One of the first projects that the two summer interns were given was to make a summer accessory that the Milliner would have sold in her shop. I am pleased to report that The Margaret Hunter Millinery Shop now has a lovely summer cape floating around!
I’ve updated The Mended Soul so that you can see all the projects I’ve started working on during my summer internship at Colonial Williamsburg!
A note about this gown: I am so fortunate to be able to wear this amazingly beautiful gown made by the amazingly talented seamstresses from the Margaret Hunter Millinery Shop at CW.
It’s taken me a few minutes to calm down enough to see the keyboard. Currently over at The Tudor Tailor facebook page there is a folder entitled The Tudor Child and a poll that accompanies the photos. Ten minutes later I am still smiling so hard it hurts. It was an absolute honour to have interned with the Tudor Tailor and to have assisted with this momentous project. I am thankful for every moment Ninya and Jane allowed me to work alongside them.
I’m still a bit teary eyed over seeing some of the pieces I created on the potential covers of the new book.
"Intern Lyze gets up close and personal with one of the Tudor Tailor’s favourite sources of costume information. Photographing the effigy of Mattathia St Paul who died aged nearly 2, depicted on her parent’s monument of 1613 in St. Lawrence’s Church, Snarford, Lincolnshire"
;D See! I’m not dead!
I am so excited to tell my friends that I have been accepted as an intern with The Margaret Hunter Millinery Shop at Colonial Williamsburg! Thank you to everyone who has been supportive of this dream!
