Civil War.

One of the things on my "to-do" list was to finish a civil war dress that I had started last year.
All I had to do was to finish the bodice.

This year has been a rather strange one to say the least. One of my brothers got married this last weekend(more on that later.)
Our dog, Peanut had a stroke.
my Dads job has been a bit spotty...
And just life in general.
Usually around this time for the past nine years (that's right, 9!) we would be getting ready for our first reenactment for the year, Willamette mission. this year we are unable to go:(
So last week when I was working on my dress I had little motivation other then just getting it done and of the list.

I am rather pleased with how it came out. there are LOTS of mistakes but I really don't care.
I have not made the collar for it yet, But it Will have one.

my sewing machine can not do button holes any more so I was faced with two options, them ALL by hand.... #2. ask my Mom if she would be willing to sew them on her machine.
My Mom is amazing :) she did them for me!

I wish I could wear it this weekend, but I am looking forward to when I CAN wear it!!!!
Happy Reenacting~
