Picture Posts are Coming!

I feel so bad for not being able to post pretty pictures for you all... Life is still pretty crazy, and to top it all off, my camera finally bit the dust! But I thought I could tease you with a couple of pictures I didn't take so you know that I actually am still sewing and making things!

I've been hired to help finish up work on the recreation of George Washington's tent. You can read more about this important project at its Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/FirstOvalOffice) and follow our progress via webcam (http://www.history.org/webcams/tentmaker.cfm).

Accordingly, I made up a simple wool gown to work in. Nothing fancy, just a fitted (en fourreau) back gown with matching petticoat. More later!



In the realm of pretty things, I made a new outfit to wear to a Regency wedding of some dear friends this past weekend. No pictures of that yet, but I did score a beautiful antique bonnet veil to wear with it!

How lovely! Where did you get the veil?
