After looking at how insane some historic patriotic dresses looked, decided to add onto the one I had! I covered a parasol & created a new handle for it. You can't see it in this picture, but it has a lace top & lovely red/white/blue cockade on it. Next I added the red & white striped fabric to the star fabric drape I already had. Then I just had to rework the hat a bit & make several cockades for the dress.
My musings wander from earth to sky.
