Living in Jane Austen's World, Part 2: The Fashion Show

On the first day of the conference, there was a luncheon and style show. Since it cost extra, I did not go to it, but I managed to worm my way behind the scenes where the ladies were being prepared! So I got a good look at the outfits nonetheless.

Here is my friend Amy being transformed:

Now here's a bonnet for ya:


Ooooooh, my favorite colors, red and gold together:

Goodness, the poor lady on the left.... can you imagine having to wear a tunnel like that?!
I *can* tell you that she hated it, poor thing!

It seems that headgear and gloves were an integral part of every outfit worn outside the home. 
At least, that's the impression I got.

Almost ready for the runway.... Smile.....
