1708 - that’s rare!
Because it’s summer and I’m back home on holiday, I haven’t had much time to spend on maintaining this blog, and for that I am really sorry. My job, family, friends and most of all my boyfriend is taking up all the time I have - which is great! On Saturday I’m leaving for London, thereafter France. My love and me are going to spend a few weeks travelling the coast of France, starting with Charbourg and down, hopefully getting all the way to Nice! It will be a wonderful adventure and I cannot wait!^^
So I’m really sorry for the lack of updates and posting, but when August is drawing near its end, I will be back for intensive blogging/posting again! So this blog is NOT dead! It’s still up and running!
I really don’t know. It’s a 17th century period dress (kinda), so you should try searching for it on sites as eBay and Etsy.

Gala dress of Queen Maud of Norway ca. 1902
From the Digitalt Museum
She had such a tiny waist.
"Worth used beautiful and luxurious fabrics for his dresses, and he trimmed them with rich decoration, such as fringe, lace, braid, and tassels made of pearls. His many important contributions to design included an ankle-length walking skirt, shockingly short for its time, and the princess gown, a waist-less dress that hung simple and straight in the front while draping in full pleats in the back."
I believe that although he might have come up with the walking skirt, it was not commonly used in his design? I am not an expert in fashions at all, so if any of you followers would know, please contribute! :)
