It's been a while, hasn't it? What have I done in the past few years? Well, I finished school, started working in the retail industry, and took a looong break from sewing. Then a few months ago I realized how much I missed it, so I started up again. I have a few new projects that I'll be posting, starting with my: corded petticoat.

One quick announcement. I finally have a decent camera and I was able to reshoot some of my costumes when I was visiting my parent's home. So I will be updating a few of the costumes with (much) better pictures.

First, I adjusted the layout of the site a little bit, and the links to each section are a bit different.
Also, hate to say it, but I will not be updating this website anymore. I started costuming and documenting my progress on this website while I was in high school and college when I needed a creative outlet. But now that I am in a creative industry and have other things to focus on, I find myself losing interest in costuming, and doubting if I will even make any more costumes. I hate to say it, but I've begun to move on to other thing, and I can't see myself making any more costumes in the near future. Don't worry, this site will stay up and I may even post photo galleries of movie costumes if I find one that really strikes my fancy. But in general, it's been a great run, but I'm tossing in my hat. Best of luck on your costuming adventures, and still feel free to email me if you have any questions on costumes, I'll do my best to help!

I added the remaining pictures to the Secret of Moonacre gallery. There's only a few new ones, but they're up!

The update is here! I added a photo gallery of Maria's costumes from the movie "Secret of Moonacre" which can be see on the research page. I am in love with these fabulous whimsical late 19th century costumes and I want them all! And I've already found a few more images that I still have to add to the pages. So expect 1 or 2 more pictures on each page.

It's been a while since I've updated and I'm sorry for the delay, but it has been my last year of school, so I've been trying to focus on real life and getting a job in the fashion industry. However, there is a HUGE research update coming, hopefully sometime in the next week or two. So stay tuned!

A small update to the Penelope Research page. 2 pictures of her wedding dress and a screen capture of the jumper she wears when she is a school teacher.
Again, I'm sorry for the down time on my site. I thought the problem was fixed, only to find out it wasn't. But I finally sat down and spend the time on the phone and attempted to fix my site. Long story short, Frontpage sucks and Microsoft is evil and switching from frontpage into a regular html editor screws up your website. So I've had to rearrange a few things, but the majority of the site is working again. The research section is complete, with new photos in the Marian section of actual costumes from the exhibit in Leeds (Her red Casino Dress and her Night Watchman Outfit). Some of the site is still down, mostly my older costumes and the dress diaries. The text will load but the pictures will still ask for the password. I'm working to fix that too, it just takes time.
I apologize for the lack of posting and the down time for my website. With moving cross country and going to school I simply haven't had the time to sit on the phone for 2 hours to fix the problem, which was something with the servers changing. So hopefully everything is running again and you don't have to put in a password anymore. If not, I'll try to fix it again soon. I haven't made anything new anway, but hopefully I can add more pictures to the research section, specifically Penelope's page. Thanks!

I have a huge update to the site! I've finally finished a project that I've been working on for a few weeks (trying to finish up school takes a lot of work!) and I present to you a gallery of BBC's Robin Hood Season 2 Marian Cosumes! You can also find it in the "Research" Section of the site. I hope you enjoy!

I made a page for the striped sun dress that I completed over my spring break. You can find it here.
March 17, 2008
All pages should be updated with the new look. I also updated the gallery and added a new page under fashion of a yellow skirt I made last year but never got around to putting it on here.

It has almost been a year since I have updated my site. I have been busy with real life, and really have not been sewing much. Then, in October my computer crashed and I decided to get a Mac instead of a PC which I had been using before. That led to issues with finding a text editor and an uploading client, but now that's all straightened out, and on top of that, I have been sewing again. So not only should you expect updates much more frequently, I decided to give this site a face lift. There are quite a few pages to switch over to the new look, so please be patient while I get everything working again.
All older updates are in the Archives.
