I mentioned in my last post that I'd spent most of the previous challenge making a new bustle dress for my Mom. She wore it to the Victorian Day at Los Encinos Adobe, and had a ball.
Unfortunately, I didn't take any detail shots before the rear camera on my tablet decided to die (again) so I only have these full views. The Fabric is white cotton with a navy woven stripe and it's accented with blue moire ribbon. The bonnet is actually a 20's-style straw cloche cleverly trimmed with more blue ribbon (and I will eventually want it back, Mom.)
Mom and Mr. G
Some of my friends from my reenactment group came too. Does the dress on the right look familiar? *wink*
All in all, a lovely afternoon!
