GBACG Tissot Bustle Picnic

Yesterday I had a very lovely time at the Greater Bay Area Costumer’s Guild Tissot Bustle Picnic, held at Ardenwood Historic Farm in Fremont, CA.

I wore my dress with a pouch made from matching fabric, a parasol from Angelic Pretty, and a top hat made by Triple Fortune. I ran out of time to make a matching bonnet, but I have the black straw base started at least!

ImageThere were many beautiful outfits at the picnic. (Click on the link to view lots of ruffles and colors!)

There were lots of people wearing blue.

ImageDid you spot the twins? (They actually aren’t related).

ImageA number of ladies wore pastels.


Including Kim and her beau.

ImageAnd this pair of charming dresses.

ImageI was part of the group of prints.


And there were striped ladies.

ImageAs part of the picnic we took a tour of the Patterson House. Here’s Natalie in front of the mansion.

ImageA group of us were wearing Tavistock boots from American Duchess and felt naughty!

ImageOf course, who could forget the gentlemen?


The rest of the photos, including those taken inside Patterson House, are located at my Flickr:
