Hopewell Furnace Preparation

I get to go to the Into the Eye of the Storm event the end of May!! The event is held at Hopewell Furnace National Historic Site in Pennsylvania; not too far from my friend in West Chester. I'm so excited! It will be a different impression than I usually do--working class, no hoops. Thank goodness as I don't think my hoops will survive another suitcase trip.

So now I need to prepare my wardrobe. I need another pair of drawers for sure, check on what I have for an apron, I have petticoats and chemises, stockings, sunbonnet...but I want a new dress...of course.

I plan to use the green check homespun I had purchased some time ago for the Piney Woods event I never made it to. I am going to use the Fig Leaf Pattern 201 that I picked up at the Harrisburg Conference.

But drawers first. If it comes down to time and I can't finish the green check I still have the blue and white homespun I can wear.

Drawer fabric is done drying so off to cut patterns!

I know that feeling. I need to make another chemise and pair of drawers, and I'd rather have a new dress!
