If I find any more pictures later I'll update, but for now you just get three.
|You can't see the other two hundred people milling around on the ship, just behind the person with the camera...|

The spencer's of red linen, lined in lightweight cotton (the sleeves are only halfway lined, to the elbow, and is hand sewn. The trim's some looped rayon braid from my Stash, and that was all I had, or I'd have trimmed the collar and sleeves too. It proved to be perfect sunblock, which was the intention, and I wasn't any warmer than I'd have been without it (I'm a big fan of covering up in the summer sun, can you tell?).
The bonnet's a buckram frame covered in red silk satin, underneath the brim is covered in a dark cream silk shantung, and is trimmed in bias strips of striped silk satin. And white ostrich drabs. Can't forget the ostrich. The ties are strips of green and red shot silk taffeta, made extra long to cross under the chin and tie on top of the bonnet. I was afraid that green might tip it over into too Christmassy, but anything else I had would've been too matchy. The green makes a nice contrast, so I'm glad I listened to my bonnety instincts!
