She's ok, we think we'll keep her.
Of course, if she was going to roll with me, she needed some 18th century clothing...and quick! Because her first event was when she was just over a month old, at the end of October.
We did quickie projects out of linen I already had on hand, with flash-fast patterns drafted with a little help from Sharon Burnston's fabulous website. If you need 18th century infant clothes, check out her site! Free patterns and all the research you could want.
That said--we had to fudge because I didn't have time to do a full baby linen set. Instead, Baby E got a long shirt (fudge alert--did this instead of the shorter shirt and separate petticoat), a cap, and a bedgown.
Here she is wearing the shirt and cap:
Think she might be trying to gnaw on my mother's arm because she knows we fudged her outfit? Nah, probably just hungry. Again.
Yeah, that's it. Little imp.
