A Quick ‘Behind The Scenes’ Of My Versailles Evening

All those pictures of Versailles look amazing, but a lot of work went into looking effortlessly elegant. Some of the work I’ll be sharing in posts specifically about my hair and gown, but I also have a few pictures from the day along the same lines that didn’t quite fit into main post. They’re more ‘behind the scenes’. Enjoy!

Getting ready. My half finished hair is half powdered, to show the difference in color. As you can see, I only did a light bit of powder.

  1. I second the motion! I stand in absolute awe at the gorgeous, detailed, well researched garments you make. You let the rest of us live (and sew) vicariously through you.
