Making up



I love this costume card. The colours are just right and I like to see the costumes that people wore in the different regions of France a hundred years ago. This one is entitled “Peace is made”. Well, the husband looks pleased with himself at least…

The rest I can’t translate as it is in ‘patois’ – the ‘dialect’ of the region.

Now people grow big.

They are more comfortable:)

A Lady's Life: Yes, they would have needed to move around in them.

Jackie: the hat reminded me of the traditional Welsh hats.

Walk in the Woods: Thank you.
