Dicken’s Fair 2014
I was very happy to have time to go up to Dicken’s Fair this year. I hadn’t been in many years and I find it very charming. I made a new dress for this year. This is my first mid-Victorian gown. I had this beautiful hot pink plaid in my stash for years in mind for a gown like this, so I was very excited to finally make it. I borrowed a hoop from my friend Annie and my friend Judy made my bonnet as a gift for me.
A picture showing the tatted collar my grandmother made which I added to my dress and the Love Token pin I made with my childrens’ initials on it.
The “Lover’s Eye” I made of my husband’s eye and the ribbon trim I made. You can read more about how I made my dress here.
Onward to Dicken’s Fair!
This is a violin playing lady tree!
This adorable lady had a fabric which matched mine!
Judy’s lovely black and white striped late Victorian!
We saw so many friends…!
I found Dr. Watson and Holmes! Dr. Watson gave me his calling card. Haha!
