Mrs Miggins you shall go to the Ball

It was so much fun being the cracked Mrs Miggins and I'm so happy with how this costume turned out.  The only thing I'd like to change is the stays I wear underneath.   With my pink cable tie version, I still get a shelf for cameras, but the bodice is curved not flat. I don't think it's possible to get completely flat, unless my chest is under my neck. Though I'd like to get it closer to period.

Though I do work as a pillow


  1. Brilliant cosplay! Did you use pattern from janet arnold book?

  2. The stays pattern is from Hunnisett, and for the dress I used Period Impressions #420 a 1770 polonaise & petticoat.
