A Beauxbatons Uniform - The Dress
My sister finally decided to read the Harry Potter books for herself. She has seen all the movies multiple times. She heard all the books when my mom read them aloud to the whole family back when my brothers were in elementary school. Yet, until somewhat re...

Plaid Wool Eastbourne Trousers (by Scroop Patterns)
I'd decided no pattern testing this year, or very little. I did a ton of pattern testing last year, over the summer especially. (Not every pattern I tested has been blogged yet, there were too many!) While it was fun, and I wound up with some garments I lov...

A Little Pink Silk Bag
The Historical Sew Monthly challenge for November was "Purses and Bags". My first thought for the challenge was I could make a carpet bag. That would be a really cool project!! Unfortunately, knee deep in costuming "A Christmas Carol" at the time, I most ce...

The Impulsive Red Shirt From Impulsively Bought Fabric
I should probably not buy fabric for a while - a long while. My fabric stash has gotten huge - and I can usually find in it whatever fabric I need for a particular project. So yeah, no more buying fabric would be a good thing, a very good thing, and I'm wor...

A New Bodice on a Snowy Day
My list of "planned projects" is long. Like really long. Long enough I probably wont get it all done in my life time, let alone this year, long. And I really don't think that last sentence is really an over statement. Yet, I want to get at least all the pro...

The Mid-19th Century Wrapper to Hide the Ball Gown
For a couple weeks over the summer I became mildly obsessed with mid 19th-century (1840's-60's) wrappers. A wrapper is an informal, full-length, front-closing garment a women would have worn in the morning, over all her undergarments (corset, petticoats, ho...

My Sister's Chrismas Dress
My sister almost didn't get a Christmas dress this year. It's not that she didn't want one - she most definitely did. It's not that I didn't want to make her one. I did - it's a tradition. It's not that we didn't have a design for the dress - oh no, my sist...

Pattern Hacking Like a Boss
Christmas was over. I'd made it public that I would not be beginning any new commissions until the new year. The commissions I did have were finished. The play was over and the costumes were packed up. I had no pressing deadlines for anything. The week betw...

A Scroogy, Sparkly, Shiny, Brocade Dressing Gown
A night gown would have been boring. Scrooge spends the majority of "A Christmas Carol" in his night clothes, viewing his past, present, and future with a Christmas spirit from each era.  Thus, as my brother was cast as Scrooge in a production of "A Christm...

The Skirt Born of Curiosity
Please tell me I'm not the only one who orders a piece of fabric just because the description piques my interest, even though the picture of the fabric doesn't necessarily appeal to me. Please? Anyone? I bought this fabric not because I needed it, not even ...
