A Grand Day Out

September 22, 2009

The weekend was fast approaching, and I was sewing for dear life trying to get my costume finished! Cuffs of spencer to hem, lining to finish off, trim for bonnet to hide the shaft and wires of the feathers…and a reticule to make! Will I ever get finished in time?

Friday morning was a packing frenzy, trying not to forget anything…costume, sewing stuff, camera and charger among the usual stuff. Off we set, calling in at Asda, then Pennells Garden Centre to pick up Robert’s mum.

One quick stop at services, and just over four hours later we were in Trowbridge. That evening I managed to finish my bonnet, abandoned the lace around the neckline of the spencer idea that I’d decided on, and began running up a reticule….which was also abandoned due to lack of time to finish it.

Saturday morning, ran iron over costume and got ready. We walked down to Karen’s, as she had offered to take us to Bath, and I was getting funny looks from motorists and passers-by. In the car, on the way, I realised that I had left my fan on the table…oh, poo!! Never mind.

Park car in multi-storey…head for Abbey Churchyard. Again, funny looks from people. They obviously have no idea what is going on! I love it!!

We arrived to find people in costume already milling about,2009 Promenade 1 and an announcement from John White, the MC, told us that the Promenade would begin at eleven…I thought it was supposed to be eleven-thirty! Anyway, I went in search of Rachel, Eileen and Natalia, and found Eileen sitting on a bench near the Abbey, and then we found Rachel and Natalia. Lots of hugging ensued, as this was the first time we’d all met up together.

While we were standing around chatting, one little person caught our attention. (When I say ‘little’, I mean little…one year old Braden Sullenberger from Pennsylvania, USA, was dressed in costume, just like his parents, Lisa and Greg.) He looked so sweet, as he stood there while people came and took photos of him. www.thisisbath.co.uk/news/Regency-record-set-Bath/article-1353407-detail/article.html

The Promenade began, and it felt strange being stared at by so many people who were crowding either side of the exit from the Abbey Churchyard onto Stall Street. Maybe they should set up barriers around this area, as we were stopped, after parading around The Colonnades/Bath Street and back round to Stall Street via Beau Street. Robert told me later that the tail-enders hadn’t even left the Abbey Churchyard as we made our way back up…I bet they weren’t expecting that!

Heading up Milsom Street, we turned right onto George Street and headed for the crossing, where a nice red-coat was holding up the traffic for us. One impatient motorist began tooting his horn, so I said we should all slow down, but the nice soldier let the traffic go.

This year, instead of taking the High Pavement to Gay Street and thence to The Circus, we went straight up a little lane to Alfred Street and joined the queue for the official count for the Guinness World Record attempt at the largest gathering of people in Regency costume: www.janeausten.co.uk/news.ihtml

Rachel and I are not in that picture, as it shows the other side of the ballroom! How dare they!! We were near the fireplace on the right of the double doors, not the left…oh, well…!

Outside, Robert, Eileen and Natalia were waiting for us, expecting us to leave by the back door like everyone else…but we had gone back to the bookshop to look at all those lovely costume books, so left by the front door. We were going to sneak up on them, but Natalia caught sight of Rachel’s pink dress and called her the Pink Panther.

On to the Royal Crescent2009 Promenade - Rachel, Natalia, & Sandi via The Circus, where we found everyone lining the railings…all the way round. What a sight! It turned out that this was for a souvenir panoramic photograph, and the photographer and a cameraman were down on the grass. The other side of the ha-ha more photographers were clicking away, so some people stayed where they were, even after the official guys had left.2009 Promenade - Royal Crescent 4 2009 Promenade - Royal Crescent 2

From the Royal Crescent, we headed down the Gravel Walk, and welcome shade, and on to Queen Square where a catering tent, stalls and entertainment had been laid on. Here, I took my Promenade ticket and collected my ‘Jane Austen Goody Bag’…containing a key ring, bent bookmark and a bottle of water…! Oh, joy!!

By this time, my feet were killing me, but it had all been worth it! I’d had a brilliant time, the weather had been perfect and I’d finally met three wonderful friends…Eileen, Rachel and Natalia. Thank you for making it such a memorable day…XXX

    Brilliant. I just know that in the mists of time in years to come I shall probably be relaying the story in my dotage and believe that I really was there as well. I know I dreamt I was after seeing the pics. It is going to be hard to switch off from these past few months of anticipation and waiting.

