Fancypants…well, Fancytop at any rate
So we had the dress picked out, ordered, made, and paid for….but I still hadn’t found what I liked for myself! And since I wasn’t going to marry my Faerie Princess unless I looked suitably like a Prince, doublet-shopping I went.
We found something that was very interesting that we both liked quite a bit, but disappointingly the vendor was…challenging to work with. Undeterred, we continued our search, and found Judith on EBay. She makes doublets like this one:
…and precisely my size! It is now hanging in my closet for the Big Day ™. It fits like it was made for me, and works very well to give me that suave princely air. 🙂 So that’s one of the big items off of my personal checklist.
For a top, I’m planning on something fairly blowsy and frilly, with black pants (silk!). I’m eying a pair of boots from Museum Replicas pretty thoughtfully as well. So the next question is, what if anything do I put on my head?
