Millinery for “Mumford”

Next weekend is the Civil War event at the Genesee Country Village and Museum. That means this week is a crush week to be ready to set up the Millinery Shop and get myself into 1860s dress. Here are the millinery pieces i will be bringing to the event. I will be adding to this post as I finish pieces this week. 

In the spring, the plan had been to make a piece each week for the two events at GCVM, the 1812 and the Civil War event. Welo, that went out the window thanks to my organs. The new plan is to make as many of the oieces on the plan list as possible. 

The list?
