And We're Off

So as an introduction I am new and an old friend to the world of sewing. I have been sewing small things such as dolls clothes and little projects as far back as I can remember. It was just recently after spending hours drooling over others ren fair garb that I decided to bit the bullet and make one of my own. Since this time I have been hooked. I have fallen in love with costuming, especially historical costuming. I have been a history fanatic since birth and have always love to dress up. I have just found the more adult outlet for both of these. My costumes to date include my Ren Dress compete with underpinnings and head wear as well as a men's ren doublet, pants and hat. In addition I have made a cloak and corset.

My current project is a replica of a 1865 Carriage dress.

This includes, corset, pantaloons, camisol, and hoop skirt. So far this dress has been easier and more of a challenge than my previous projects but I have fallen in love with it. Right now I am in the process of sewing on sleeves and figuring out how to make them fit right. I have to tell you , drop shoulders are not easy!

So that is it for now, it was nice to meet all of you and I hope to hear from you in the future. Keep your eyes out for project updates and costume tutorials.
