Very short notice, but on November 12 Drottningholms Slottsteater are selling out some of their costumes. As they mainly use 18th century style costumes I though it might be of interest, especially to those who don’t make their own 18th century clothes!

Yesterday I went to Gustafs skål’s Twelfth night ball, and I had a wonderful time! I also met Isis, who had a fantastic foresty costume, and Madame Berg, who looked amazing, for the first time. I forgot to take any photos but my boyfriend took a few of my costume when I got back home. I wore the polonaise with a new but unfinished pelisse (the hood trim and armholes are missing). I was planning to make a matching muff as well but didn’t have time.

Linné painted by Roslin in 1775
The Linnaean Gardens of Uppsala are the gardens off famous Swedish 18th century botanist Carl von Linné, and the oldest botanical garden in Sweden. The gardens, and Linné’s summer house Hammarby are open to the public and seem to have 18th century events every now and then. This Sunday, August 15, there will be an 18th century market that I hope to go to. The calendar of events is only available in Swedish.

Photos from the day I visited the Lyss till 1700-talet event at Skansen a couple of weeks ago. I wore my new outfit.

Gunnebo slottsspel is an 18th century event held at the Gunnebo castle outside of Göteborg. From the website:
Gunnebo Slottsspel offers excellent 18th century musical entertainment, splendid costumes, inspiring lectures, historical food and stimulating dramatized guided tours. Be prepared for gun smoke and canons when the Swedish and danish troupes gather for the Kvistrum battle.
Visit the website by clicking the picture above. It’s available in both Swedish and English.
