Things are starting to feel more normal here.....I think the trauma of being uprooted is passing. Got good news last night...our neighbors dog was finally found....so a story with a happy ending!!!
I did get some sewing done....and so Lissie has a new night shift, lappet cap and mules.....What are those you ask. Sleepwear for girls and women were called night shifts....they were a fancier version of their shift. Lissie's has lace and ribbon. Girls wore hats ALL the time in Colonial America....even to sleep...and here is Lissie's matching Lappet Cap. It has long ears that wrap around her head and tie under her chin. And on her feet she wears leather mules....or slip on slippers. I hand made these, and they were easier then I thought they would be...so will be trying my hand at more shoes.
