Thank you :) I'm hoping to create a cotton summer dress 1850's style before August ;)

that ensemble is fabulous!

I am curious about the parasol. How did you make it or where did you get the frame?

Well you could take an antique or vintage parasol in serious need of a refurb, or when in need of time and on your first go... do as I do and buy a cheap childrens umbrella and use the original cover as a pattern.
