Here are some pics from the tea today. It turned out to be a fun event. I really enjoyed having B there. Even though we didn’t spend the whole time together (having different duties) it was fun to have her be a part of it.
My jacket turned out well I think. It definitely needs more trim but I was happy to be able to wear it today and still get a good night’s sleep! The hat is my new felt hat from Williamsburg. I didn’t have time to trim it properly so B and I just stuck some feathers and cockades on it. Worked pretty well…
B turned out cute, if I do say so myself. Of course the cap and apron from Tina helped a lot. :>
Oh yes, I wore a new bum roll today. It was my experimental stuffed stocking. I cut off one leg of a pair of tights, filled it with fiberfill and safety pinned it close with ribbons at each end. It worked pretty well, a bit slippery before I got my petticoats on but no one would guess it’s not “correct”. :> It will definitely work until I can get around to amking a proper one in that style.