    I\’m still pumped up with Jane Austen Festival Fever, and am thinking about next year\’s costume…and thinking about making a bonnet using the Julia pattern that I bought last week (still no sign of my ticket BTW!) I am going to purchase Sense & Sensibility\’s Elegant Lady\’s Wardrobe pattern this time, though!!Who is going to join us for next year? Natalia, Rachel, Eileen…Anne…! Of course you will…you know you want to…! I can\’t wait…a whole year! Oh, no!!

    Did you realise that you weren\’t in full costume unless you had the gloves and the reticule? Didn\’t know that! So I think the overall numbers are slightly out because I had neither. Will do better next year and we\’ll have the full Bennett family too. It really was a fantastic day and wonderful to meet you all at last. Lovely blog Sandi. Nobody could have told it better! Here\’s to the tenth promenade. xx

    I have already decided that I want a little plush velvet purple spencer, a lilac and cream flowery patterned dress with a lighter patterned bodice, a reticule to match the spencer and BIG purple, cream and lilac feathers in my hat, also a fine gold shawl (already have that) with parasol to match. Oh! and a big banner on a pole announcing \’I am here\’.Is that ok with you all?

    Firstly….what a beautifully arranged and written blog Sandi….congratulations! The build-up to the weekend has made interesting reading, though i may not have commented on that many occassions (my knowledge of reticules, spencers etc being somewhat limited lol) it has been wonderful to see the anticipation and excitement of good friends rewarded with gorgeous weather and a fantastic time! xxx

    Hear! Hear!Actually, Rachel, the list of costume requirements was a guideline for those taking part…apparently, a few people had to wait outside because they were not in proper costume….like Buttons who looked like he\’d escaped from Pantoland, perhaps. You and I had the required accessories…bonnet and shawl. Besides, you had the relevant \’underpinnings\’ too.Maria…are you going to join us next year? The more the merrier!

    Bath has a costume hire shop called Farthingales, it is online, and the dress hire ranges from £35 up. They also have loads for the men.Sandi, maybe I/you can chop up my purple wedding dress and make something suitable.

    Have already checked out Farthingales…you\’ll see a few of their costumes in the promenade. Robin and Sue Seals own the company and you will see them in quite a few of the photos…and they are featured on the DVD Crazy About Jane (which is only £5 at the moment, from the Jane Austen Centre\’s online giftshop!))Chop up your wedding dress, Anne? Are you sure?! It\’s slippery satin, isn\’t it?!!

    I use LiveWriter, Eileen, so I can set margins around photos, position them where I want and put photopaper borders round them…I also like the rounded edges and some of the other effects…I guess I could have added the photos in b&w if I\’d wanted. Then again LiveWriter has more fonts, so that\’s another reason that I like it.I really am really looking forward to next year\’s Jane Austen Festival, now, and hope we will be able to stay for the whole week, instead of just the weekend!

    The parasols they sell on the Jane Austen site are available in a lot more colours on ebay, and at half the price too! Guess who\’s started thinking of next year? Really must get a proper shawl ……………….

    I would love to have a pagoda-shaped parasol, with fringe around the edge, and a long slender handle…oh, how elegant t\’would be!! I\’m in transports just thinking about it!! An ivory or mother-of-pearl inlay handle…oh, it would have to be in cream or ivory, then it would go with anything…(sigh)There I go…waffling again…!! Tsk!

    Think I\’ll just stick with a bonnet or hat, rather than having something like a parasol to carry around with me all day. A ticule to put my fan, money and phone in is all I need…better get designing…!!!

    September 23, 2009 5:02 pm

    Bran…it\’s just a case of clicking on the different effects and things to see what they do…I sometimes like to tilt my photos, but would love it if you could overlap them too…just like real pics laid out on the table. I also like decent margins around the photos if I place the at left or right.Debs…Rachel had her chemise and stays on…I haven\’t made mine yet. To be really period correct, you would have to go without knickers! Can you believe that when drawers were first introduced (they were actually two seperate legs) they were looked upon as being \’shocking\’ and \’fast\’…(Shock! Horror!! Ye hussey!!) A petticoat would also have been worn over these. So it would be chemise (shift), stays, petticoat, then dress.Of course, if you want to do the earlier muslin gown bit, you could leave off the stays, and just wear the chemise and petticoat…well, you wouldn\’t want people to see through your gown, would you…?!!

