Thank you everyone for your kind words about my grandpa. I really appreciate your thoughts and prayers.

Saturday was the Regency picnic. We had yummy treats and fun games in the most beautiful park with gorgeous stonework. There was even a wedding going on! 

Just about everything I wore was new. My gown is completely sewn by hand, down to the corded ruffle on the skirt. I haven't done a 100% hand sewn gown in a while, and it was refreshing. The bonnet was reworked and retrimmed, and completed with a scalloped veil. I finally got around to covering one of my antique parasols, too. This one is probably late 19th-early 20th century. It will be getting some pinked trim at some point. 

I will let the pictures do the talking--they turned out gorgeous. Hard not to, with such a lovely setting. You can view the entire album on Flickr: http://www.flickr.com/photos/51732491@N02/sets/72157629787895175/

For some reason, whatever era you post about one of your finished costumes in, I feel the need to sew something of that period! ;)

What a great setting, and I looove your outfit! That fabric's so pretty; the stripe is subtle, but gives a nice depth. And the parasol! ...I'll stop gushing now, heh.

Sorry to hear about your grandfather. My the good memories you have of him help your heavy heart.

Beautiful gown! The accessories really make it look that extra bit of fantastic. I love seeing a well-accessorized period outfit.
