Giveaway Winner & July Miscellany

July has sped past faster than I could find time for blogging. I'm long overdue to announce the July Pay It Forward Giveaway Winner...

Gabriela Salvador you won! Email me your address and I will send you your new apron. (sew18thcentury @ gmail.com)

Here are some fun history photos from this month and a preview of two upcoming posts...

Tall Ships

We celebrated the Ocean State Tall Ships Festival earlier this month. I spotted this tall ship off of Ocean Drive after the closing Parade of Sail. Seeing this boat in the distance painted a picture of what the harbor must have looked like in the 18th and early 19th centuries.

More photos from the Tall Ships event forthcoming.

Plimoth Wedding

There was a wedding at Plimoth Plantation!I love how the bride wore her hair down and not pulled back...

...I also really loved (and slightly envied) the bride's apron. The photos don't give justice to the embroidered detail.

Newport Antiques Show

Besides the Winter Antiques Show, I think this Show is the ultimate in antiquing. So many beautiful things!

Mid-Century Modern Sewing

I tried making a late 1950s dress. Details coming in a future post.
