I am just in love with this block-printed Indian cotton I got on eBay from @handicraftpalace. The variations in the print are so on point for the Regency Era, and I can't wait to get started on my winter day gown! #historicalclothing #historicalfashion #regencyfashion #regencygown #empirefashion #blockprint #historicalsewing #fabric #indianfabric ...

There's a ball in four weeks, and that means I've got to get busy and stitch up a gown... After I catch up the blog and repair hubby's breeches and make him a waistcoat. You know, marathon sewing stuff on a tight time schedule in the middle of schoolwork and Thanksgiving. 🥴 #wip #historicalfashion #historicalcostuming #regencyfashion #regencycostume #regencydress #historicalcostume #empirefashion #regencyball #gottagetbusy #sewlikemad ...

It's #silly7th today, and, boy, after this week, I am ready for some silliness! Life isn't perfect, and neither are we, and today is the day we remember to show the unglamorous and often goofy side of ourselves. So here's my 1780s-1930s mashup on a bright, shiny afternoon in September. 😎☀ ✌🏼(Thanks for this great hashtag, @pinsent_tailoring!) #sillyseventh #besilly #lookonthebrightside #historicalselfie #sillyselfie ...

Well, we've reached the end of this year's #fallforcostume challenge by @redthreaded, and this is my absolute latest costume. Ironically, I didn't sew a stitch. The skirt is vintage 1950s, then I've got a lavender cardigan from @mak_sweater over a white tank top, and my 15yo styled my wig. She and my 17yo hatched the idea for us to be anime characters for this year's Trunk or Treat, and I just went along for the ride. 😜 Bonus points to anyone who can figure out which characters we all are. 😉 Halloween cosplay is fun, but we all have to get busy pulling together 1810s outfits for Frontier Days next week at @fttoulousejackson. Whee! #costume #costumes #halloween #happyhalloween #japaneseanime #cosplay #anime #MyHeroAcademia ...

I really racked my brains to come up with a "spooky" post for today's #fallforcostume prompt, so I'm taking the easy way out and sharing a grainy old photo of my ancestors! That gal in the middle (the only one *not* wearing a dark skirt) is my great-grandmother. She had fiery red hair and was a couture seamstress in Georgia, making finely tailored clothes for the governor's wife for a time, according to family lore. Because my mother was named after her, she decided to learn to sew just like her Grandma Bettie, then pass that skill down to me. I have only one photo of me with my great-grandmother, which I will share tomorrow, as it shows how love of sewing and fashion can be passed down genetically! Gotta love these connections through time. Not really spooky, but it does give me goosebumps! #fashionhistory #historicalfashion #titanicera #historicaldress #ancestors #family #oldphoto #genealogy #sewing ...
