Barnstormers Ball

August 28th, 2018

This past Saturday, we went to the Barnstormers Ball at the Owl’s Head Transportation Museum. We wanted to go last year, but we were already booked by the time we found out about it. This year, we waited, and waited, and purchased tickets when we saw they went on sale. We got all gussied up, met the friends, and all headed down together.

I made a dress, hat, and clutch for myself, as well as hats for Mr Chiots (and a bowtie to match) and our neighbor Matt.

We had a great time and hope to do it in the future. Having a theme like this makes a regular event a little more fun. Finding period costumes was great fun, in fact I’m already thinking about what I’ll make to wear next year.

What fun things have you been doing lately?
