My Pioneer Clothes - REVEALED!

The moment you've ALL been waiting for -


Sorry to delay.
But as CRAZY as it sounds, I did NOT take ONE picture on the pioneer trek.
Yes, we took our camera, but we never had time to even get it out.

We did have two photographers with us and a videographer.
So I relied on them!

I just got the DVD with the 45 minute movie and additional 1,000 shots not used in the movie.
I WILL chronicle the whole trek..........but not today and not is one post.

Without further ado, I present.............
My Pioneer Wardrobe -

Day 1 - "Old" outfit from my last pioneer trek.  A nice combination of calico and gingham.  I felt a little bit like Dorothy though with the gingham. hair is washed and everything is clean because it is 5:30 am and we are loading the buses.  We haven't even started yet.

Day 2 - Sorry - no front view of the really cute apron!!!

Crossing the Sweetwater River.  You bet I raised those skirts to by chin!!!  I DID NOT want to get dirty!
Day 3 - This became know as my "Fall' ensemble.  Oh, I wish you could see the cute brown skirt!

Women's Pull - Once again, I'm raising my skirt to protect from dust and dirt.  We all have our priorities!

Memories! Good times!!!!

Thanks to Margaret for the fabulous wardrobe!
Can you believe what a good friend she is to sew all these clothes!
That's LOVE!

You were well covered for that whole trek, it looks like. The colors were fabulous. Now, will you be incorporating some of those fashions into your Skirtember wardrobe? ;)

That looks like so much fun. I wish they would have done treks when I was in young women.
Love the cute dresses.

I think Day 2's outfit, especially has some everyday potential! Did the others feel underdressed? Love it!
