Ready for the ball - Oamaru 2016 by MartynCollings
Ready for the ball - Oamaru 2016
My niece Lily and I, ready for the Oamaru Steampunk Ball 2016 (New Zealand)
A fantastic night was had by all.

My waistcoat and overcoat were both made by myself, I'm very happy with the outcome.
I was sewing on the buttons the eve of our departure for Oamaru!
