At the beginning of May we had a small Victorian tea at the Smiths' house. There were only five ladies in attendance (though a couple of uncostumed husbands were hanging around). I chose not to take the children along this time, though there would have been plenty for them to do on the Smith farm.

It seemed wildly appropriate that the two hostesses wore tea gowns and the two visitors wore walking dresses. The fifth was not in costume. I finally got a chance to wear my 1886 navy and silver dress for something better than trick-or-treating.

Your dress is really smart looking. Pretty colors and so very 1880s too:)

Pretty dress! Late bustle has been on my wishlist for a while; I really enjoy that very smart, tailored style, and you're nailed it. :)

You look lovely! You got that late-bustle tailored style spot on! The hair looks good too. I love 1880s because the hair is so much easier than a lot of other eras, basically a high bun or a low bun, bangs of varying curliness optional.

Wow! The tea look so yummy, and your gown is perfect. I'm so glad you had the opportunity to wear it in such a setting.
