I'm guessing she had a hand in making every bit of clothing on display here.

Most, yes. The dancing master's outfit was made by the RNZ Ballet costumers, with more of an eye to it's suitability for dance than internal historical accuracy. The pet en l'aire (yellow over pink skirt) and the pink gown with the bows I forget the name of were both primarily made by Kelly, with a fair amount of advice and help from Leimomi.

Lovely, simply lovely.

Although ... maybe it's me, but my eyes keep being drawn back to the glasses, which sort of invalidate the entire look.

Eyeglasses are period! They were worn in the 18th century! And besides, I don't think it is fair to ask the models to give up the ability to see just to validate our ideas of how people should look!
