Horseless Carriages & A Victorian Connection…


WEB Horseless 1Wouldn’t think they would have much to do with one another, but on a fine Spring day in 2009, these prized beauties met up with the members and friends of Somewhere in Time, Unlimited to participate in the “Quilted Tulip” up in LaConner, Washington.

WEB P076Now, SITU has been doing historical costuming for a long while as a social group.  Most favorite is probably the Victorian era or the Edwardian period.  So, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that the group had co-hosted with the docents and management of the famous Quilt Museum, an afternoon tea.  Refreshments were free to the public with the paid entry to view the museum which just “happens” to be a Victorian home!

WEB Horseless 3Ah, enter the carriages.  The owners of these fine specimens were invited to come out and get all gussied up in their finery and join in the fun.  Mission accomplished!  These ladies and gents did a wonderful job of recreating historical attire, complete with hats.  Their cars weren’t bad either….(wink)

WEB P040So, you have a soft-spot for Victorian clothing or dressing up in Victorian dress?  Come along.  SITU holds a number of Events and Dress-up Opportunities which cross a wide array of eras, including Victorian/Edwardian. 

We even hold workshops to help you learn how to put together an outfit, whether sewn or thrifted.

 Men are invited to participate in our Events as well.  This is not a “Ladies Only” sort of social group!  Lady Victoria will also give you sage advice on how to find suitable gentlemen’s attire for whatever Event or Dress-up Opportunity is in store.

WEB P072Contact Lady Victoria directly from the SITU site to find out more about the various eras we costume.  Be sure to visit our website’s Prior Events to see more photos of this particular Event.  We would love to have you come along for any of our Events or Dress-up Opportunities during the year.

These may include centennial celebrations, parades, parties, Kirkland Concours, murder mystery outings – virtually anything that  is centered around planes, train, cars and boats, provided we can put a historical spin on things!

Come, join the fun. You’d be surprised how much joy you will find…
