Pleated Posies of silk satin and organza await to be stitched to their skirt. Making progress! 🙂
Spring is just around the corner, and we’ve been preparing for a busy dress up season, starting with Clockwork Alchemy next week, then London, Bath, Tombstone, Germany, Paris, and a few Victorian Balls in between. Be sure to book your next gown or corset ahead of time, our bespoke slots are filling up for the year!
We’re only a little more than month away until we once again board Air New Zealand and head off to England…we’ll be spending four days in London and then moving on to Bath for the 2019 Prior Attire Ball. 🙂
Naturally this will require a new ball gown and it’s currently under construction…I can’t reveal the details just yet but don’t worry, there will be preview coming very soon. 🙂 Last year was a lot of fun and so we’re going to do it again but this time we’ll be visiting some of the sights around Bath in more detail than what we did the last time…and of course, well be “taking the waters”…well, more like taking a small sip.
Stay tuned for more soon!
We had such a good time at the 2018 Prior Attire Victorian Ball in Bath, England that we’re doing it again in 2019! We’ve already secured out tickets and made reservations on Air New Zealand (highly recommended). Sponsored by Prior Attire, a reproduction garment maker in England, the ball is scheduled for May 5, 2019 and will be held at the Bath Assembly Rooms which is a fantastic venue for a ball. We will also be spending some time in London, touring museums and looking for fabrics (and anything else that strikes our fancy).
It promises to be an excellent time and we’re looking forward to being able to take the waters at Bath again (well, maybe we’ll settle for tea…) and of course we’ll be designing new outfits- stay tuned for more! 🙂
