Will Sew for Pride and Prejudice

The high school play is rapidly approaching. The girls have been working hard at memorizing lines for their parts. Kendra is Jane, the oldest Bennett sister and Kaitlyn is Charlotte, the one who actually marries Mr. Collins after he is rejected by Elizabeth. After talking to the drama teachers and a couple of other moms, I have decided to plunge head first into assisting the girls at sewing themselves a costume for the play. We looked at two lovely patterns, and decided on this one. I am excited at the prospect of them learning and taking pride in making their costumes themselves - with a little help from their mom.

  2. You know...to make extra money, if the dresses come off w/o a lot of hassles...SELL THEM in an Etsy store. I would totally buy one. I'm serious. It's very unique and when would Pride & Predjudice ever go out of style? never.

  5. I am so excited and disappointed at the same time! Disappointed because I can't see them in the play. As you know "Pride and Prejudice" is my all time favorite book and Kendra and Kaitlyn are my all time favorite girls(except Brenna of course!!) What a combination and I have to miss it. Will they make a recording of the play?

  6. Hey,
    my 16 yod just made that dress for her homeschool co-op class last semester. She had never sewn anything before but with a little help (not from me) she did a beautiful job. The thing is, she will never wear it and doesn't even want to consider trying to alter it to something she would wear. I know you want to help your daughters sew your own but if you get in over your head or just want, I could send you this dress. I'd love for it to be used for something. Contact me through my blog.
