Sunday morning at Coco was Breakfast Belles and Beaux. I had planned to wear my so very comfy and very lovely pistachio green Edwardian Corset with my lace insertion combinations, but when the packet for Coco came out and I read that the theme had changed, I knew what I would wear. I had purchased a small yardage of gorgeous embroidered silk years ago with the knowledge that I would turn it into a Kimono. Huzzah!!! I now had a reason to make it! Now I had to think up some pajamas. Enter Pinterest...of course! I found this fabulous image of a 1920s vixen in some silk PJs!! Laaaaaaa!!! I had two golden silk curtain panels that were put to use in the making of the pjs....this was such a comfortable morning! Yeah for Belles and Beaux!!!
Of course I took a ton of pictures of other ladies and gentlemen in their jammies and you can look at them HERE.
I didn't take any pictures of me in my Royal Ascot Tea dress because I had a lot of them taken last month...the post can be found HERE. Sadly, I didn't get a full length picture of Josie and me....only a selfie...:-(
My Facebook Royal Ascot Tea album can be found HERE.

Georgiana's dress matches my outfit!! Josie and I felt our husbands should join us for breakfast...via our Royal Family Orders...
Kimono sleeves are so much fun!! I need to make a full length kimono with the fabulous full length sleeves.
Those 20s ladies struck some really silly/fun poses!
Two ladies in their PJs!! This was a fun day!
Laaaaa!!! I think that I will have to make more 1920s silk pajamas. They are beyond comfortable!
Be blessed my friends!
I really love the pastel colors of this set, remind me of ice cream! And your hair is gorgeous - again... I read about boudouir dolls. It's super interesting! (I know my comments are getting tiringly enthusiastic, but I can't help it, I'm so stunned by your work that only compliments come to my mind!)ReplyDelete
Oh you are right!! They do look like ice cream! Thank you for your wonderfully enthusiastic compliments, you are so sweet!! They are not at all tiring! Bouroir dolls are so very interesting...especially the ones that looked like actors and actresses from the era!Delete
Wow, I'll have to check them out too! Do you think they had a Buster Keaton one, haha?Delete
Ha!! Yes they actually do! I found this one on Pinterest...Delete
Awwww thanks! Isn't it the cutest thing ever? I am soo going to have one in my bedroom someday! I need my own Buster Keaton right now. Awesome!Delete
It is! I hope you are able to find one!! That would be way fun!Delete
Super cute! Lovely color combination and the fabrics are fabulous!ReplyDelete
Thank you so much Quinn! I really love the fabrics...Delete
Fabulous! Silk pjs are on my sewing "to do" list this winter. :)ReplyDelete
Yay! I can't wait to see your pjs Emily!! That is if you are going to share them! hahahaha!! Thank you so much!Delete
I might need to make something like this for "traveling" pjs, as mine always seem blah and ordinary. You're far from ordinary.ReplyDelete
Oh yes Val! Make some traveling pjs!! You will love them...the silk is so soft and buttery smooth!! I can't wait to see what you come up with!Delete
Your pjs turned out awesome! I LOVE the kimono. Makes me want some...ReplyDelete
Thank you LM!! The kimono makes me pretty happy....I hope you do make one! It is super comfy and fun!Delete
Oh I love your pjs! So adorable and comfy looking!ReplyDelete
Thank you Aubry! They were very comfy and very soft! I taught my wire frame hat class in them at Coco and they were surprisingly easy to move around in...and no corset!! Laaaaaa!!!Delete
This was so amazingly beautiful! Fun photos too!ReplyDelete
Thank you Jeanette!! Fun pictures are the best ones!!! Especially the vintage posing!Delete
