The Legend of Sleepy Hollow

Mark & Andrea Amey
Notice Mark's apron attached to his button. This is for a working impression.



Jenny & Vance

When Jenny and I first met we discovered that our husbands had similar names - Vince and Vance, and that Vince and his brothers joke that Vance is his evil twin, and Vance joked that Vince was his evil twin! Now we know that we have to get the two of them together to meet! I'm sure they'll discover that neither is the evil twin. ;)

This burgandy cotton dress is one of my favorites that I've made! It was based off of a c1795-1810 dress from Pennsylvania. I draped the pattern from pictures of the original. It's the perfect style for Rock Ford Plantation, where they focus on the era between 1794-1802 (the years Edward Hand and his family lived in the home before he died in 1802).

  1. How fun! Looks like you had a blast. I love your mother's 1790's gown. It's just gorgeous.
