Victorian Days

My little babies, ready for school, Victorian style!
This was how they went to school on Friday - the whole school, in fact...staff too - and everyone looked wonderful! There were chimney sweeps, governesses and chambermaids aplenty.
I didn't realise how difficult a mop cap could be to make....but, oh, I learned! The first attempt was just big enough for my daughter's doll; the second would have a fitted a space-hopper...but I just about got there in the end! The pinnies were a doddle in comparison.

Right now, it's Oliver Twist crazy in these 'ere parts!
