The other reason I went was to introduce myself to the official town cryer for Barrie whose outfit I will be making in the near future. I felt it was necessary to see him in action as he had a proclamation as part of the ceremony. I am very excited to take on this project of re-creating a period costume consisting of the jacket, waistcoat and poet shirt!
It will most definitely make me use my brain as my specialty is ladies evening wear and not men's wear or costume design...... So if anyone has any advice they would like to share please leave a comment it will be greatly appreciated.
