Well I got my pet en l'air all finished and had a lovely time wearing it yesterday! Both [personal profile] robinsnest and [personal profile] mandie_rw did their write ups here and here, so I won't rehash everything. The original plan had been to have a Pre-Raphaelite picnic out at Valley Forge, but that fell through. And with the on and off rain throughout the day it's just as well we didn't!

I'm very happy with my pet, and only have a couple small tweaks to make. The stomacher needs to be shortened, because it's too long for my taste, and I need to shorten the shoulder straps. But those are both fairly easy to do!

I wore the pet with my faux taffeta petticoat, silk gauze cap, silk gauze bonnet, and silk pinball, which is actually made with scraps from two of my New Castle plaids. It was on the chillier side, so I also pulled out my old linen mitts, which are brown linen lined with purple silk noil, and a square of cotton lawn that will be hemmed at some point and become a legit kerchief. Shoes are AD Dunmores, and some day I'll decide what color I want to dye them.
