A few days after I finished my “Borgia dress” it was time for it’s first outing – To the yearly medieval fair in Söderköping.
This year I had a hard time deciding whether or not I should go, and if I did, then in what way would I attend.
Because of the new baby…
The first thing I needed to decide was If I should go at all, and should I then take him with me?
And If I took him, should I breastfeed or give him the bottle (this is the million dollar question when it comes to clothing decision), and would it be better to wear something old and easy to wash (because, baby spit) instead of my new princess gown?
I had three dresses that I could wear to the event:
1. Italian renaissance
Difficult to wash and thous breastfeed in
2. Medieval Cote
Comfortable and opportunity to wear a whimple
Perfect for the Fairs time period
Easy to breastfeed in
Well tested and trusted
Thick wool = super hot
Difficult to wash
Worn a lot
3. Tudor PeasantPros:
Easy to wear
Easy to wash and to breastfeed in
Simple on the verge to boring
In the end the choosing was made easy by my boyfriend insisting he take the baby for the day and I go alone (well not alone, my sister was to come to).
This was to be the longest time away from Charlie I ever been, so lets just say I was les then focused when dressing in my gown (New Borgia gown for the win, because – New dress :-)) and kissing my boys goodbye.
The familiar scenery of Söderköping.
We meet up with the dance team and participated in the show (with only a handful of on-lookers)
I really need to do something about that neckline (or work a bit more on my posture)…
Ha ha, love this picture.
Some people do take the dancing a lot more serious 😀
After the dance recital me and my sister took a walk around the market.
We also took a few minutes to take some pictures by the big church (while trying our best to ignore the other visitors taking our picture).
Before heading hoe we did a pit-stop at the fabulous fabric store, where I got lots and lots of cute baby fabrics.
