Mother Daughter Fashion Show

By the way, a little bird mentioned there may be a Mother/Daughter fashion show of the late 1800s-early 1900s.  This may occur around Mothers Day 2015.  This is being talked about within the Ardenwood Foundation group.  The Foundation helps the Patterson House complete projects that need to be done and need to be paid for.  So my guess is this will be a fund raiser for a project.

Also, there will be another Murder Mystery Dinner September 13!  Totally different story that the August dinner.

This morning I woke up thinking.....should I add pleats to the bottom of Jen's Bustle dress or not.  After going back and forth on the idea I decided I would make the overskirt/bustle before making the final decision on the pleats.  Then we will see what the "look" is.  I can't put the pleats on until Jen does a fitting anyhow.

And I have to make a mockup of the bodice before she comes down for a fitting.....   Those will be the next projects.


  1. Pleats sound fun! When do I need to schedule a fitting?
