Cygnus - a la Jane Austen

A few eagle-eyed readers noticed that the dress I was wearing in Williamsburg was, indeed, the dress I sewed for myself just the week before.

Before we left, I got the brilliant idea to do a photo shoot in Virginia for Cygnus, my newest cardigan design. Naturally, it was just perfect with the white dress... and as we walked around Williamsburg, I knew that I had to do some photos there.
Strolling through the Governor's garden
 It really was the perfect combo ofoutfit and backdrop...
If only that was my home....
 Then we came across the hat at a Williamsburg shop....
Just waiting for Mr. Darcy...
The only downside is the weather
Off to Londontowne!
 It was insanely hot and I really was melting...

Praying for A/C
 Which is why the pictures are black and white... I am beet red when they are in colour!

You fit right in with the southern belle lifestyle.

You just needed a little reed fan so you could fan yourself cool!

Lovely cardi pattern ... and when combined with the dress it really looks like you've got a big event planned!

It looks like a historic outfit at first glance, you just needed white gloves to complete the impression. Lovely photo's

The dress, the cardigan, the hat...all perfect for your photo shoot in Williamsburg. You look like a southern belle! Too bad it was so uncomfortably hot.

Your dress and the photos and you are very awesome! But I hate to disappoint you, but you'll have to wait for Mr. Darcy for quite a while. He's on his way to my place first, after a quick swim ... ;)

I would have to argue with elns...Mr. Darcy would be stopping here, given the opportunity.
I love the photos. Beautiful setting, beautiful pattern. Way to go! More close ups would have been even better. :)
