The autumn dance was soon and Josephine was so excited to go.
A shorter in length party dress would be so pretty and she wanted to look her best for such an occasion. Josephine most definitely wanted something with grass flowers. Grass flowers were all the rage; everyone would be wearing them.
With these ideas in mind she set out to the forest to find her dress and came upon one later that day. Around the waist a brocade of small rust and purple chrysanthemums with blackberry and huckleberry beads. Fading hydrangea blossoms made up the bodice and a delicate pansy jewel button dotted the front.
She was set.
