Here are a few pictures from today at Sewickley Cemetery. Today the weather was just lovely. It felt so good to be wearing a sheer silk bodice - I could feel the breeze passing through the sleeves to cool me off. I sat on a shady hillside for the afternoon sewing on a fancy silk apron.
This outfit consists of a gathered sheer silk bodice with full gathered sleeves that has a fitted half-high silk lining beneath, green-blue silk skirt with knife pleats, and black silk taffeta swiss waist with box pleated pinked ruching around the top and bottom edges. The swiss waist laces up the back. I'm holding my black moire silk covere parasol, an original that I recovered.
We enjoyed an 1860s travelling medicine show performance by the Mockingbird Theatre Company.
