The 7th Annual Pittock Mansion Picnic

It is finally the summer here in the Pacific Northwest which means for us period reenactors that it's time for all the fabulous outings!

For The Oregon Regency Society, we have our annual picnic event at one of the most beautiful places to visit for free in Portland, Oregon.  

The Pittock Mansion was home to Portland pioneers Henry and Georgiana Pittock from 1914 to 1919. During the late 1800s and the early 1900s, their lives and work paralleled the growth of Portland from a small Northwest town site to a thriving city with a quarter million population. With its eclectic architectural design and richly decorated interior, including family artifacts, the Pittock Mansion stands today as a living memorial of this family’s contributions to the blossoming of Portland and its people.

Though it does cost to tour inside the mansion, the grounds are equally as beautiful as the interior.  The view alone is enough to take your breath away!

Here is where we will set the setting for the ORS picnic.  Everyone will be dressed to the nines in their summer finery in which they will be merry, enjoying the beautiful weather and each others company.

Now off to work for me, I've got a petticoat to finish for myself and a little girls dress in the works.

Pictures soon to come and share with the intrawebs!

Some time

4th of July has passed and it's time to get back in the groove of sewing again.

I've been working on the overdress and underdress combo. It's time for me to crush it!!! Hehehe

Pictures soon to come!  Can't believe it's been a little over year and a half of Regency fun for me.

Also I've finally took a few pictures of the cotton floral block print dress.  Enjoy!!
