The Models have Tea

My darling daughter has collected a few of her friends who are willing to serve as models for me.  So, today, most of them converged on our home for tea.  My ulterior motive was to get their measurements to make sure I was making things that would fit.  They were also able to look through patterns and tell me what kind of looks they would like to model.
 Of course, they also had some fun with things already here:
Above, S is wearing Vernon's smoking jacket and Karl's fez. Quite the combo.  But he definitely needs a different shirt underneath.
All in all, much shortbread, scones and apple tart was consumed along with several pots of tea.  A grand time was had by all.


  1. Sounds like fun! I do like the smoking jacket, I have always wanted one!

    1. It was a lovely time. And the smoking jacket really isn't a difficult pattern. I believe it is from Folkwear.
