Taking in the exploits of an old friend

One of my guilty pleasures is the Sharpe's series of books by Bernard Cornwell. For the most part, they're crackin' good reads. I've also decided to rekindle my books on disc habit since I have a long drive to work, and Sharpe's Havoc happened to be handy at the library.

I can relate to the long drive...
I drive 120 miles roundtrip to go into work.

My daughter took my picture on her digital camera after school yesterday and uploaded it for me. So here I am, in a farb outfit... Last night I spent cutting the pattern for the 1865 dress I'm attempting to sew by hand. Now, I understood why women in the 1860's only had one or two dresses!

Gosh -- you're more than double of my drive, but I still have to wind through Raleigh traffic to get there! :-P

The photo looks great -- I'm not an expert on civilian dresses, but you don't seem to be way off the mark at all! :-)

Thanks! The outfit is 100% cotton but it's farb fashion because it's not sewn by hand.
