All of you ladies were so encouraging with my post on the 1905 blouse, and I seriously was going to wear the accessories too. However with my recent custom orders (and getting another one) I've been informed that two of them m.u.s.t. be finished this week. That means 4 aprons, 1 dress, and 1 jumper must be completed by Saturday.
So...I won't have time to sew my blouse for our church's "Old Fashioned Sunday" on Independence Day. But that doesn't mean I can't dress old fashioned. If I can find my cream cotton Folkwear Gibson-Girl blouse and a prairie skirt I'll wear that and will look very pioneer (something which our pastor eluded to on Sunday), but my sisters and I are leaning toward a 1940-ish retro look with red lipstick and nail polish, netted hats, and heels. Never before have I tried to pull off that look, as I tend to like the 1930s era and my other sisters like the 40s era, so we'll see what happens! =) Any tips from you gals would be fabulous!
For the picnic I'm bringing a cherry pie using my Grandma's award-winning recipe, and some of these lemon bars (if I have time to run to the store for lemons!) for dessert.