    With all this talk of more people joining us next year…and in costume, too, I think that my next blog will have to be about getting a costume together, with a run-down of some of the best websites to check out (well, my favourites, actually!)Or I could just do something totally different…!

    Well come down here for the Dickens Festival which last a few days in June. The costumes are much more extravagant, flouncy and full with big skirts that hide a multitude of sins. Or there is always the Sweeps Parade around Mayday, when the dress of the day is Chimney Sweeps, Morris Dancers, folk bands, Real Ale etc etc

    Lavinia has a beautiful "Dickens costume" especially tailored for a film of the period; we lived and worked near Rochester and the Dickens festival for many years and it never came out of the box because we were always to busy to go– still languishing there now and nowhere to wear it!

  35. Sandi permalink
    September 24, 2009 11:12 am

    Then it should be brought out for an airing, Bran…Lavinia should wear it for a photo shoot in your garden, you can post the pics on here and then we can all appreciate it. Languishing is not allowed! (I\’d be looking for excuses to wear something like that…if there are no excuses…invent one or two…!!)Watch it, Anne…you could end up with house guests again…for the Dickens Festival!!!

    Hmmm…shame someone can\’t invent a dressmakers form that is moulded to a person\’s shape, (including curve of back, slope of shoulders, etc.) then just folds up and packs away, small and lightweight, so it can be sent through the post. That way I would be able to make a costume for you and know that it would fit…unless you put on or lost weight! I\’m sure we will be able to come up with something between now and next September…and it will be an excuse to spend a few more weekends in Trowbridge…!!!

    I was thinking of going for coffee and cream or for a nice colour with a white dress (I was very impressed with the lady in the white dress and red spencer – stunning). The gloves are navy blue so it looks as though it\’ll be the latter. Did they do much in the way of embroidery back then. Maybe I could tart it up that way. You\’re not swearing Eileen (much). Thanks for asking. It\’s still being done, though I didn\’t look at it last week due to manic bonnet and stays sewing. It will be finished and I know it will take a long time, but I\’ll get there. Might do some later actually. By the way, if anybody sees me wearing a bonnet like that again, would you mind removing it and chucking it in the bin. I think I look ridiculous in it! I can usually wear hats but that one just looks plain stupid. Right then, must get out the tape measure and send on my numbers too. You\’re going to be so busy Sandi! 😉

    Makes a change from Pistols For Two (Georgette Heyer).Actually, I have a Pythonesque skit just pop into my head…Eileen and Rachel, all lady-like and demure, strolling along in the park on the arms of their beaux. Arrive at designated spot from opposite directions…beaux (seconds) help them out of their spencers and take their bonnets and parasols. They stand back-to-back and the referee counts three paces, they turn and…start bashing each other with their reticules…!!!

    Maybe we should think about filming this little sketch and putting it on YouTube…?Rachel, there was nothing wrong with your bonnet…you made it in a couple of days or so and did a good job. All it needs is a contrasting ribbon and bow, and feathers, etc., to finish it off and pretty it up a bit. (Those bonnets do look a bit Methody when they are plain.)Reading back on the comments, I think navy blue is ideal for a naval-themed costume…think of Captain Wentworth and Admiral Croft in Persuasion…add a bit of gold lace (braid) to the spencer or bonnet or reticule…! Navy blue and cream…very stylish. Coffee and cream…very stylish. For more on costumes and colours: http://www.janeausten.co.uk/magazine/index.ihtml

Am starting there this monday and they have only just dropped it on me that I shall be driving the hire car, not too happy about that. It will take 4 hours driving to get there on the monday, drive to the jobs there for 12/14 hour shifts and having to get up at 5 in the mornings and then home again on friday, for the next 3 weeks.

    No, thank heavens! I think it was last year, sometime, when I was having lunch at Fresh To Go (now Gregg\’s), and the front tooth on my plate (false choppers) broke off and dropped onto my plate (the one my food was on!) A friend, who works there, wondered what the heck I was laughing at…so I grinned at her. When I posted a pic of me on here, someone called me Countess Gapula, and I was like that for about two weeks, until I got the darned thing repaired.
