August 21, 2014: Back in the costume shop for the day! I started the morning by pleating the apron I've been working on to the waistband and securing it with tiny running stitches. Then, taking a break from the Sophia Project, I got to help the costuming ladies finish the costumes for the Mad Hatter's Tea Party.

August 23, 2014: I was thrilled to be called in to model in the fashion show for the museum’s second, annual Victorian themed day! Bevin spent the entire morning getting all of us models dressed for the show at noon. Then, at the fashion show, I enjoyed parading around with the others and demonstrating the change in silhouette throughout the Victorian Era.

|Two thumbs up for a great day!|
