Yes Civil war photos of my family again!

Hello everyone!

At an event in gettysburg, PA in november a good friend of ours was willing to do some professional photos of my family in period clothing. She did a great job don't you think?!
 You can see the braiding I did on my paletote recently as well. I had made the paletote last year but never got around to the braiding until this year. :) Its cotten braiding from abrahams lady.
Sisters, sisters!

You can also see my wool/silk blend dress in the above photo, especially the sleeves Beth and I drafted in August and I finished the dress in october. Go figure! It sat for months untouched, because the pleating of the waist was so frustrating to me. But I got it done in time for our first event of the season in october. Now its been worn 4 times! I love this dress! my favorite one out of the 4 I own from the period. I am also wearing my first knitting project I ever did back in september wool cuffs. they are purple!

This photo was done this weekend at a friends house that was a hospital during the civil war and we were able to stay and they had a christmas civil war social as well as attended with dancing and all. But I don't have photos because I forgot my camera at their house! So this photo will have to suffice from our friend who is a professional photographer. I believe I look shocked or scared or something in this photo. But oh well!

Modern photos of my family sometime in the future Lord willing!

In Christ,
Rebecca

You are such a lovely family Rebecca!

I especially like the one where you are wearing your beautiful coat/cape.

Yes, the last one was a bit different...you all looked very distracted :)

Be Blessed dear one!

I found your blog through a comment you left on a blog I follow. I am so glad to have discovered your lovely "home on the Internet". I too love to sew modest clothing, and to find creative ways to use fabric that I have either purchased at a clearance sale or received as a gift. Your Civil War era garments are truly wonderful. You did an absolutey beautiful job! I look forward to checking back in with you from time to time to see what you have been up to!

I pray you and your family will have a blessed and joyous Christmas season!
