Felicity is busy working today!!!!!

Oh, how Felicity hated to help with housework! But when she did she wore a striped gown of hand-loomed cotton so she didn’t spoil her good clothes. Knot her kerchief around her neck, or simply tuck it into her bodice as colonial girls did. Tie her apron around her waist, and don’t forget her ruffled mob cap—a must for dusty chores!  She even has a sample of needlepoint!!!!

Victorian Play Date

Samantha dressed like a proper young lady even when she was playing. Her dress of blue and white check  had a big yoke and crisp white cuffs. The ruffly play pinafore was supposed to keep the dress clean and the matching hairbow was supposed to stay tied even when she was climbing trees or chasing bratty Eddie Ryland.   She looks sooo....sweet!!!!
