Everything's Smooth Sailing

Just a quick update.

My latest project is a pair of shorts from the Smooth Sailing pattern from Wearing History. http://www.wearinghistorypatterns.com/smooth-sailing-1930s-sports-togs-pattern/

Edwardian photoshoot

My friend Katie is taking a photography class in college  and she called me last week to ask me if  I would go with her to take some photos. Of course I said yes! 
And then she made the mistake of saying "And you can dress up." 

*evil grin* 

I narrowed myself down to two costumes, but it was still a lug... all those petticoats and underthings... Shoes... ect. 

I ended up only using this one due to lack of daylight. We headed up to Cades Cove after she got off work at 3:00 and by the time we got up there things were getting dark. 

Now I can't remember if I ever blogged about this outfit before since it was made in my long internet-less days. 

The blouse is from Folkwear's "Gibson Girl" shirtwaist and the skirt is from Butterick 3418 (Now OOP I think) 

There are many more photos to come, but these were some that I begged her to take on my Iphone. What do you think?
