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.

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.

Aimee, that was me in the other plaid dress. I have some nice photos of you too. When I have my blog written up about Dickens, they’ll be in there.
Nice to meet you.

Awesome, Val! Nice to meet you, too! It was lovely to meet another appreciator of vibrant pink plaid! haha!

As someone who tats, I can tell you that that isn’t tatting. It looks like crochet to me, but I don’t crochet, so I can’t say for sure.

Hi Matthew, I don’t remember what it was. She both tatted and crocheted, so I assume it could be either.

It was so nice seeing yooooou~
I realized as I walked out I didn’t get any pics with you ;_;

Mi, yeah I should have taken more photos with all of you!!
