Luckily, I wasn't the only one with sewing to do, and we set up shop in our dorm suite Saturday night. I also had a lot of help from several new friends--thank you all!! Quinn, who was a wonderful teacher and helped me figure out how to fix the mistakes on my 1860s gown, has a blog of her own and I encourage you to add it to your list! You can find her at The Quintessential Clothes Pen.
Of course, I had an incredibly ambitious set of gowns planned for this week...so really, all of the crazy sewing was really my own fault. It was totally worth it.
