Yay! Bangs pulled back and hidden within the bonnet.
(Which lasted about 15 minutes)
Emily's skirt is made of the left over dress fabric from my dress (being worn at this event by my friend Caitlin). It features two very deep growth tucks which can easily be let out as Emily grows taller (any fading where the stitches were would be covered with some pretty black velvet ribbon or rouching). She also wears a full sleeved white cotton bodice (back hook and eye closure) covered by a large black cummerbund rounded at the top and pointed at the waist, topped by a black velvet jacket adorned with frog closures. Emily is wearing a crinoline petticoat, not a hoop.

Camp life - Jacket and Bonnet are nowhere to be found . . .
You can see the wide black cummerbund worn over the white cotton bodice.
Resting in the tent. (Have not abandonned the bangs entirely yet.) What I love about this picture is the the black and grey striped stocking peeking out from under her skirt. You can see the detail of Emily's white cotton bodice (back closure) and a few of her wooden toys.
