A day with Skinners Horse at Broadlands

I was invited by my friends at Skinners Horse to join them for their display at Broadlands House. My outfit was a conversion from my 1880s ballgown into a day dress (see earlier blog post). I did this by adding a chemisette to fill in the neckline and some tulle sleeves to the bodice. The weather here in England is changeable at the moment and true to form it turned into a hot day just as I had to wear four layers of clothing. In fact the weather was quite fitting for a re-creation of the 1st Bengal Lancers (Skinners Horse).
Thanks to Tiffany Parkinson for the photos

It's a beautiful conversion, and has inspired me to want a red dress!
