending is deciding which of my Georigan costumes to wear. And then there is always the temptation to make something new. MUST RESIST!!!!
