Dd is being a posh georgian girl (circa 1731) in the carnival next week. I was going to make her something but have not had time and as I am back at work it is not going to happen. I need to buy something.

I have some long gloves, an underskirt and pantaloons.
We do have an empire line dress although it need some form of underdress and it is not right for the era.

Here are some examples of clothes from the time,


Here are options to buy
option 1option2
option 3 without the crown
option 4 without the hat perhaps
option 5
option6 but this is expensive
option 7
option 8
option 9

OPtion 4.

Good luck next week say hi to the tA's from Sophie

Purplepillow Sun 31-Aug-08 18:44:44

I think option 4 even with the hat looks about the best, although not sure about the colour grin

twinsetandpearls Sun 31-Aug-08 18:45:05

Will do I am in tomorrow for INSET

filthymindedvixen Sun 31-Aug-08 18:45:52

Option 4, though I think the hat 'makes' it.
Thgough I suspect you will have to buy whichever one she is likely to wear after the event as dress up clothes etc..

twinsetandpearls Sun 31-Aug-08 18:48:33

I was wondering about the hat just now.

The likelihood of her wearing it again are quite rare, she is in her goth phase! grin although she is a member of the local museum historical group so she may use it again for another event.

twinsetandpearls Sun 31-Aug-08 18:49:17

what do you mean by the colour purplepillow? Why are you grinning at me?

brimfull Sun 31-Aug-08 18:50:20

option 4
or if it was me I'd buy the cheapest

BloodySmartarse Sun 31-Aug-08 18:50:26

opt 4 or 9 maybe.

twinsetandpearls Sun 31-Aug-08 18:55:58

4 is qute a hit cheaper than 9.

MommyHasaHeadache Sun 31-Aug-08 19:02:54

Like 4 the best - with the hat

myalias Sun 31-Aug-08 19:04:56

Option 3 looks like Marjorie Dawes daughter

twinsetandpearls Sun 31-Aug-08 19:23:47

pmsl mylias, she does.

PortAndLemon Sun 31-Aug-08 19:26:51

4 or 6. Which means 4 if 6 is expensive...

savoycabbage Sun 31-Aug-08 19:28:44

Yes. $ but with the hat or it just looks like Disney Princess Bell's dress.

KatyMac Sun 31-Aug-08 19:30:14

How old is she?

twinsetandpearls Sun 31-Aug-08 19:31:06

I really like 6 it look the least like a Disney dress to me but dp would flip if I spent that much. But I may be motivated by the fact that dd will never wear pink anymore and this may be my last chance to see her in pink.

4 is my second choice.

If anyone sees anything better let me know

KatyMac Sun 31-Aug-08 19:33:11

I may have something

Majeika Sun 31-Aug-08 19:35:07

number 4 definitely - with the hat

twinsetandpearls Sun 31-Aug-08 19:35:07

Go on reveal KatyMac she says excitedly.

We are clearly not fans of the early Georgian period, the internet is full of tudor, edwardian and victorian but nothing from the time I need.

KatyMac Sun 31-Aug-08 19:36:19

How old is she?

IllegallyBrunette Sun 31-Aug-08 19:37:32

They normally have dresses similar to number 6 on ebay.

twinsetandpearls Sun 31-Aug-08 19:38:19

She is a few weeks of 7.

I looked in ebay and gave up.

KatyMac Sun 31-Aug-08 19:40:14


It's age 8
It's very pink/barbiehmm

Would you like a photo

KatyMac Sun 31-Aug-08 19:40:50

Or I have a white cotton underskirt with spaghetti straps - knee length
