Back to the grind!

In April, I'm doing my first semi-immersion living history event.  I've been doing the "normal" reenacting every since I got into this hobby, but this event is already proving to be a challenge (a fun one) to be as authentic as possible.  My sewing list is growing abnormally large, and I can already tell I won't be able to do it all.  But that hasn't stopped me from musing over Victoria's new clothes.  :)  She's much bigger now and will be nearly three at the time of the event.  I have all of 3 and a half months to prepare them...(and that's not including my own clothes!)

Here is some of my inspiration...

How exciting! What event is this? I'd love to hear more about your impression, but I also know how it is to be crazy busy sewing for it. ;)

It's the "War At Home 1862" event at Pioneer Farms. It's at the end of April. Here's the website for it: http://www.txcwcivilian.org/pioneerfarms.html

Paula and I are going to go with a modest sewing business in town. But we haven't really fleshed it out yet. We're trying to do something simple so we don't overwhelm ourselves the first time. :)

Oh, that sounds like a good one, and a great impression for you two. The weather should be nice, too - and how awesome to not be in tents!

Those are delicious pictures you let us devour! I can't wait to see your version of all the beautiful things you will make!
