Such fun day today…
It was a wonderful family occasion working for my Aunt who is an extremely talented seamstress and runs “Tailors through Time”.
She has been very busy designing and making each and every outfit as it would’ve been made during the Victorian era, so that she can take them into the local schools of Crawley, Horsham and the surrounding area and provide workshops for Year 3 and 6.
The plan today was to go to Weald and Downland museum so the children could have a look round and try on the outfits in the beautiful museum setting. Due to the rain though, we ended up bringing the photo shoot session forward and the children had a great time trying on the outfits and testing out their “Victorian” poses in the studio instead.
I’m really excited about editing the photos but here is one sneak preview of all the children together in the amazing period costumes. If you are a teacher and are interested in Victorian workshops for Year 3 and 6, these outfits are absolutely beautiful and your students will love to try them on. Colour versions and closes up to follow….
The models here are:
Hayden – age 10, Katie – age 10, Maddie – age 8, Alfie – age 7, Harvey – age 6 and Bailey the dog – age 9 and as you can see the outfits fit them perfectly.
