As I said in my previous post, I was going to wear the striped jacket to Fort Fred, but finally decided on the cranberry wool gown (after bringing both with me!), and was very glad I did. (Wore the petticoat I made to go with the jacket, so that's something. Ivory linen, handsewn, whatever.) I could have even used my cloak at some points during the day (it was in the car), but what's the fun if you can't show off your nice dress? All my pictures came out fairly dreadful, so these are from an accommodating friend and her photographer!
So here a few more shots of the cranberry wool's latest outing.
Seems I pinned the robings unevenly. Them's the breaks with a stomacher! :P
