What to Wear:
This is a summer, daytime event, so wear lightweight, light colored fabrics, floaty cottons and voiles, linen, and lace.  Bring a hat and sensible shoes.  Flapper attire is not quite right for this daytime event.  Here are some suggestions and inspirations for women and men:


  1. If you want to make a quick dress for this event try the One-Hour dress. It took me just under 2 hours but it's still fast and easy. I'll be making another one for this years event. If you want help we can have a sewing party and make our dresses together. Here is my blog where I talked about making the dress and shows some pictures.
