The Wrapper Dress: In Living Color!

 We visited Howell Living History farm today to watch the plowing match. Unfortunately we missed the majority of it because we got distracted catching crawdads at the creek. However, I did run into the woman who's costume I made so I wrangled her in for a picture! It was a HOT day and I can't imagine wearing that in the heat and humidity. Rumor has it some of the ladies forego their petticoats on days like this. I know I would.

I have to include a picture of one of the plowing teams. Aren't they beautiful? I could have watched them all day. Even their harnesses are gorgeous.
