V210: Sugarpine Living History Day 2012, and 1933 Vintage Vogue Dress

As promised, here are pics from today’s lovely event at the Ehrman Mansion, Sugarpine State Park, Lake Tahoe.

My dress all finished, paired with so-so hair.  Always a pleasure when one’s hair doesn’t dry overnight, and drastic measured must be taken the next day, lol.

I finished the 1933 Vintage Vogue 2671 just in time, and even though I feel I didn’t do a very pristine job, I like how it turned out a lot, and it was comfortable to wear.  I paired it with a pink silk slip I made a few years back.

Finished Vogue 2671, with my alteration to the neckline.  I also shortened the skirt considerably.
