Subject: RE: How much gear do you have?

Message Detail:
I have one basic dress, light blue polished cotton. I dress it up or down depending on my impression. I put on a peach apron, a sun bonnet, roll up my sleeves, and I am doing chores. A white apron, white day cap, and white removable collar make it a nurses's uniform. To make it a day dress, I add a hoop (blush), the white collar, a watch penant, a simple ring, and a Mary Stewart bonnet. For nighttime formal ware, I add fancier jewelry and wear a ring of flowers on my hear.

The gear is adding up for my Christian Commission station which includes a fly, furniture, storage boxes, and books, books, books.
