An Afternoon at the Beach

 Wading in Lake Michigan



It was a beautiful day that we had playing on the beach.  I only wish that our camera was more cooperative for most of my photo’s turned out fuzzy.

Here the girls are playing in their Regency Dresses.  The pattern is by Sense & Sensibility Patterns. 

Our daughter in the photo on the top left is wearing an 18th century shift under her bodice.  The shift pattern in Kannik’s Korner.  It is the Second Half of the 18th Century (1750-1800) English Style Shift (Chemise).  The bodice, pleated skirt, and the apron are patterns that I designed.

You can purchase the patterns through the companies mentioned.  The fabric can be purchased here.  Look on the side bar for more information.
