Pioneer Spirit

Today I made a costume for Cissy in sort of Victorian pioneer style - plaid, long full skirt, fitted bodice, even darts at the elbow! It made me realise how forgiving today's clothes are by comparison.

Anyway, she looks lovely in it, and I am using some of my grandmother's lace to trim it, from a box I have had for ten years and Aunt Jean probably fifty years before that. Good to be able to use it, and it is very pretty, an edging of roses.
