Jane Austen, A to Z: Costume

There’s a ball this weekend. I have nothing appropriate to wear. Jeans and a sweatshirt won’t make the cut. They might not let me attend the ball in my regular clothes. Whatever shall I do?

Well, there are a few options for those of you interested in finding a costume for a Jane Austen ball.

  1. DIY: You could find a dress pattern and make it yourself. There are links on Pinterest and YouTube. I added a link about a Regency hairstyle.
  2. Etsy: This option could save you from having a panic attack. Since I cannot sew, I would go with this option.
  3. Thrift Stores: You might be able to find accessories or jewelry that would work with your costume. Unfortunately, the chances of finding an empire dress might be fairly slim.

I could be the worst cook in America. My boyfriend tells his friends about my cooking disasters. I'm glad someone is amused. I like movies, music, comic books and corny jokes.

  1. I can just see someone combing the thrift stores asking if anyone has seen a Jane Austen. Although, it is probably not the most unusual thing someone has asked about in a thrift store…

      1. I do some basic braiding. Pony tail for sure. 🙂 My daughter is good with hair. She dyes her own hair. Puts in extensions. She’s got talent with doing hair.
