Aw that’s sweet of you!
Love your Oberyn Martell costume. Could you please tell me where you got the embroidered sunburst patches? I will be making a costume like this soon. thank you in advance.
Hi I got them on eBay. If you search for embroidered sun or star patches you should find something similar!
When did you create this blog?
When did you create this blog?
I started this blog in 2012 but didn’t post as frequently then as I do now!
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.
I’m glad you like my blog and post! You’ll have a wonderful time at Costume College. I’ll email you about the patterns. =)
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.
Thank you Jen for your very kind comments! I’m happy that you enjoyed my blog and my projects!

Did you ever finish Lady Tremaine’s green and black dress? If so any pics?
Yes, I have a post here: https://freshfrippery.com/2016/08/04/lady-tremaine-at-costume-college/
At some point I wanted to go back and add boning to the bodice but haven’t gotten around to it.
