I am really glad this weekend is over. I have had to put sewing on hold pretty much all this week (though not planning as is evidenced by my last post...) so that I could get a bunch of prep work done for my church responsibility as Pioneer Trek Clothing Committee Chair. Did I explain this already? We're doing a three day pioneer hike pulling handcarts this summer with the youth of our church and I'm in charge of making sure everyone is dressed "appropriately". This of course does not mean historically accurately. Unfortunately. But you really can't expect that of around 100 kids from tons of different backgrounds. Anyway, I've compiled a lot of information and had to present it tonight to all the youth leaders. If you guys are interested, check out the web pages I made with lots of info about Mormon Pioneers and what they wore as well as what we'll be wearing on our trek. I didn't write all of the information I've posted, but have gleaned and filtered lots of things from internetland. And created the "bloomers" tutorial myself. :)
Now that that's out of the way it's on to the corset!! And then finish the Francaise (I decided not to stress about getting that done for this weekend, but Costume Con instead) and then FINALLY on to the Regency plans. And a million other little things, hats, wigs, etc. But I have three weeks! I think I can get it done!
But now you know why I haven't been posting much. I'll try to be better!
