History and Home Economics

What do these things have in common? Sewing costumes for re-enactments of course. Our dear friends in Maryland  inspired this endeavor.

Here is my tween, trying her hand at a Civil War period dress.

We haven't actually begun to cover the Civil War yet. We are still plodding along the Oregon Trail and studying the California Gold Rush. But since these costumes will take a while to come together, we will sew as we go. Meanwhile, a Westward Expansion Lapbook is in the works. Who knew history could be so much fun!
