Civil War with Jack and Annie and Hannah!
The girls are going to a book party at Barnes and Noble this Saturday. Hannah chose the dress from the front of the book called: Civil War on Sunday by Mary Pope Osborne. It is in the Magic Tree House series. Here is Hannah in it, and here is the book cover, so you can see the dress that I adapted about three different patterns to get what I wanted! The apron/pinafore is made with a white cotton muslin and the dress is a soft lightweight cotton/poly gauze. I wanted to keep it cool for her since it is hot here in VA. Still need to do the finishing work: hem, buttons trim threads etc. Does it look similar to the photo? I'm very pleased and Hanah said that she loves it!!
