These are photos of my fiance’, Aaron, and me, directly after he proposed to me in front of hundreds of people at the opening ceremony of the Fort Massac Annual Encampment in Southern Illinois.  It was a glorious, wonderful surprise.  So romantic!  And, as you can see, I am wearing my drawstring dress made with […] Read more…

I bought the Sense and Sensibility patterns for a Regency Gown and the Spencer Jacket (which I turned into a pelisse by following your instructions). My inspiration came from the book Sense and Sensibility by Jane Austen. I could identify myself with Elinor and picked the scene where she goes out for a walk in […] Read more…

My daughter got on a designing tangent, and drew designs for costumes and room settings for a number of fantasy parties (fantasy, as in, one can only fantasize about being able to afford one!).

This is a lovely pattern! I made it once before without taking the designer’s excellent advice and shortening the bodice to the right length. Doing it right this time around made a big difference–look at the fit of that bodice! I inadvertently installed a too-short zipper in the side seam which makes the dress very […] Read more…
