Because I'm insane, I've decided to participate in this: http://demodecouture.com/18th-century-
court/comment-page-1/#comment-55564 . I've got some white and silver brocade, and almost 15 meters of lavendar and silver sari silk, so I should be able to come up with something fun with it. Now mind you, I don't have an 18th cen. corset, or the panniers, or the correct chemise, for that matter, so this will be quite the undertaking. I'm hoping to be able to go to Costume College next year, so I'll at least have somewhere to wear it.
