I thought you may like to read about the Regency Costume Talk and Display I presented on 30 March 2015 for Cumbria-Westmorland Federation of WI’s.
The excerpt below is taken from the WI Website –
“Half-Yearly Council Meeting March 30th 2015
Gill, Doreen, Jill and Ann all went to Kendal Town Hall on a wild evening for the Half-Yearly Council meeting.They were entertained by Julia Soares-McCormick (ably assisted by her husband Mick) with her talk entitled ‘Enter the World of Jane Austen’.There were four models on stage showing different costumes from the regency times: underwear, morning dress, afternoon dress and wonderful evening wear.

Julia told us about her training in stage design and explained in great detail all about the different costumes. She had made them all herself and you can see how wonderful they are in the pictures below.

(I have also added a couple of my pictures I took while the members were arriving – I thought you might like to see them as they show the interior of the beautiful Town Hall.)
