Today, I got to wear my 1896 FIT Sailor Dress to the Nampa Depot Days! It was a fun day and the 101 degree heat truly wasn't that bad. I do believe I will have to wear white or some shade of white to all summer events...it really is cooling. Marilyn joined me there and we were 1890s Ladies! She wore an outfit I made quite a while ago that was inspired by the movie "An Ideal Husband". It is the bicycle outfit that Lady Gertrude Chiltern wore...I love that movie! My only issue, as always, was my feet. I am a flip flops or bare feet girl and wearing any sort of heels sends my feet into fits of apoplexy... But I am home now, shoes off, feet up and taking it easy!
My son, Cody, took these pictures for me. I think he did a really great job! Thank you son!
Inspiration dress: The Museum at FIT
The sun and the off white fabric...not good playmates. But the red did well!
Three petticoats were worn to get the correct support for the skirt!
Yes, I was really this tired!
Back to the pond at my parents' house I went for "sea side" photographs!
Need to get the boater straight!
Someone recently installed park benches around the pond! I think they knew I would need a spot to sit while wearing my dresses and high heeled shoes!
The shoes of doom. I truly don't ever, ever, ever want to wear these again!!
Marilyn and I with some of the beautiful cars at the Depot!
I hope you are all having a nice, cool, comfortable day my friends!!
