I was going to make on but have not had time. And she needs it for next saturday.

She is in our local carnival and is a psh georgian girl escaping from a fire.

if I can't get a full outfit I do have an empire line dress and some long gloves, so would need something like a victorian style nighhtdress to go underneath.

Am looking on ebay without much luck, where else.

Another option is to get something like a Belle costumne - as it will be hooped and customize it. Am a bit annoyed that I gave one away just before we moved.

Sorry I can't help but PMSL at her being a posh georgian girl escaping from a firegrin Is this a Mills and Boon themed float, or are they doing people escaping from fires through the ages?

It is the Blandford carnival, our town was rebuilt after a fire.
