The Wool dress complete

Hey everyone!
My friend just posted pictures on fb and now I good photos of my finished plaid navy blue wool dress I have been working on since August and I finished it last thursday before our big reenactment at Ceder creek.

I can't believe I finally conquered pleating the skirt! With my amazing sisters help I did! :)

 Yes it has double puff sleeved drafted by my dear sister Bethany over at diary of a seamstress. She was a huge help to me in the fitting process of the bodice and learning how to pleat as well as do puff sleeves. I love the result.
I am chatting with new and old friends below. The Lord brought so many young ladies from all over the east coast to this event that were inspiring to chat with.
                                      
 Our camp below with lots of our members of our group. You can also see my finished star quilt on the ground. I finally finished it! :) Just in time for the event!

We did quilting demonstrations on saturday and had a fun time doing a baby quilt for a friend who is expecting. All in all the event was wonderful and through the Lords providence we met a lot of great people and had a great time with friends!

have a blessed day and Lord willing more photos to come from the event.

In Christ,
Rebecca

The dress is absolutely beautiful. It was very nice to meet you last weekend. All of the ladies were very nice and dressed very beautifully. I really love the sleeves on your wool dress. They looked so feminine.

I love your dress, Rebecca! :)

It is lots of fun to wear dresses that are a style from the past...it's like reliving history. :)

Every year, there is a Historical Ball for homeschoolers, and I attended it for the first time this past March...I wore a pink Civil War dress. It was so much fun!

Your blog is great, by the way! :D

Blessings in Christ,
Moriah
