Back again

Hello, hello. I’m back from my vacation and a very nice vacation it has been too. I haven’t sewn as much as I had planned, but as I hadn’t any deadline, that’s fine. I’ve tinkered with my cotton-candy jacket- right now I’m setting the sleeves. I’ve made a pattern for an early 18th century jacket and I worked quite a bit on my embroidered linen gown.

We did have occasion to dress up though, as the out of door museum Skansen had their annual 18th century weeks. We spent all weekend in 18th century clothes.

Janne on the staircase of the 18th century city house belonging to the family Tottie. Unfortunately it wasn’t open.

And in the garden.

Peeking into the gazebo of Emmanuel Swedenborg. No spirits in sight, though.

In the hall of Skogaholm’s manor house, waiting for a concert.

It was a lovely concert! Mostly Bellman with cembalo and lute and singing.

When not looking corny, Janne quite look like Gustaf III in 18th century clothes.

Lovely! And yes, every time I see Janne it strikes me how he has the perfect Gustavian profile!

Oh my goodness, Janne looks just like him!!!!!

Looks like you had a wonderful time - you both look very stylish, indeed :) I'm glad you had a great holiday, though I will say that, selfishly, it's great to have you back, too!

Madame Berg: I know! And it was nice to see you again!

Gentlewomanthief: We had! Thank you- it's good to be back. I'm sure I have missed tons of good stuff, though!
