Here’s the dress I spent a good part of two months working on—
(actually half the time was on the underpinnings of the dress)
We look serious because this is the 19th century, when no one smiled for photos 🙂
Nick Anderson is portraying John Bidwell, and I am a fictional lady reporter from San Francisco. I have given myself the name “Mrs. Letitia Norris.” I will be interviewing Major Bidwell on April 22 at 10 a.m. at the Chico Museum.
I made Nick’s shirt and vest too, so that he would always be ready to play John Bidwell for the Bidwell Mansion Association.
