Playing "Dress-up" for the War of 1812 Quilt Show?

War of 1812 Period Costume Dress Up 

One of the things I love about the War of 1812 period as portrayed in classic films like Pride and Prejudice and Emma by Jane Austen are the gorgeous costumes!  The ladies at the Great Lakes Seaway Trail will be attired in period correct fashions for the 2012 quilt show - and maybe even sooner!  We’ve just ordered Regency Era patterns from one of my favorite re-enactor fashion designers Jennie Chancey.   

(and undies too!)

Hope to see many of you dressed in period costume too, in the interim you can check out her patterns at:  http://sensibility.com/about/
