First Snow

Snow is a bit a novelty in the American South. Large quantities are quite rare; however, even the lightest dusting can bring excitement beyond words. Our mountaintops are always the first to spy the flurrying of the cherished sky crystals. And with the falling snow comes a quietness as the world seeks to stop and enjoy each etherial flake.

Our third photoshoot, featuring the lovely Hannah and a modified version of our Harvest Bustle gown, attempts to capture this moment- the first unexpected (and perhaps only) snow fall of the season.

Our Harvest Bustle Gown (c. 1880s) is shown over Corset, skirt supporter, and 2 ruffled petticoats
Pausing for a cup of tea
We modified our original design by replacing the tucked center front panel with 2 rows of pleated ruffles. I was afraid the skirt would be quite heavy but it was the opposite! The light, crisp cotton held its shape beautifully! A simple velvet ribbon serves as a belt.
A sighting
First snow of the season!
Glad she brought her caplet and muff!
