An upcoming 18th century weekend

Gustafs Skål celebrated its 15th anniversary at lovely Lövstabruk in September 2008. Pictures can be seen here. Now we will have a weekend, well, actually four days there, in May. My gentleman and I will only go over the weekend. I really look forward to it! One can choose different rates on the overnight living, so it’s possible to adapt the stay somewhat to your purse. We hope to stay in the manor house! More information can be found at Gustafs Skål’s webpage, though I’m afraid the information is in Swedish.

It vexes me a bit that I will have to be stayless. I will be recovering from surgery, nothing serious, but I won’t be able to wear stays. Luckily I have my casaque, so I do have something to wear.

I’m also considering my velvet wrapping gown.

As you wrap it, it can accommodate a lumpier shape than normal. I’ll have to try it and see how it looks. It would be nice to be able to change for dinner.
