I made the fatal error of underestimating the heat index this weekend and wound up with an IV on a cot between a wool-clad confederate soldier and a severely dehydrated woman in a hoop-skirt. Let’s just say the reenactment of the battle of Bull Run/Manassas may have had its own list of casualties. (ELECTROLYTES, PEOPLE.) To be on the safe side, I confess that I have vowed to restrict my wardrobe to light dresses and miniskirts like this one — no hoops — until the climate agrees to be more reasonable. And while we’re on the topic of confessions…sincerest apologies to the EMT to whom I was perhaps unnecessarily sarcastic when he asked if the calico bonnet was mine. I blame the heat stroke.
((I love the scalloped edges & cut-out details! Also, I iron about as often as I attend Civil War reenactments — which, to date since my birth, is twice.))
