And so it begins... Trek

My family is LDS ( Later day Saints).  One of the things we like to do as Mormons is to remember our past and look to the future.  One one way of doing that is to go on trek.  My family this summer all 5 of us will travel together to do a four day trek.  I hope this will be a very binding experience for my family.  The start of that is to sew clothes for my family to were during those four days.  Two outfits per-person  for my family that means 8 dresses, 4 aprons, 4 bonnets, 8 pantaloons... 2 shirts for my husband ( he will buy his pants I think).  So this is the start of that project  I could make blouses and skirts but that is harder to me to carry more items so I will make dresses. 

I found some of the fabric at walmart the striped one the cream with tan flowers and the white with blue flowers.  Not were I usually shop for fabric but it was 2.50 and on clearance and a very light weight cotton so I think it will work well especially since this is only for four days did not want this to be terribly expensive.  The rest came from my stash of fabric the plaid i used for little woman and I will be using it again using the same pattern I used in little woman.  In fact all 8 dresses will be the same pattern in the exact same size  as me and all my daughters pretty much wear the same size dress these days which will make this go faster.  One of my daughters the youngest has actually passed me in height recently so this will not last long that we can do this.

If you want to see the dresses pattern  all fancy for plays follow these links below.  But for trek I will make them much more simple with less layers so my daughters and I do not over heat.
from Little woman
Amy's blue  dress 

Jo's red dress

Meg's blue dress

I also made a brown one for beth and two gray ones for beth but not sure I ever made a post on them and a gray  black white one for jo but never posted about them.

Beth's Gray dress with pink trim and Amy's blue dress with apron
Beth's Brown dress with 100 year old lace  Amy's blue dress Jo's  red dress
Amy's first dress with red trim and Beth's brown dress
Jo's dress black white gray with red flowers this was the actresses favorite dress of the play

Beth's dress with White trim Meg's Blue dress

The first dress all the sister's in little woman wore for act one all the same dress pattern just embellished differently to make them look different.  Amy's red and gray dress Meg's blue dress Jo's red military dress and Beth's brown dress

So this is a pattern I have made at least 7 times already  i think actually 8 times and will make 8 more times I can pretty much make it in my sleep these days.
