When we were at Colonial Williamsburg a couple of weeks ago, we clearly found out that she needed some new pockets. Earlier this week I whipped some up. I pieced together some leftover pieces of fabric from an 18th century gown I had made for myself. She chose her favorite color for the accent, purple!
