A Stitch in Time

Part of our preparation for this summer's adventure included a sewing bee! This past January my niece and I traveled to NY to visit the eldest sister for a weekend that included a day trip into NYC for brunch at the American Girl Place and another day that included stitching prairie dresses for the vacation. I was assigned the task of sewing a matching dress for the American Girl doll which took longer to create than the assigner anticipated; however, mother, daughter, and doll will be properly outfitted for this adventure. We stitched aprons, bonnets, long skirts, and basically transformed our wardrobe into period appropriate outfits, the best we could at least.
