Fort Fred 2018

We went to the Fort Frederick Market Fair at the end of April. Last year, it was brutally hot. Thankfully, this year the weather was much more pleasant. There was some chance of rain, but it held off the entire time we were there.

Mike and I began the day by taking a few photos in the shadow of the fort. I wore a printed linen jacket that I made several years ago, but had not brought out to an event in a while. I accessorized with a necklace and earrings from my Etsy shop.

Fort Fred is really all about the awesome shopping. We started at 96 District Fabrics.

Without fail, Mike takes a photo of this stocking display every single year!

Next we went to Fashions Revisited. Here is Taylor shopping for patterns.

It didn’t actually look that stormy; I upped the contrast in this photo.

Ashley did an amazing job on her KCI jacket. She digitized the embroidery patterns herself!

I’m glad folks were able to bring their kids along to the fair! I’ve been trying to host more family-friendly events lately.

This bread and cheese were scrumptious!

Here are my purchases. A bonnet and fan from Fashions Revisited, an apron from Silly Sisters, linen thread from Burnley and Trowbridge, and the Larkin and Smith English Gown pattern from Wm. Booth, Draper.
