Everyone that I met in the Hawaii Civil War Roundtable was so kind and enthusiastic. The weather was really glorious and I was perfectly cool in my newly adapted teen sheer. My poor bonnet got a little banged up on the plane, though... But I think it's time to re-cover it anyway.
The Mission Houses Museum features a collection of c. 1820 buildings built and used by the Protestant missionaries who were in Hawaii from 1820-1863. No pictures were allowed inside, but we managed to get one sneaky one when our tour guide was in another room. ;-) I think next year, I should definitely have an 1820s dress to wear here!
And so... I'm madly stitching a matelasse petticoat for this weekend's event. It's literally seaside and even in the height of summer gets pretty chilly.
