In March, I’m heading to Belgium on a trip with my mom. As luck would have it, we will be there the same weekend as Gala Nocturna! I’ve wanted to go to this historical dark fantasy ball for several years and the planets have aligned and I’m going.
So now — What to wear!!!
Gala Nocturna always has a theme. This year is La Belle et La Bete — Beauty and The Beast, specifically referencing the film by Jean Cocteau.

I’ve opted to try a new historical period, the 1830s, for this. Nothing like trying something new when you don’t have a lot of time! I’ll be using Truly Victorian’s 1830s Romantic Era Dress as my pattern and I have an inspiration board on Pinterest.
Wish me luck — I’ve done the mockup and I’m ready to start cutting the real fabric. Eek!
