This is my finished Mennonite get-up. I wore it around Salem for the Halloween weekend.
I walked around with my hands inside the bib because it was just so comfortable. Apparently Mennonites do this too. However, I feel like anyone in overalls does this. It just happens.

Last week I started working on my Mennonite Halloween Costume. This week, I finished it.

With the shirt done, the only thing left was for the actual wedding to happen, so both sides of the family convened at my sister & brother-in-law’s home.

But more then just it being a wedding, I learned something new about my family that had never been talked about.

Last week I started working on a shirt that I’m going to wear for my sister’s wedding. This week, I finished said button-up and I can genuinely say, I kinda like it. I am okay with the sewing and the fit is pretty good. But not only did I get the shirt done, my sisters
