I had planned to make a white Victorian summer bustle, but alas, life happened, so instead I wore my early 19th century 'Strawberry Picking' Regency dress (made a few years ago for Regency Pumpkin Tea), loosely based on the S&S Regency gown pattern, paired with a chemisette my mother made, a straw bonnet I purchased from my friend Maggie, and my American Duchess 'Hartfield' boots!
Lots of delicious summer picnic food including fruit, tea sandwiches, cheese, salami, pasta salads, fried chicken, and much more, plus lots of drinks - our hostess even made a pretty pink cake that ended up crashing on itself, that was ABSOLUTELY delicious! Much fun was had by all, especially when it came to archery.
My HB had to remind me how to hold and shoot the bow & arrows, lol:

This pretty much sums up how much fun we had: my friend from learningtocostume is taking a turn at archery here, and you can see us all laughing and laughing! There were a lot of archery shenanigans that day.
