Hello everyone- my name is Kristin and I live just outside of Madison, Wisconsin. When I was very young, I found my grandmother’s 1894 Delineator Magazine, and I have been fascinated with historic fashion ever since. I went to college for Dance and Theatre, and spent a fair amount of time in the costume shop, where my costume prof taught me how to sew. I owe him so much. During that time, I had excellent opportunities to study actual historic garments, and continue that focus of study with actual garments, and with internet resources (isn’t Pinterest fun?). I cannot say that I have one single favorite era- it is too difficult to narrow it to one, and I have too many favorite eras to list here. My projects for the year 2014 include a Regency era day gown/jacket combination, a Titanic era boarding suit and hat, a Titanic era evening gown, and the restoration of a 1920’s flapper gown.
I’m curious to learn more about the projects everybody else is taking on during 2014. I find that reading about other projects, research, fabric choices, design dilemmas, etc, is very motivating! So, please feel free to share your projects!
