Pioneer Dresses

BoBeana has the opportunity to go on a Pioneer Trek this summer and we are in the process of making her two pioneer dresses that she will wear for the four days that she will be pulling a hand-cart.

Here are the pics getting started and I'll add to it as we go!

True to my nature I decided to sew Coyote a Renaissance tunic the night before the big party at school. I rummaged through my fabric and here's what I threw together.

He wasn't comfortable baring his hairy chest and couldn't find his satchel for the picture. Every boy needs a satchel!

Can I just say I love my new sewing machine. Look at that stitching!

I'm thinking there aren't a lot of people out there who are searching for a way to make a tunic so I'm not posting instructions. But - if you have a burning desire to dress your children in tunics, let me know. I'd be happy to post them :)
