Dinner At Rosings- Sample Shawl
When imagining the colors for the Lady Catherine de Bourgh Regency Edition colors I wondered what it would be like to spend an evening at Rosings Park. Perhaps I would have to spend the evening listening to Mr. Collins drone on about how expensive the glazing was. More importantly would I be able to keep my wits about me while in the intimidating presence of Lady Catherine. Honestly, I think I might just try to avoid the whole thing by grabbing my shawl and going for a walk.
I absolutely love the look of Regency period shawls and when looking back on many of the painted images, prints, and even historical pieces in museums I love the fact that each one is so long that it nearly touches the floor. And I knew wanted this shawl to reflect the style of those period shawls yet still feel modern at the same time.
This particular shawl has a shallow crescent shape giving you just enough to cover your shoulders while at the same time giving you the length of its historical counterpart. And I think that Lady Catherine herself would approve of this shawl.
