picnic fun

I had a fabulous time at Kat's Victorian Picnic yesterday!

The day was not without it's hiccups (running late, loads of traffic, not eating enough, the brutality of 9 hours round-trip in the car) but the weather was nice, the food yummy, the company lovely & entertaining and my outfit so fun to wear! I'm so glad went!

I'm super pleased with the way the Picnic Dress came out. It was worth the frustration, alteration and hassle the dress caused me - the ruffles make me so happy! I need to adjust the bustle ties in the back a bit before CosCol but it's an easy fix. I didn't take many construction pics (not wanting to think too much about it at the time 'cause that made me not want to work on it!) but I'll try to write a decent write-up in the next week or so for you guys.

I can't wait to wear it again!

The rest of my photots from the day are on Flickr


  1. Those pictures kind of remind me of Daniel Deronda! ...Not that I like Daniel Deronda...but the costumes are kind of cool. =)


  2. Thanks Melody! I can't say I'm much of a fan of the story of Daniel Deronda but the BBC mini-series sure is pretty! It definitely influenced my hair and general styling...
