Why did you decide to make a webpage, you ask? I hope the reasons are somewhat obvious, but I had a few specific things in mind. First, I wanted to show my friends what I had made. My friends from college all live about 2000 miles away, so the internet was the best way to show-off .
But most importantly, when I started to sew I wanted to see pictures of what other people had done. Unfortunately, I didn't find many sites with detailed information, especially about the time periods that I'm interested in. There are a lot of great resources out there (see my links page for some of them) but I wanted things like dress diaries and specific information about how things were made. I also wanted pictures. A LOT of pictures. Which is why I have so many on my page. As far as I know, besides Farthingale's, I'm the only page that has a picture of a reproduction Regency corset.
So, I basically made a page that's like the page I wanted to find when I started sewing. I hope you enjoy it and perhaps learn something from it. It's a work in progress, I plan to document everything I make. Some things in great detail, others just a few pictures. That'll depend on the complexity of the project :)
Home, so I can check things out!
