About Me

Hello! I’m a fabric junkie interested in historical costuming and household crafts. I’ve sewn Victorian, medieval, Regency, 1920s, 18th century and more.

This blog is part dress diary, part home decor, and part reminders for my future self on how I did things.

Follow along for crafty adventures, features on past projects and a tutorial here and there.

  4. Love your blog. Found it through your snark post which I linked to on my Steamtorium FB page. Something for all of us to keep in mind. Ive been sewing for many years but only recently gotten into costume sewing. Looking forward to attending Costume College for the first time in 2018. I’ve developed and written patterns for a unique Steampunk Teacup Holster and an Undercorset Belt set. Would you be interested in making and reviewing the patterns on your blog? I would supply the pdf patterns to you and you would be free to write your opinion. You can see samples of the finished items in my Steamtorium shop on Etsy.

  5. Just wanted to let you know I greatly admire your talent and boldness in the exquisite execution of the garments you have made. Wow. I found this blog looking up regency clothing for reference. (Reading through the entire collection of Georgette Heyer and wanted to get my idea of a ‘pelisse’ correct. I am so impressed with your creations–thank you for posting on the internet, what an inspiration to the creative world.
