HAPPY THANKSGIVING...1860's Style...

Yep, I'm still alive and kicking ;)  I have lots of excuses for not posting, way too long of a vacation(I know, sounds impossible), laptop problems, over extending myself with volunteering(soccer coach, school, church), a lot going on in my own mind, and I just really haven't had the time.  And I'm really trying to connect to the real world and not just the online one.  But I do miss it, so I'm going to try to slowly work on posting again, if nothing else than for a history of life for me.

Speaking of history, what do you think of my first ever historical dress?  I made it last week from Past Patterns #803 for our annual church craft fair.  I made a chemise and petticote  too, but I bought the corset and cheated with a bridal crinoline.  It didn't turn out perfectly, but I'm happy with it for my first shot at such a thing.

I'm wishing you and your loved ones a very wonderful Thanksgiving.  And if you have never made your own cranberry sauce, you MUST!! It is so easy and tastes heavenly.



  1. Glad you are doing well. Great job on the dress. Miss reading your posts. Have a happy Thanksgiving.

  2. Awesome dress Tiff !
