Had a living history event bright and early today and managed to finish my outfit last night at 11:30 pm. Ugh. The event went well though. We had a couple schools come to a local museum where we gave educational demonstrations about Manitoba's Selkirk Settler history. I was at a station with another lady where we talked about what kids wore 200 years ago. We had two kids (boy and girl) from each group dress up in some clothes and the kids all enjoyed that.

I took some pictures of my outfit when I got home. They are in the hallway because the rest of our house is crammed full with stuff at the moment (my stuff from Ontario and stuff from my grandmother's). I like this outfit, but the waist is seriously too low, which bothers me because I think it makes it look more 1820s than c.1815. However, when wearing an apron over it, it's really not noticeable, so whatevs. The real point is that I hand-sewed an entire outfit and that now I have something of my own to wear to living history stuff!

I also took pictures of the pockets I made (which were what I was finishing last night), but I'm saving those for another post because they are my HSM entry. :)
