On an early September evening in Orient, New York, revelers gathered to party in homage to William Shakespeare's comedy, "A Midsummer's Night Dream".
My sister, Jeanne, and her husband, Chris, attended the soirée. Costumes were de riguer. I created a hat to wear in the make-believe woodland. She purchased a long, silk, floral dress at the Times Vintage in Greenport. Taken in sum, she became a denizen of the forest for one night.

Chris is faun like with a twig wreath and
oyster shells on his ears.
Carol beginning the hat.
She is threading a curved needle.
You must have a curved needle for hat making.
We used pins and things
from Jeanne's collection of
Shirley Wedge jewelry.
We purchased life-like flora from
the Michael's emporium.
More possibilities for
the trimming of the hat.
The finished chapeau.
And I model it.
More party goers.
