Mourning Glory, or, She Stopped Being Amused.

She's here! After weeks, nay, months of effort from me (fiddly bits/crinoline construction/jacket) and mum (dressmaking), 'Queen Victoria' has finally been set sail in all her black be-taffetared misery.
Far from miserable though, was the launch party- or rather, the reception QV got at her first outing, to the Norfolk Lacemakers society, meeting at Norwich City College on Saturday.

Here's a couple more photos, with thanks to Anne, Lady Prince-Smith, for allowing the use of her beautiful home Morton Hall, and thanks to my friend and web site designer Cassie Tillet for taking the pictures.
Also not forgetting the patient and photogenic Honey !
Many more photos are available on my QueenieLives Facebook page:
