New Regency, first outing

Well, it's not done, but it's been worn! To the annual Pumpkin Tea a friend has, where there's lots of great food, tasty tea, pretty dresses, and better company! We had good weather, too, unseasonably mild, which made for some nice photos.

Due to a series of Unfortunate Events, I didn't end up being able to finish the spencer or the bonnet - was hoping I'd be able to wear at least one of the two, but it didn't work out. So I borrowed a hat (that ended up matching my outfit very well; I was tempted to smuggle it out in my bag...but she knows me too well and kept an eye on me!) and went in my shirt-sleeves. Very glad it wasn't cold...

How I felt about my very-unfinished outfit!
Other people did seem to actually actively like it, though, so I guess that's good! And I do like the jumper style, because it's kind of cute, if more informal than I had planned to be!

Just a few pictures - because, well, it's new, but it's a plain jumper, how many detail shots do you really need. But there was a hill, so I felt the need to run down it as usual, so you get a picture of that too.

And the fabulousness of the other ladies at the tea...

  1. I love the way your skirt looks like it moves while you're running down the hill - fwoosh, fwoosh!

    1. Hee, thank you - I love it, too! Totally accidental; bought it for 18thc in an online super-sale, but it turned out to be way too drapey for that. But perfect for Regency!
