Photos – Costume “Bal des Favorites”

As followup to my video post of the costume ball:

The vibrant colors, rich textures, and varied styles of costumes were stunningly beautiful and a sight to behold!  Some of the attendees were ‘pros’ at these kind of events and had even made their own dresses and menswear !

So, that got me thinking, although I haven’t sewn in a very long time, maybe I could make a gown for myself.  I would have to use a borrowed sewing machine, and I’m not sure I can really do this, but if so, what color brocade fabric would you suggest ?

    So this is what you have in mind for your period dress! With your coloring, the first thing I picture is lavender with gold (metallic) brocade, but I think some of the rich burgundies and deep teals would also suit you well.

    Of course a color to compliment your hair and eyes, which will also stand out like fuchsia.
