Australian Costumers Guild "picnic"
We planned a lovely picnic in Parramatta park but as rain and storms were on the forecast for the weekend, we moved the picnic to Linnwood, see link on sidebar. We had 9 guests for a "tour" and indoor picnic lunch and it was very nice to put faces to forum names at last. I chose to wear (carefully) a vintage Victorian/Edwardian nightgown and made a broderie anglaise sleep bonnet to go with it. I carried a vintage china candlestick (think wee willie winkie!) to complete the look. Here is a photo taken on the day, I must comment on how tired I look, must have been those 2am sessions finishing the Springtime for Hitler costumes, see below, catching up.
