A Stroll In The Park…

Lately we’ve been busy getting ready to go to Tombstone but today we decided to take a small break and go for a picnic in the park. It was a bit on the warm and humid side, not the usual warm and dry weather that we get in Southern California so our sojourn was not for very long. 🙂

For a more “vintage” look…

It’s linen for me today. Here is my new linen suit, complete with Homburg hat and new shoes.

You readers might remember this dress, it’s based off an original dress c. 1879 – 1880 and is constructed of all printed cotton lawn, over dyed to match some taffeta I already had for the knife pleating at the hem. The embroidered part, was dyed to complement the remainder of the dress.*All the layers of the skirt are sewn together at the waist, each shirred panel is flat lined on cotton in a deeper shade of violet, so it would show through the sheer fashion fabric. The colors certainly stand out amidst the all the grass and green vegetation- it almost looks like Giverny. 🙂
