Sorry for not posting pictures of my corset and my pleated shorts. I have had both done for a week or two, but with graduation and fair approaching, I have been very busy lately. I have pictures of them both, I just need to upload them. I do have, however, a picture of my new hat I made. I did end up finding a straw hat frame I liked, so I bought three of them. I've only decorated one so far. See what you think:
I calculated the cost of it all and it came to around five dollars for this hat. Sounds good to me! I want to get one or two more to decorate. One will be covered plain black with maybe a black or muted ribbon for trim (for funerals and such), one will be white with loads of ostrich feathers, one will be straw with white tulle and either white or yellow flowers or a mix, I'm not quite sure yet.
I wore my pictured outfit out in public to church the other morning and people seemed to like it. I don't think I scared any little kids or anything. :) I also wore my outfit to Charlton Park's Old Fashioned Fourth of July, although their idea of old fashioned isn't as old as mine. ;)
Anyways, just a quick post to let you all know I'm still here. I'll try to get the pictures of my corset and pleated shorts up in the next day or so. Hope your summer is going well and Happy Independence day!
