This other post goes into detail about what I made for him (and what I ran out of time to make, and bought instead....). I will say that boy clothes are pretty different from dressmaking...!
Two whole outfits of course meant that I had almost no time to sew for myself; certainly no time for a new dress. I did sneak in some new accessories for myself though: a new bonnet (as my other late '30s is so very christmas-y!), a new, lighter-weight chemisette, and a day cap.
|Shocking behavior! This picture amuses me greatly.|
|Mind your ginger ale can...oh wait, too late. Too busy gazing into each others' eyes, etc.|
Not for all that long, though. I promise we really aren't that horrible to be around most of the time!

Not the best day for a picnic, really! Of course the next day was lovely, and it even cleared up nicely in the evening. Which was good, for pre-dinner photo ops! I had zero new things for dinner so I didn't bother to get many posed pictures, and I was almost jealous of everyone else's big sleeves and hair! Almost. ;)
In addition to the dining room, we also had access to a couple of sitting rooms on the ground floor, where we had our appetizers and socialized before dinner proper.
|And tell me this doesn't look like you've walked into a ghostly party... "Welcome. Join us...forever." etc etc|
But it was a wonderful event, which we hope to repeat in some form next year. The Inn was very welcoming to us, and they make it very easy to have an event there. So I think we will!
