Seeing first-hand the type of clothing I've been trying to sew is really cool and such a help.
A descendant of the original owner actually wore the dress a few years ago for her own wedding.
Eileen Donan also had two late 18th century gowns on display, but of course, no photography.
Moving on, at the Highlander museum in Stirling castle there were three military jackets and a drummer boy's coat from the mid 19th century. I took pictures until I was caught.
Just gorgeous! You can see replicas of this jacket in the Sharpe TV saga(As much as I adore the historical uniforms in the Sharpe chronicles, some of the content is decidedly mature)
Someday my brothers will have such jackets.
Only perhaps not with such nice buttons....
