We Were There! At the Battle of Fort Steilacoom

Victoria sewed her own, er, “War of Northern Aggression” era outfit! 
When we knew this event was coming up she put something together for Karen, and I made the boys jackets which for not having a pattern or any time, I think came out quite well! 

I had the most fun making those flags!  Adobe Illustrator came in handy for the stars and the placement.  Oh, I’ve no idea if I got them “correct” at all, but at least I got the points evenly spaced and into a circle, and that’s all I was going for   🙂

Caps from the sutler  :-) 
What I'm most impressed with was that the fabric I had happened to have lying about so closely matched the caps that we bought at the event!
