Victorian Costumes

Each year, we take our three children to Rochester's Dickens' Festival. Not that they are really old enough to appreciate the works of Dickens, but they love the costumes, theparades, the Punch and Judy shows, the charity lucky dip stalls and, of course, the fun fair. This year, I decided to make them some simple costumes so that they could join in. They were filthy by the end of the day (far too many pale colours for three children under the age of 7), but they had a great time. The only low point of the day was when Purdey lost her hand-made sateen bonnet in a gust of wind! Never mind, it would be too small for her by the time next year's festival comes round anyway.
