~Little Women~

Sometime last year my friend, Lydia, and our moms, decided to begin the journey of making a Civil War dress. We had read the enjoyable book Little Women, which did influence us! In the last month of 2016 I finished my dress. We wanted to have a Tea party with our hard- labored for dresses. I will say that I can't image making all my clothes. I feel quite sorry for the women in Civil War times!!! Anyway, here are a few pics of the dresses.


This is my dress...don't laugh at my pose, I was trying appear 1860ish☺


This is a picture of Laura ( she was wearing Lydia's mom's dress ), Lydia, and me in our dresses!
P.S. My mom took this beautiful picture!
