Apron-Wearing WIFD Day Two or is it Merry Christmas?!
Today we woke up to winter! We have cold temperatures and snow! I decided to dress warmly, thinking I would not need to go out of the house, but I was wrong. With the road conditions being perfect for all kinds of accidents, I needed to do a bit of driving. I was already dressed for the day, before realizing I was going to have to go outside in this stuff.
I am wearing my my S&S Romantic Dress that I made from embroidered linen/cotton nearly two years ago. I have my cotton, half petticoat underneath to help keep me warm. Olivia is wearing her S&S Girls' Regency Dress made out of swiss dot cotton, that's not very swiss ;). It was her Easter Dress 1.5 years ago. We are both wearing Edwardian aprons made from the S&S Patterns They are both made from cotton and most enjoyable to wear and clean. :) Yes, I wore my apron, with my dress, out of the house to do my errands. I was nice and warm. :D
I don't typically wear my hair down, especially when I am working with food, but since I was going out in the snow and cold, and I wanted to wear my warm snugly hat, to stay warm, I needed more of my hair down, than up.
Here are a couple more pictures of Olivia, working with the grain we are grinding for our bread.
I hope you all are warmly, tucked away, in your homes. :)
