1630s Jacket and Skirt
We drove and, then waited in the freezing cold for 3hrs, then, for 3 more hours, with a cute, enormous hat I marched through billion mile an hour winds. It was fun.
The dress was made in September for a lovely event by the Colonial Dames of America, which was so fun. It is a 1630s ensamble, the jacket is patterned from one at the V&A, and hand embroidered with wool and cotton threads. The skirt is wool, too. The cap it made from linen, all hand sewn(yay). So, pictures:

|Those, charming rosy cheeks, owe themselves to wind burn.|
