Two weeks ago me and my sister attended a small gathering of historic enthusiasts for a “Fika” in the local “old town”.
Once me and my sister spent way to long getting ready, we took the bus to the location and hurried to catch up with the others.
We all invaded a small coffee shop, and caused a stir in the other guests who (as usual) wanted to take photos.
It was a lovely event and besides the historic clothes it almost felt like an ordinary “fika” with friends.
My sister looking fab, in her Edwardian outfit and Hairdo.
“What’s that over there….?”
Sara (the initiator to this meeting) asked everybody to tell a bit of our costumes and we got the chance to really look at all the clothing and ask questions. Here is Sara in her gorgeous 1880s bustle ensemble.
Yvonne wore a colorful regency gown, paired with turban made from a shawl.
Those 18th century stays are to die for, and she paired them with a great plaid skirt, apron and of course appropriate head cover.
Then we went outside to chat some more and to take even more pictures.1920s backsides
Both Denise (left) and Pernilla (right) are in my historic sewing group.
And they made their dresses just in time for this event (between studying and exams).
Pernilla also writes of this event on her blog “fashion of the days gone by”, read the post here.Let me just say how much I love both their outfits, and those shoes! OMG, I definitely need to get myself some 1920s styled pumps.
It was a bit chilly, so we all had our outerwear on most of the time.
Karin is showing her bloomers beneath her lovely plaid skirt.

“Do my bum look big in this?” – Yes and I love it!
There was no end to Saras wardrobe – Here she’s wearing a Dolman, made from a Truly Victorian pattern, with the most delightful swoon to the back.
I’m not even sure what Dan is doing – lets just say he looks great in his red and white self made ensemble.
Ludwig looks as smashing as ever in newly made plaid breeches and well groomed facial hair.

Thanks to everyone who attended, it was so nice meeting you all. And lets hope we can do this again sometime.
