Top Hats and Tiaras Tea and a New Purse!

Earlier this month the guild gathered for tea at the Chocolate Angel in Richardson.  Everyone wore their finest top hat or tiara, and we had a wonderful time!

The food and tea were delicious.  I really love the tiny sandwiches.  I know how much work that is, but I wish I could have this kind of tea every day!

I wore the same dress I made for last year's Picnic with the Pixies, but I tried a high bun hairstyle and made a new purse.
Top Hats and Tiaras 2014 - Purse
It's made from Butterick 3485, an out of print pattern.  Basically it's a large lined circle with pairs of buttonholes worked around the edge.  Everything came from my stash: a gray and sliver brocade, silver silk dupioni, silver ribbon, and two I-only-have-one-of-these buttons.  Sewing and cutting the buttonholes took the longest, but even so I managed to make this the morning of the event and it only took a couple interrupted hours.  It's smallish, but large enough to hold my phone, keys, cash, ID, and some other small necessities.  Plus it matched my outfit perfectly!

Thank you! Tea is fun! I'll take any excuse to go, or even no excuse at all. :)

Yes, you, your crown, your dress, and your bag were lovely! Lesa
