I spent the Memorial Day weekend on Long Island visiting K. We had two major goals for the weekend: sew him two tunics and a toga, and run in a 5k together. We used K's mother's sewing machine, a moderately old Singer. Here is K sewing the first tunic.
this website to figure out what exactly we were shooting for. Of course, we weren't as interested in perfect historical accuracy as they are--so our tunics and toga are just cotton. I did a fair amount of the pinning and ironing, since that takes more practice to do well and quickly and we were in a bit of a hurry, but I didn't do all of it by any means, and K did all of the sewing.
As far as the 5k goes, there really weren't any on Long Island on Memorial Day weekend. So we ran a 4 mile race instead. We finished in 38:50, which, although certainly not likely to break any records, is a time I can be happy with--especially for a first race!
How did I get so lucky?
